  1. Darkness Falls

From the recording Darkness Falls

Lyrics

Darkness falls and I’m all alone
Sound the tolling bell; roll the casting bones
Hear the heron call and the branches moan
Darkness falls

Chasing time, that elusive thief
Thought we’d ordered hope, but I dined on grief
And the acrid wine offered no relief
Chasing time

Can’t believe that you slipped away
Leaving sudden but slow
There’s no reason, no blame, and no answer
For why the world let you go

When I wake will I see anew
That the hours still pass like they used to do
Or will bindings break; knock the world askew
When I wake

Can’t believe that you slipped away
Leaving sudden but slow
There’s no reason, no blame, and no answer
For why the world let you go

Can’t believe that you slipped away
Leaving sudden but slow
There’s no reason, no blame, and no answer
For why the world let you go

Darkness falls and I’m all alone
Sound the tolling bell; roll the casting bones
Hear the heron call and the branches moan
Darkness falls
