If I Die Somehow

(song of lament)

 

Shall I find a tree

For to hang beneath

Tell me lover please

Shall I find a tree

From the highest bough

Shall I hang there now

Will I find your arms

If I die somehow

 

For my aching soul

Longs to be with you

Will I see you there

When this life is through

 

Will you sleep with me

In eternity

Oh my dearest love

Will you sleep with me

Can I touch your face

Feel your warm embrace

If we met someplace

Could I touch your face

 

For my aching soul

Longs to be with you

Will I see you there

When this life is through

 

In a far-off land

Would you understand

Hold my trembling hand

In that far-off land

O’ I am not so sure

To which heaven’s door

I will find my cure

I am not so sure

 

For my aching soul

Longs to be with you

Will I see you there

When this life is through

 

Shall I find a tree

For to hang beneath

Tell me lover please

Shall I find a tree

From the highest bough

Shall I hang there now

Will I find your arms

If I die somehow
