Now as the dawn is breaking,
my heart is breaking too
On this May morn as I walk out
my thoughts will be of you
And I'll write some words upon the wall
so everyone wlll know
I love so much that I could see
his blood upon the rose
Oh Grace just hold me in your arms
and let this moment linger,
They'll take me out at dawn
and I will die
With all my love I'll place this
wedding ring upon your finger
There won't be time to share our love
for we must say goodbye
There won't be time to share our love
for we must say goodbye
