No. 18 - Song - Adele - "Give Me Love"

MIDI File

Adele: Sun-down and dark, and over me the spell of shadow-land
As in my thoughts, dear love, in fond farewell I take your hand.
The world tomorrow offers as its prize
To call my own.
Rank, riches, all that women idolize
Save love alone.
O world of greed and gold
What do I care
For all thy wealth untold,
Thy treasures rare?
One gift I covet still
All gifts above
Take from me what you will,
But leave me love.

  Greyness of dawn once more, and gold of noon on hills and dells;
Then there shall sound upon the air too soon my marriage bells
Yet all the years to come of pride and pow'r
and splendour's blaze
How gladly would I yield for one sweet hour
Of bygone days.
O world of greed and gold
What do I care
For all thy wealth untold,
Thy treasures rare?
One gift I covet still
All gifts above
Take from me what you will,
But love. Ah!
