Just Beyond the Gate

from by John King



I've been taking all I can take
I've been giving a love that'll break
When I met you I was a snake
But you warmed me with the light from your face

You flew like a fairy, a whisper of night
But you left me at the sign of first light
When I held you, no sparks in my heart
Were awakened til we drifted apart

When I'm left to my own devices
I settle for singing, a melody suffices
And I know that the truth is you're so far away
In the pastures I'm after, just beyond the gate
