Lyrics

Down by the Mill

Summer’s over, you have gone
House is empty, shades are drawn
Sun is setting on the hill
Once we were lovers down by the mill

Down by the mill at the rivers edge
You took my lips, you took my dress
We lay there naked in the light

You held me close into the night

Oh, oh – sparrow sings, but other birds have flown
Oh, oh – summer’s died and you have gone for home, you have gone for home

Languid days when we belonged
A gypsy and her vagabond
We swam the river, climbed the hills
We ended up down by the mill

Down by the mill, at the rivers edge
You touched my skin and stole my breath
I lay with you, your summer bride
I felt no shame, you told no lie

Summer’s over, you have gone
House is empty, shades are drawn
Sun is setting on the hill
Once we were lovers down by the mill

A rough wind came to shake the trees
Our path was covered up with leaves
All around me barren fields
Once we were lovers down by the mill
