Uriah Heep - "Lady In Black" (lyric video)

She came to me one morning
One lonely Sunday morning
Her long hair flowing
In the mid-winter wind

I know not how she found me
For in darkness I was walking
And destruction lay around me
From a fight I could not win

She asked me name my foe then
I said the need within some men
To fight and kill their brothers
Without thought of love or God

And I begged her give me horses
To trample down my enemies
So eager was my passion
To devour this waste of life

But she would not think of battle
That reduces men to animals
So easy to begin and yet
Impossible to end

For she the mother of all men
Did council me so wisely then
I feared to walk alone again
And asked if she would stay

Oh lady lend your hand, I cried
Oh let me rest here at your side
Have faith and trust in me,
She said and filled my heart with life

There is no strength in numbers
Have no such misconception
But when you need me be assured
I won't be far away

Those having spoke she turned away
And though I found no words to say
I stood and watched until
I saw her black cloak disappear

My labor is no easier
But now I know I'm not alone
I find new heart each time
I think upon that windy day

And if one day she comes to you
Drink deeply from her words so wise
Take courage from her as your prize
And say hello for me

Uriah Heep - Lady In Black
Ένας από τους "αθάνατους" ύμνους των Uriah Heep και ολάκερης της δεκαετίας του εβδομήντα. "Lady in Black". Το γνωρίσαμε από τον δεύτερο (και υπέροχο) δίσκο της Βρετανική μπάντας "Salisbury" που κυκλοφόρησε τον Φεβρουάριο του 1971, ενώ τον επόμενο μήνα "βγήκε" και αυτόνομα, ως single, με το "Simon the Bullit Freak" στην δεύτερη πλευρά του βινυλίου. Οι Uriah Heep γιορτάζοντας τα 50ά του γενέθλια δημιούργησαν (και κυκλοφόρησαν) προ ημερών ένα νέο lyric video...
