​My Prime

This song is by Dudley Saunders and appears on the album Restore (1996).

When I was in my prime
I flourished like a vine
I came upon a false young man
Who stole the heart of mine

In June the red rose bloomed
That's not the flower for me
For I would pluck that red rose off
And plant me a willow tree

And that willow tree shall weep
And that willow tree shall whine
I wish I was in that young man's arms
Who stole the heart of mine

If I'm spared for one year more
And God should grant me grace
I'll weep a bowl of crystal tears
To wash his deceitful face
