The elf by Al Stewart


I sat upon the Evening Hill The shadows set, the night grew still And as I sat, guitar on knee A voice of flowers called to meSing, sing to me your song Sing, for I belong to the night In the grey morning lightI'll be goneI turned with eyes that strained for sight And there amid the failing light Dimly saw a figure small Heard a voice of magic callSing, sing to me your song Sing, for I belong to the night In the grey morning lightI'll be goneMy fumbling fingers found the chords My trembling lips fought for the words I stopped to ask the stranger how He softly said, no questions nowBut sing, sing to me your song Sing, for I belong to the night In the grey morning lightI'll be goneThen with the magic of the elves My fingers danced among themselves A heart with lightness thus endowed Formed melodies I know not howSong, played the whole night long Thus he danced and clapped through the night And with grey morning light he was goneNow whispering wind plays o'er the hill And the evening sounds again grow still A year or more has passed since then Oh, he will not pass my way againAnd so I sing, sing to you my song Sing, for I belong to the night In the grey morning lightI'll be gone So I sing, sing to you my song Sing, for I belong to the nightIn the grey morning light I'll be gone
