“Labour Of Love”
Artist: Peter Hammill
Albums: Patience (1983)
The Essential Collection (1986)

You don't remember all the things I've done
You never catch the careful words I choose
Your present will not admit my patient efforts
But it's a labour of love
I offer to you

Unselfishness
Does that hold the space between us?
A helplessness
A nothing-left-to-prove?
A silence more eloquent than any passion?
It's a labour of love
I offer to you
It's a labour of love

It's a gift of love

Take this hand
And you will hold its stories
Beat the heart
And find the tell-tale truth
Take this gift
Receipt will give it value
It's a labour of love
I offer to you
It's a labour of love
I offer to you
It's a labour of love

It's a gift of love

It's a labour of love
It's a labour of love
It's a labour of love

It's a labour
It's a labour of love
It's a labour
It's a labour of love
It's a labour
It's a labour of love
It's a labour
It's a labour of love
It's a labour
It's a labour of love
It's a labour
It's a labour of love
It's a labour
It's a labour of love
It's a labour
It's a labour of love
It's a labour
It's a labour of love
It's a labour
It's a labour of love
