Winter’s Dreaming

from by Spiral Dance

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Step through the Sylvan Doorway into the realm of the Goddess and the Green Man, where the horned one walks the leaf-dappled pathways and bright Áine dances in the greenwood at Midsummer.
    Feel the spirit of the trees and hear the stones whisper in a land where the Fae will sing you into another time and space.
    Come closer to the fire as the shadows lengthen and the beauty of the night surrounds you; dance to the tunes of your ancestors, hear the legend of Odin’s Wild Hunt and dark tales of immortal desire. And then remember the wise ones who have gone before.
    Spiral Dance bids you welcome.

about

A dark and sensual story of immortal love…

lyrics

I’ll tell to you a tale of a winter’s dreaming
A sad and dark tale of endless night without a dawn
When frost lay on bare branches
Beneath moonlight’s silver gleaming
And in the shifting shadows a cursed love was born
On the breath of velvet wings
Between night and waking
To feed an ancient hunger to the village he was bound
For a single candle flickered
When all should be sleeping
And through a frosty window pane
The sloe eyed one he found
In the moving candlelight
She knew that he was watching
A cold and pale stare that chilled her
To the very bone
For in his dark mind a sweet memory echoed
Of jeweled eyes and painted lips
A love he once had known
Come away come away come away
And take the night with me
Just one touch and I’ll go with you
Just one kiss and you’ll be mine
Just one taste and I’m bound to you
Until the end of time
So cold was his touch and deep was his thirsting
The rhythm of her danced in the hollow of his veins
And pulsing through her being
The need for him growing
A rush of life eternal when the taste of blood is wine
Caught within an earthly dream
With the bright moon’s staring
In the stillness borne of ages she gifted him with life
His was the song that was sung in the beginning
The need for sweet release in the blessing of the night
In the chill of the dawn
Did you hear the wild wolves calling?
You awakened from the dream
To know that he had flown
And now that the morning
And the grave has come between you
Too late the days returning and your heart lies all alone
For at the next moonrise she will make the journey
To satisfy the hunger and to leave this mortal plain
Down the corridor of darkness to where he is waiting
To the winter’s dreaming and the endless night again
