Breathe – Reprise

Home, home againI like to be there when I canWhen I come in cold and tiredIt’s good to warm my bones beside the fireFar away across the fieldThe tolling of the iron bellCalls the faithful to their kneesTo hear the softly spoken magic spells.

Bridges burning gladly,Merging with the shadows,Flickering between the lines.Stolen moments floating softly on the air,Born on wings of fire and climbing higher.Ancient bonds are breaking,Moving on and changing sides.Dreaming of a new day,Cast aside the other way.Magic visions stirring,Kindled by and burning flames rise in her eyes.The door stands ajar,The […]
