Lord and Lady
By: Greg Currie

Parodied from "Hallelujah" by Jeff Buckley / Leonard Cohen.
A beautiful version of the music can be heard at the YouTube version by Rufus Wainwright.
The original has five verses, I wrote three and debated writing two more. Sometimes short, is sweet. Perhaps I'll add another two verses at a later date. The original song was so beautiful and inspiring when I first hear it that I was moved to write the following verses.

 
I heard a secret in the woods
From people dressed in cloaks and hoods
Who said there's more to life than what's before you
To look above, to look below
To look within and then let go
To be caught in the arms of the Lord and Lady
Lord and Lady, Lord and Lady, Lord and Lady, Lord and Lady

I chased a truth, that got away
I mourned my loss by night and day
Until I finally realized it was with me
You can not chase what you have not lost
A sacred dream, a threshold crossed
I see you once again my Lord and Lady
Lord and Lady, Lord and Lady, Lord and Lady, Lord and Lady 
So now I walk but not alone
With wind and rain, sun and stone
The sun and moon are the beacons set to guide me
The sun shines out in the bright of day
And in the night the moon will say
I bathe you in the light of the Lord and Lady
Lord and Lady, Lord and Lady, Lord and Lady, Lord and Lady 
Lord and Lady, Lord and Lady, Lord and Lady, Lord and Lady
