Subject: ADD: Where Are You (Tonight I Wonder) (Stewart)
The lyrics posted above are a pretty good transcription of the Karan Casey recording, but a bit far from those on the Andy M. Stewart recording. Here's what I hear:
WHERE ARE YOU (TONIGHT I WONDER?)
(Andy M. Stewart)
Where are you tonight I wonder?
And where will you be tonight when I cry?
Will sleep for you come easy, though I alone can't slumber?
Will you welcome in the morning at another man's side?
How easy for you the years slipped under
And left me a shadow the sun can't dispel;
I built for you a tower of love and admiration,
I set you so high I could not reach myself.
I look through my window at a world filled with strangers,
The face in my mirror is the one face I know;
You have taken all that's in me, so my heart is in no danger
My heart is in no danger, but I'd still like to know.
If there is a silence that can't be broken,
If there be a pure heart, to her I will go;
And time will work its healing and the spirit will grow stronger,
But in the meantime I'd still like to know.
from the Dublin Lady album
