Lyrics Raglan Road

On Raglan Road of an autumn day
I saw her first and knew
That her dark hair would weave a snare that I might one day rue
I saw the danger and I passed along the enchanted way
And I said let grief be a falling leaf at the dawning of the day
On Grafton Street in November
We tripped lightly along the ledge
Of a deep ravine where can be seen the worth of passions pledged
The Queen of Hearts still making tarts and I not making hay
Oh I loved too much and by such, by such is happiness thrown away
I gave her gifts of the mind
I gave her the secret sign
That's known to the artists who have known the true gods of sound and stone
And her words and tint without stint
I gave her poems to say
With her own name there and her own dark hair like clouds over fields of May
On a quiet street where old ghosts meet
I see her walking now
Away from me so hurriedly my reason must allow
That I had loved not as I should a creature made of clay
When the angel woos the clay he'll lose his wings at the dawn of day
