  • Cartouche

    If I share this with you never speak a word
    They would never understand if they ever heard
    Gemini, Capricorn, rising in the east
    Dancing through the witchwood we began to sing...

    In between dark and light in the underworld
    Wrapped around your finger like a string of pearls
    Smiling face, empty hand, 7 golden rings
    Dancing through the starlight we began to sing...

    Ahh, still I hear the whisper..."Cartouche"...

    Caramel colored leaves spiral in the air
    Diving right into the ground 'round the winding stair
    Stories carved out of wood, jester and the king
    Dancing through the moonlight, we began to sing

    Ahh, still I hear the whisper..."Cartouche"...

    Memories, black and white, hide behind the glass
    In the mirrors and the smoke, its all fading fast
    Written word, turn the card winter into spring
    Dancing through the witchwood we began to sing...

    Ahh,Ahh, still I hear the whisper..."Cartouche"... Writer/s: CANDICE NIGHT, RITCHIE BLACKMORE
