Witch Lyrics

10. Witch (8:51)
I wandered through alien forests
Beneath the great eye of the night
Far from my camp and my army
Like ash to wind, I took flight
Drawn by the voice of a maiden
Hanging in the frozen air
I was caught in winter's grasp
transfixed by her stare

Her flesh was pale like a lily in moonlight
Eyes soft gray of the tumultuous sea
Hair pitch black like a raven in the night
Ethereal visage made for me
She promised me a myriad of wonders
An end to endless strife
She would trade the unfathomable
For my wretched life

Wrap me in oblivion, open your doors to me

I have heard you call to me, in the dead of night
When my lips have failed me, when I've lost my sight
I damn the dreams of yesterday to this barren land
This witch in the winter take me by the hand

Try as I might to remember
The names of those I held dear
Their hands in the dark I could not find
Their voices, I could not hear
For there she was before me
Naked starlight on the snow
And there I took her in my arms
And she cast aside my woe

This river is eternal
I long for the shore

Icy death submits to me
Earth gives way to celestial seas
A realm born from my flesh

Here I dwell by my lady's grace
Time dismissed without a trace
Bound to freedom alone

Life is but a frightful dream, death but a fear
How I long to awaken, beyond the bleak and drear
Sweet is the voice that beckons you to death
Soft are the hands that smother your last breath

I have heard you call to me, in the dead of night
When my hands have failed me, when I've lost my sight
You broke the chains of this life, which held me like a hound
Witch in the winter, Oh what is to be found?
I have heard you call to me, in the dead of night
When my lips have failed me, when I've lost my sight
I damn the dreams of yesterday to this barren land
Witch in the winter, take me by the hand
