lyrics

It was in the spring of my eighteenth year, I first met that young Colleen;
There was starlight in her deep brown eyes, reflecting all the places she'd seen.
The way she smiled and caught my eye, I felt compelled to linger;
By the end of the night after several pints, I'd wrapped myself around her finger.

A lilac in spring, will wither too soon;
Our love might be true, but there'll be no honeymoon.

With reckless abandon I courted her they, from Kilkenny to Dingle Bay;
Never stopping to consider the path we were on, just young lovers at play.
She gave to me a love so sweet, I'd never know the likes of it before;
But now if I'm ever to escape my grief, I'll board a ship for foreign shore.

With summer gone and the days growing short, we set a date to be wed;
On the first of November after Samhain's feast, she'll join me in the marriage bed.
I couldn't see it was not meant to be, something just wasn't right;
Beneath the harvest moon she took her own life, I'm a widower on my wedding night.

Oh it took no time at all, for romance to bloom;
Now my sweet bride is lying in a tomb.
