lyrics

NIGHTINGALE (A Nightingale)

I have heard you sigh with love and grief --
A willowisp, your breath is wandering palely in the eaves.

I have seen his heart weighed down with weeds,
With strangled love for her who holds the cards and all the keys.

He is not for you, it’s not to be. He isn’t free.
The path to him is fraught, he isn’t free.

oooooo

Tangled is the web we tend to weave,
The lovely, gilded, longing lies we make ourselves believe.

He’d love you well if only he were free; he isn’t free.
The path is clogged with thorns, it’s not to be.
His heart’s not free.
