My love's been taken away from me
Bound in chains by the king's decree
A child of God accused of witchery
Imprisoned by their lies

The winds of fear
are blowing strong
They'll take her life
even though they're wrong
As the sun will rise
at the break of dawn
On the gallows she will die

Oh how cruel the hands of fate

Oh heaven stop this grave mistake
And grant this wish that I shall make
Instead of her, my life they take
Salvation lies too far

So beyond this world our hearts will twine
Even stronger still, yours and mine
Love immortal for all time
Written in the stars

Oh how cruel the hands of fate

Chorus
By the moonlight I wait for eternity
And pray that my love is returned to me
There's no man with a heavier heart than me
In the shadow of the Tyburn tree

Oh magic moon
won't you stay and hold back the sun
For my love and I, on a moonbeam will fly
And the morning never comes
And the morning never comes

Chorus
By the moonlight I wait for eternity
And pray that my love is returned to me
There's no man with a heavier heart than me
In the shadow of the Tyburn tree

By the moonlight I wait for eternity
With a hpoeful heart and a desparate plea
And a prayer that my love will be set free
From the shadow of the Tyburn tree
