Lilly (The Fables) tabs

Click Here for tabs.

I crossed the wildest ocean,
And I reached the other side;
It's help from above and thoughts of your love,
That keep my soul alive.
I swam the highest river,
And I fought the strongest tide;
To prove my love true and pledge it to you,
You're the reason I survive.

And day after day, while I'm far away...

Lilly, I'll keep your light on,
So help me, I cross my heart;
Dance with me, please, in sweet memories,
To keep me till I come back home.
And one man can't stand it alone.

Some days we long for freedom,
Some days we hold the reins;
Some days we see some live for free,
Some still endure the pain.
It's a mountain of emotion,
Under God's great guiding hand;
When love has to part, the emptiest heart
Builds mountains out of sand.

But your light shines along, keeps me goin' on...

Lilly, I'll keep your light on,
So help me, I cross my heart;
Dance with me, please, in sweet memories,
To keep me till I come back home.
And one man can't stand it alone

Yea, dance with me, please, in sweet memories,
To keep me till I come back home,
And one man can't stand it alone.
