You Cannot Now but Be Afraid
Music: Lovely Molly.
|You cannot now but be afraid|
Of all that you might lose,
And curse the granite circumstance
That forces you to choose.
You are too young, a child yourself,
This child - our child - has no one
This fact will not relent, though
And everything we've wanted turns
I do not ask to live with you
That waits upon your willing love
