Darkness

Album: Autumn Sky (2010)
  • Once upon a dark autumn night
    I was so very far from sleep
    I longed to walk beneath the stars
    Into the wood so dark and deep

    Neither myth nor fairy tale
    Could keep me from the path to the maze
    But eyes upon me I could feel
    Hidden in the shadows watching always

    Something in the darkness pulled me deeper
    Something in the madness eased my mind
    Was I awake or was I dreaming
    Cut the strings that bind me to mankind

    Once while I was sitting in my room
    One cold and silver winter's day
    I could hear another worldly call
    Try as I might I could'nt turn away

    Something in the darkness pulled me deeper
    Something in the madness eased my mind
    Was I awake or was I dreaming
    Cut the strings that bind me to mankind

    Somewhere in between the moss and the stone
    The wind and the wood became my home
    I layed myself down upon the green
    When the ivy overgrew I could never leave

    Something in the darkness pulled me deeper
    Something in the madness eased my mind
    Was I awake or was I dreaming
    Cut the strings that bind me to mankind

    Something in the darkness pulled me deeper
    Something in the madness eased my mind
    Was I awake or was I dreaming
    Cut the strings that bind me to mankind
