Alas My Love by dc Talk

© 1995. Written by Kevin Max Smith


Alas my love, you say goodbye
Wipe the poison from my brow
Alas my love, this guilty night
It gives me up like a foster child
And in this moment I take my vow
These angels sleeping at my feet
And in this moment you do not know how
How my spirit wants to flee

You see it was one man against the night
Taking on a multitude
That had left Him high and dry
No candle burning vigil could light the way
Darkness hit the ground like a fallen satellite
He wrestled until morning
With human souls and dark angels
And there He finished His work
On the third day

Live Versions

The song served as the intro to The Hardway in the Freakshow tour, and even pieces of the Solo Tour. A version of Greensleeves, also called "Alas my Love", was performed during the Supernatural Experience tours.
