Mark Knopfler - A Night In Summer Long Ago

my lady may I have this dance

forgive a knight who knows no shame

my lady may I have this dance

and lady may I know your name

you danced upon a soldier`s arm

and I felt the blade of love so keen

and when you smiled you did me harm

and I was drawn to you, my queen

now these boots may take me where they will

though they may never shine like his

there is no knight I would not kill

to have my lady`s hand to kiss

yes and they did take me through the hall

to leave me not one breath from you

and they fell silent one and all

and you could see my heart was true

then I did lead you from the hall

and we did ride upon the hill

away beyond the city wall

and sure you are my lady still

a night in summer long ago

the stars were falling from the sky

and still, my heart, I have to know

why do you love me, lady, why ?
