YOU PROMISED ME

You promised me and you said a lie to me,
that you'd be before me where the sheep are flocked but you lied to me,
I gave a whistle and three hundred cries to you, you promised
and I found nothing - nothing - nothing but a bleating lamb.

You promised me a thing that was hard for you,
a ship of gold under a siver mast but that was hard for you,
twelve - twelve towns with a market in all of them, but that was hard
and a fine white court by the side of the sea.

You have taken the east from me; you have taken the west from me;
you have taken what is before me and what is behind me;
you have taken the moon, you have taken the sun from me;
and my fear is great  you have taken it all from me;
you have taken my moon, you have taken my sun ;
you have taken the east and the west - you have taken it all from me !
you took what's before me, what's behind me;
and my fear is great you have taken all from me !

You promised me a thing that is not possible,
that you would give me gloves of the skin of a fish but it was not possible;
you lied that you would give me shoes of the skin of a bird but it is not possible
and a suit of the dearest - the dearest silk but you lied !
you promised it but you lied to me - you promised but you lied!

My heart is as black as the blackness of the sloe,
or as the black coal that is on the smith’s forge;
or as the sole of a shoe left in white halls;
it was you - it was you put that darkness over me;
it was you - it was you put that over me!

You have taken the east from me; you have taken the west from me;
you have taken what is before me and what is behind me;
you have taken the moon, you have taken the sun from me;
and my fear is great  you have taken it all from me!
you have taken my moon, you have taken my sun!
you have taken the east and the west - you have taken it all from me!
you took what's before me, what's behind me;
and my fear is great you have taken all from me!
