Now I'm Going Away


Now I'm going away away
Lonesome heart along the road
I've meet my night today
And my heart’s between a load
I tell you a story
Full of sadden new and bold
There are no hearts of glory
Only those that have some gold

I have given much to time
But the dark is still thick between
Outside in it icily rime
There’s nothing much to be seen
Only love that’s gone wrong
Full of nothing to do
In my dark and lonesome song
I have tried to make up to you

Now I'll sing and go away
Fill my heart with lonesome tune
Meet my future in its gray
Nowhere to be reached anytime soon
There is love inside this deep
Full of heartbeats ticking strong
Hours gone yours to keep
Nothing more from here to long

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall
Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
