Who Knows Where the Time Goes
Ye Auld Triangle
It’s up in the morning
And on the downs
Little white clouds like gambolling lambs
And I’m breathless over you

And the red-breasted robin beats his wings
His throat it trembles, when he sings
For he is helpless before you
The happy hooded bluebells bow
And bend their heads all a-down
Heavied by the early morning dew
At the whispering stream
At the bubbling brook
The fishes leap up to take a look
For they are breathless over you
Still your hands
Still your heart
For still your face comes shining through
And all the morning glows anew
Still your mind
Still your soul
For still the fire of love is true
And I am breathless without you

The wind circles among the trees
And it bangs about the new-made leaves
For it is breathless without you
The fox chases the rabbit round
Little rabbit hides beneath the ground
For he is defenceless without you
The sky of daytime dies away
And all the earthly things they stop to play
For we are all breathless without you

I listen to my juddering bones
And the blood in my veins and the wind in my lungs
I’m breathless without you
Still your hands
Still your heart
Still your face comes shining through
And all the morning glows anew
Still your mind
Still your soul
Still the fire of love is true
And I’m breathless without you
And I’m breathless without you
And I’m breathless without you
