The Shadow Of The Mountain



Last night I dreamed again that I was by your side
I felt your tender kiss, and with your lips on mine
My world became, complete again
Beneath the shadow of the mountain, we were lovers till the dawn
Was on the sea;

But with the morning sun the dream had disappeared
And I awoke and still believed that you were here
But soon the day will come again, beneath the shadow of the mountain
I'll be with you when my soldier's work is done;

When the summer winds begin to blow
That is when I will be sailing to my home
To the olive trees and the golden corn
That whispers in the fields up in the hills beyond the place
Where I was born;

And here in Rome the talk is all about the war
As men of Caesar we have heard those words before
And though I'm strong, my heart belongs
Beneath the shadow of the mountain and my lover who is waiting
There for me;

When the summer winds begin to blow
That is when you'll see the sails that bring me home
To the olive trees and the golden corn
That whispers in the fields up in the hills above Pompeii
Where I was born;
I will return;
Beneath the shadow of Vesuvius we'll be together till the day we die.....
Last night I dreamed again that I was by your side.......
