Crinan Wood

It was cold, you had your hands inside your sleeves

As we walked I heard the laughter in the leaves

See the shadows lying now where once we stood

And I would lie down right there if only I could

The music came to me, it came across the sound

And you laughed and shown and danced a circle around

As we walked away, I saw a shadow on the ground

There were stones inside my pockets that I found

When I was younger I heard angels on the roof

As thousand voices singing, each one was the truth

Well a wise young lad, I left them in my youth

And I have only just my memory for proof

See a doorway open on a darker road

Out in the garden, thread lies broken on the loom

See a face that's smiling, quick around the wall

And in the distance, mountains waiting for the fall

See these knots around my hands, around my feet

They would take me down my end for me to meet

I grow weary of this struggle and this fight

The morning's so far off from out here in the night

The night is cold and you must leave me, this I know

And empty all the places where we used to go

Before I knew you I went climbing in the snow

Called your name out to the darkness down below
