lyrics

Walk with me beside the twisted branches
By seed and root, Dark Mother take me in
You, who knows the secrets of my heart you kiss me softly as the mist rolls in.
I adore thee, to the end.
Speak with me beyond this fragile veil
I smell sandalwood and orange peel
You, who's blood is running through my veins
I'll never miss you on this day of wane.
I adore thee, to the end.
The night has called us
He rides into the marshes
May you guide us and protect us
The time of death is here.
Summer's ending, shadows lengthen
Black bird, come home.
Leaves are falling 'round us winter is upon us
We shall survive these fears of reconciling.
The night has called us
He rides into the marshes
May you guide us and protect us
The time of death is here.
The night has called us
He rides into the marshes
May you guide us and protect us It turns again, the Wheel of the Year.
