It starts at daylight
I see him before my sad eyes
I hear him breathing
Oh lover, need you to lead me
No never thought that you'd leave

That was my veil
That was my time
Once held secret
But now lies

No words can heal my heart
Inside I'm broken, now it's done
Was she a pretty girl
Does she have pretty hair
Was she soft-spoken
Was there a love there

That was my veil
That was my time
Once held secret
But now lies

Give back my veil
Give back my time
No more secret
You give me lies

Give me back my veil
Give back my life
No more secret
You give me lies
Lies
