lyrics

Wiccan Faire

Words by Andonis Violaris
Music by Adam Violaris & Eleni Violaris

The faire was loud and bustling
As people milled around
The faire was for the Wiccan
At the stones of Salisbury Down

He rode his horse into the faire
So handsome young and proud
She knew he was a highwayman
And smiled and sighed aloud

He stopped to buy her garland ware
His dark eyes held her stare
His voice was warm and tender
That day at Wiccan Faire

His charm and words beguiled her
His hands caressed her hair
His touch was soft and tender
His smile beyond compare

She thanked him for his custom
He thanked her for her ware
He bent and kissed her trembling lips
That day at Wiccan Faire
He spurred his horse to ride away
Her eyes welled in despair
He promised to return one day
Return to Wiccan Faire

‘Though years went by and age crept on
The memory remained
Of the horseman and the promise made
To return to her one day

She wondered what became of him
Not knowing was her pain
Her heart was broken people said
And why she stayed a maid

She waited for her highwayman
‘Til hammer, nail and saw
Brought sounds of gallows rising high
That broke her heart once more

The crowd was cruel and baying
Except for one who cared
When he went by she called to him
Remember Wiccan Faire

He remembered how she smiled at him
And how he’d touched her hair
And how he kissed her trembling lips
That day at Wiccan Faire

She saw the garland on his belt
He kept from long ago
‘Though withered flowers entwined the hide
His love like hers did grow

He kissed her eager lips again
Bound hands caressed her hair
The way they had those years ago
That day at Wiccan Faire

She walked with him and as she wept
He asked her for her name
He asked her to forgive his deeds
And all the years of pain

She held on to his body close
Not wanting to let go
Until they pulled her from his grasp
Whilst praying for his soul
He climbed to meet his destiny
He thanked her for her prayer
He smiled at her for one last time
As he did at Wiccan Faire

He smiled at her for one last time
As he did at Wiccan Faire
As he did at Wiccan Faire
