    "Under The Yew" Lyrics

    Will Cookson

    The shadows grow long in the churchyard
    As the skylarks fly away
    And lost to the loam all the dreams we'll never know
    We'll dream them there one day

    I've sung the hymn from its first bars
    And I fought my way through the game plan
    Now for all the world I feel like a little girl
    But I'll do my best to be a man
    Yeah I do the best, the best I can

    Rook on the bough what tales have you to tell me

    From over the stile and the hills of this evening view
    If only these stones quiet in the moon, would allay my fears
    And we could have dreams asleep under the yew

    Into the past go our futures
    In running streams will our thoughts flow
    Unto the earth the sum of all our worth
    And the seasons that we'll never know
    And that garden we'll never grow

    Rook fly away from your bough into the night sky
    And carry our prayers on your wings up to the moon
    And watch the world spin until we've all had our turn and it's time to go home
    Back to the earth to sleep under the yew

    Safe in the earth asleep under the yew
