A Strand to Hold

After Band of Gold by Freda Payne

 

Since You’ve come along

All I’ve got left is a strand to hold

All that’s left of the things I know

Is a strand to hold

It’s the memory of what used to be

Before You turned Your gaze on me

 

You took me from the shelter of my mother

I had never known or heard of any other home

But now I’m all alone

You see You promised and I took a vow

But after that night, no honeymoon

You keep me away from You

 

I wait here in the darkness of my lonely room

Filled with longing, about to swoon

Hoping soon that You’ll walk right through that door

And love me like never before

 

Since You’ve come along

All I’ve got left is a strand to hold

All that’s left of the me I know

Is a strand to hold

It’s the memory of what I used to be

Before You turned Your gaze on me

 

Oh don’t You know that I wait

In the darkness of my lonely room

Filled with longing, about to swoon

Hoping soon that You’ll walk right through that door

And love me like never before

 

Since You’ve come along

All I’ve got left is a strand to hold

All that’s left of the me I know

Is a strand to hold

It’s the memory of what I used to be

Before You turned Your gaze on me

 

Since You’ve come along

All I’ve got left is a strand to hold

All that’s left of the me I know

Is a strand to hold

And I’m hoping to keep holding on

And that my strand is on Your daaman.
