Lyrics

THE MAIDEN

Far I hear those bells and I wake up
My eyes now slowly leave a shadow behind

 

So strange, white voice
Seeking, calling, my voice

Man: ‘Stunning maiden, where’s my world?’
Maiden: ‘The horses are waiting to take us there
Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere

I’m so lost now, never been to this land

Where the silent mountains rise
Then I said I could endlessly love her, without knowing her name
She took my hand and slightly smiled
A castle in the chasm hides
Upon which the bright sun soon will set
But the steeds are fast

 

The seas are calling my name

They say: ‘Hey, hey, hey, why not just believe tonight?’
Come back, you, come back
If you vanish now, or make it last somehow

 

Maiden: ‘Out there there’s a dark realm we must beware not to enter’

Man: ‘I’m not scared now for some reason, and I could save us both from peril

Though I’ve never done so’

Late at night, in a place where hell meets the woods and the rain
Now you embrace me and I begin to believe in the things you said
As you turn softer as velvet
I sensed your worry
There was a question you asked me then I did not understand

Man: ‘I just never had to go anywhere, why should I now?
I’ll try once more to explain to you (look up) that nothing’s real here
It’s strange to find our way home tonight followed by storms’

Maiden: ‘Go now, they’ll hunt you down’

 

She hid me in a place amongst the hills

Where she dozed by the fire

‘Before daybreak go’ she said crying

I said that we would meet the coming day
I can’t recall the way home
Woke up in my room, feeling dazed and lost
