Sally Oldfield - Silver Dagger Lyrics

Driving in the wind an rain as evening comes
Longing to see him again I've been away too long
But in the moonlight I can feel my heart is beating like a drum
A wild suspicion flashes dark across my mind
Walking up the driveway I can see another woman by his side
I held my hand out and this is what I cried
"Here's a silver dagger, present for the bride
Silver dagger, shining in the night"
Shining in the night
Shining in the night
She offered me a cup of red, red wine
Said "Won't you try to have a good time"
I turned my eyes on to her face and I could read all the lines
I said "Whatever you try to do you know he's mine"
Walking up behind her I could see her face grow cold
I said "A gipsy's curse is on you and on everything you hold"
"Here's a silver dagger, present for the bride
Silver dagger, shining in the night"
Shining in the night
Shining in the night
"Here's a silver dagger, present for the bride
Silver dagger, shining in the night"
"Here's a silver dagger, present for the bride
Silver dagger, shining in the night"
Shining in the night
