Phil Shöenfelt: Veronika's Veil

VERONIKA'S VEIL
/Phil Shöenfelt/

There's a street at the edge of town
That I used to walk down
The wind blows through the broken doors
She don't live there anymore

It's so long ago
Where she is now, I don't know
She stayed just out of reach
Love cut me much too deep

Time slips away
Oh, the time slips away

She was young and she was cold
I felt the dagger in my soul
Something inside me died
With a smile I was denied

I fell down on my knees
She was like a saint for me
Too proud and too damn pure
I couldn't open up her door

Time slips away
Oh, the time slips away
Time slips away
Time slips away
Oh, the time slips away

Oh, my darlin' I loved you so
But it's so long ago
And in the deeps of the darkest night
I kiss your lips and I hold you tight

You were young and you were cold
I felt the dagger in my soul
But babe, if I could find you now
I'd tear your veils and I'd break your vows

Time slips away
Oh, the time slips away
Time slips away
Time slips away
Oh, the time slips away
