Lyrics

Black was the colour of those endless eyes
Cut from the night of an eastern sky
We counted swallows as they passed us by
Last year.

Fortune came and fortune went
I had some luck but the money got spent
I'm going back to where the west wind went
My dear

She found work up in Abberdeen
Trouble found me like I'd never seen
I'm heading off to where I've never been
In fear

And the days run away like wild horses over the hills
And the gifts that you left me are dying on my window sill

Black was the colour of those endless eyes
Cut from the night of an eastern sky
I saw the swallows as they passed me by
This year.
