lyrics

Ceridwen's Lament

Words by Andonis Violaris
Music by Adam Violaris

(In English & Anglo-Saxon)

To midre nihte
By night they came...

Blood royal and free
We were young then
Ever so young

Distant cries drawing close
The terror of nightmares
Coming close, closer
The drums were beating
Saw the foe coming closer
Closer, closer, closer, closer
(Female chorus): Run away, run away, run away, run away

Great longships of oak
Took you from me
Out of my arms
Sailed with the tide
Out to the sun
You won’t return
‘Though you promised me you’d come back
I still hear you calling me
I can hear you still

Horned beasts took my pride
(Female chorus): Edhoæ forlegen brecan
But not my heart
Not my heart
(Female chorus): By night they came

Distant ghosts coming back
The terror of nightmares
Feel you close, closer
Our hearts are beating
Feel your body draw closer

Stay with me, stay with me,
Stay with me, stay with me
(Female chorus): Closer, closer, closer, closer

Wind touching my cheek
Kissed by the moon
Touched by the stars
Warmed by the sun
While you’re not here
And far away, without me or love
You’re not free without Danegeld
But just know that I love you still

Great longships of oak
Took you from me
Out of my arms
Sailed with the tide
Out to the sun
You won’t return
‘Though you promised me you’d come back
I still hear you calling me
I can hear you still
