many moons ago… lyrics – empyrium

(where at night the wood grouse plays [1999])

a night of december so dark and cold,
i walked a path ages old
the moon amongst the clouds revealed
lightning valleys, forest and field

embraced by silence i wandered the moor
an endless landscape by my side
when in the mist i saw a light
dancing through the hazy night

i stood and watched the play in awe
was deeply touched by what i saw
i told my friends what i did see
and what they told did tremble me!

it’s said the ghost of a young, fair maid
is cursed to dwell beneath the shade
of the olden oak she died below
o that was many moons ago!
