My Love Will Be Shining on You

(For our wedding)
Everything changes and all things must pass,
No matter how lovely or kind.
The finest of crystal becomes broken glass,
And the eagle some day will go blind.

But don’t cry, my darling, don’t waste any tears.
My heart will be faithful and true.
Till the darkness descends at the end of our years,
My love will be shining on you.

I was hungry and cold till the day that we met.
I was lost in the badlands of gloom.
I stood on the cliff and I watched the sun set,
Awaiting the trumpets of doom.

But don’t cry, my darling, don’t waste any tears.
My heart will be faithful and true.
Till the darkness descends at the end of our years,
My love will be shining on you.

Then over my shoulder, the wind at my back,
A train whistle swept through the sky,
The sound of your love coming straight down the track,
And I bid all my sorrows good-bye.

So don’t cry, my darling, don’t waste any tears.
My heart will be faithful and true.
Till the darkness descends at the end of our years,
My love will be shining on you.
My love will be shining on you.
My love will be shining on you.
