about

A fairy-tale based very loosely on the poem "An Echo From Willowood" By Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The line "O ye, all ye that walk on Willowood" is taken directly from the poem

This is about a magical place, The Willowood, where unappeased souls live, this world is right under our feet. This song is about a person trying to find their love who is stuck in the Willowood

lyrics

My love, oh my love she lies in the Willowood

Ive been lighting a candle every night
Hoping she'll come back to me, come back to me
In my wake she is six feet under
In my dreams she pulls me, pulls me down
To a bed of soil, where we won't be found

O ye, all ye that walk in the Willowood
Take me, oh take me there

I yearn to feel her spirit
It wanders there through the leaves
She brings the changes of the season
But not in rest, her soul is unappeased

Her voice it finds me there
Haunts me in the woods
She hunts me, oh she haunts me

O ye, all ye that walk in the Willowood
Take me, oh take me there

Dark horse I ride through the debris of Fall
Fall into secret streams
Our eyes have never seen
Worlds I didn't know existed, right under my feet
There it lies, the Willowood

O ye, all ye that walk in the Willowood
Take me, oh take me there

My love she's there, in the Willowood
Her spirit alive though her body has taken to eternal sleep
A kiss escaped from my lips, when she finds me
She will take me down to the Willowood
A kiss escaped from my lips, when she finds me
She will take me down to the Willowood

O ye, all ye that walk in the Willowood
Take me, oh take me there

Take me there, oh take me there
