Lyrics

Last Cup of Love
(c) 2011 Kristina Stykos/BMI/Horse Thief Publishing

I’m on the fly
I got the need to do it
Riding to Cheticamp tonight
Ahead of the rain
Up where the sand road disappears,
Out where the ocean’s a’crashing
Where the old ones are buried
With their crosses and their ashes

It’s a tired rugged road
And a flagon for the asking
It’s a hearth filled with coals
And a heart everlasting
It’s the rough hand of fate
That’s dealt without warning
It’s the last cup of love
And your smile in the morning

We laughed among the flowers
On the last day of September
The coastal sweeps were all abloom
That day – I still remember
We took the path above the cove
As golden day was dying
And in the hollow glowing grass
Released ourselves to kindness

It’s a tired rugged road
And a flagon for the asking
It’s a hearth filled with coals
And a heart everlasting
It’s the rough hand of fate
That’s dealt without warning
It’s the last cup of love
And your smile in the morning

Now in the sky
Open like kites to the breezes
Winged loves cry
And in my heart, I receive them
Now in the first drops of water
Under my God’s darkest cloud
I will raise my self unbroken and
Call your name out loud

It’s a tired rugged road
And a flagon for the asking
It’s a hearth filled with coals
And a heart everlasting
It’s the rough hand of fate
That’s dealt without warning
It’s the last cup of love
And your smile in the morning
