There's a light that shines on Persephone,
Always a fire in her eyes,
And the last time that I went to her
I could tell things weren't right.

I just don't care to see your years go wasting,
There's no longer magic in your eyes.

In your time, you could outshine everybody else around,
But your off-stage ways might be a bore -
You take a bow, you take a fall.

I came to be here in the footlights,
To live with you through every song,
And your face displays a peaceful field.
I can't believe the curtain has to fall.

Now I know your years were never wasted,
Tonight I saw the magic in your eyes.

    A beautiful, epic, progessive-tinged ballad. The soloes are utterly gorgeous, sound very Pink Floydian. The chorus is rousing, emotional...'I just don't care to see your years go wasting'...indeed. I love the clunky, descending guitar riff after 'in your eyeeesss', hard left and right. Majestic, drawn-out solos for the win! Wishbone Ash is a superb, underrated band.
