about

Grief can bring a kind of insanity, this is a charm against it.

lyrics

Oh Children,
in the light of the dawn,
I saw your mother,
she'd come and gone.
She'd come and gone,
come and gone.

Oh Children in the light of the dawn,
I saw your mother she'd come and gone.
Come and gone,
come and gone.

She'd taken the form of a big black crow,
and I watched her shadow skim the snow.
Skim the snow,
skim the snow.

Now I sit and wait,
with the cold, cold moon,
on a mountain high,
on a mountain high.
I still wait and watch for her,
to cross the sky,
to cross the sky,
to cross the sky.

Oh Father Time make me a knave.
I'll take that mornin' to my grave.
Oh my sons, raise your voice,
call your mother back to her boys.
The wound is clean but the wound is deep.
The wound is clean but the wound is deep.

And I just can't find a way,
and I just can't find a way,
and I just can't find a way,
to begin to heal... line repeats

When I dream, and I awake,
when I dream and I awake,
I feel black feathers on my face.
