about

A ballad in 7:8 time. From "Eyes of the Overworld".

lyrics

a dark-eyed lass, forlorn enchantress,
dwells on the Cape of Sad Remembrance,
waits at night on a lonely beach,
for that which comes in from the sea
her lover’s gone and he won’t return
while the sea still stirs and the sun still burns
the flowers that once seemed so sweet
are dust beneath her feet

dance, children dance dance, to the rhythm of the sea
dance, children dance dance, while you are young and free

a long lost lad on a lonely beach
does not move and does not speak
he cannot turn his sightless eyes
away from the empty skies
his time is done, he won’t return
while the sea still stirs and the sun still burns
he whispers soft his lover’s name
and does not speak again

dance, children dance dance, to the rhythm of the sea
dance, children dance dance, while you are young and free


the flower girls of far Kauchique
dance a dance of such sultry heat
and sing such songs as might give birth
to a broken heart on an empty earth


a dark-eyed lass, forlorn enchantress,
dwells on the Cape of Sad Remembrance,
waits at night on a lonely beach,
for that which comes in from the sea
her lover’s gone and he won’t return
while the sea still stirs and the sun still burns
the flowers that once seemed so sweet
are dust beneath her feet

so dance, children dance dance
