Strawbs - That Which Once Was Mine



If in some capricious moment

I should give you cause to fear

Then you have but to remember

That my being here is mere fortune

For the rules have laid down

To guide the thoughts of those who stray.


If in some deserted hour

We should murmur last goodbyes

With the snowflakes falling softly

As the tears well in your eyes

Then we kiss but once and walk away

Never turning round

And the snow falls on our footsteps

Leaving nothing to be found.


And my life is yet determined

By the span of what it holds

And the span grows ever shorter

As my lifetime folds away.
