Story behind the song
A poem "Lost Love" was read out at a folk club I attend and the author ("Didi" E.M.Crook) said she'd always though it might be suitable for a song. I said I take a look at it - and here we are; hope I've done her beautiful words justice!
Lyrics
Lost Love (c) 2015 Music by A.P.LeFevre, Lyrics by E.M.Crook Vocals by Rachel Hack and Andrew LeFevre Verse 1 There’s a crying in the wind There’s a moaning in the heather There is sadness in the heath There is sighing in the weather Verse 2 The grass is waving at her feet Her skirt is blowing in the wind Her hair is streaming round her neck There is torture in her mind Break 1 Her shawl caught all about her Barefoot and wild she stands Spirit of the moorland heaths is she The girl with the roughened hands Verse 3 She thinks of her love of long ago Who passed away and left her He left when mist fell o’er the moor And went from her life forever Verse 4 Like her he was with raven hair Wild rugged and strong A moorland lad, born to be And should have lived there long Break 2 They played on wi-indy days and when mist shrouded the moor In summer sun they laughed with glee And ran to the weathered tor Verse 5 But now she stands there all alone Comfortless for ever There will always be the saddened heath And a sighing in the weather Break 1 (repeat) Her shawl caught all about her Barefoot and wild she stands Spirit of the moorland heaths is she The girl with the roughened hands The girl with the roughened hands
