The Herald at Night
Lionel / ESL - August 2nd, 2006

C G    F F E    C F    F C
The herald came last night
He sat down by my bed
His weary frame so spare
His eyes a midnight sea.

C F G F G    F E    E C D C C     C G C

I knew right then, the old bridge broke,
That fragile mystic bridge,
Between tomorrow and yesterday
And stilled, the hands of time.

C G    F E    C F     F C G F F
The herald came last night
He sat down by my bed
His weary frame so spare
His eyes a midnight sea.

C G    F E    E C G C    C G C C G F C

A thin fist shook at me,
His bitter face a mask,
I knew right then, oh love I hold so dear,
This song will be your last.
