take away the load lyrics – sandy denny

i sit and wonder at the thought
that someday you’ll be going
at the same time i realize
i must not be afraid
you are the one i love
you are the one i touch
and it’s you who must not go
but it’s i who must try not
to send you away.

out of my door and along the path
where i have never travelled
could it be that you would help me
out along that road?
i only want your hand
i only want your smile
from you that is everything
from you that is all i need
to take away the load.
