lyrics

Here we hide
I’ll keep you safe
Until the snow melts away

You just rest
You need your strength
Folks’ll need you
When it comes your day

You know I love you
I always will
I cannot help myself
To love you is to be myself

Here we hide
I’ll keep you warm
Wait until the trees bloom again

You just sleep
Heal your wounds
Folks’ll need you
When dawn lights your way

You know I love you
I always will
I cannot help myself
To love you is to be myself

***

I hear the call of the land
her blood is quickening
rivers will run again their ways
their beds woken from frozen sleep

oh my darling what sacrifice
you’ve made for me to live
I will gain my strength and ride on forth
to reveal my bounty

and if I am not for eternity
at least for a time I may be –

oh my love, you look so pale,
while life bursts all around
All your strength gone to preserve the spark
Now so weak and wan

What a terrible sacrifice
You’ve made to see me through
I will make sure it was not in vain
For the land will live again soon!

And if I am not for eternity
At least for a time, I may be –

Free

***

Do you know the myth
Of the eternal return?

Recurring dreams of
Wyrd’s worldly workings

Round the circle
We do whirl

Round the spiral weaves
A story of turning love

Carries me away from you
And back again

Our love barely born
And death it strikes so sudden

But we will carry on
Around the Endless yew-tree column

The eternal dance
Of winter facing summer...
