about

The music is a folk arrangement of a classic piece by Maurice Ravel - Pavan for a Dead Princess.

lyrics

I forget the names of my children
Still I love them all because I carried them along
Through all the chambers of my life
And they carry on

Long before the end of their father
Came a greater lady who would carry me along
With all the chains around her life
Yet she carried on. She carries on.

Just give me peace.
Let me go on my way
And then you'll know.
One day you'll know.
Cause I'll just fly. So say goodbye.
Long may the wind be at your backs
As the moon illuminates your every step back home
As you find your own, you'll never be alone.

How I long to just be on my feet again
Carry you along just as you've held me through the years
And kept your deepest fears inside
Or so you tried. You never cried.

You can hold onto me for so long
Until I go, and then you'll know
To say goodbye, cause I'll just fly
Long may the wind be at your backs
As the moon illuminates your every step back home
As you find your own, you'll never be alone.
