Herd - From The Underworld
(K. Howard; A. Blaikley)
Fontana 267 745 TF

Out of the land of shadows and
Darkness, we were returning
Towards the morning light

Almost in reach of places I knew
Escaping the ghosts of yesterday

You were behind me following closely
"Don't turn around now"
I heard you whisper in my ear

"If you should turn now
All that you won
Will vanish just like a passing dream"

Just on the very verge of the morning
Daylight was dawning
Freedom was but a step away

Now with the deep dark river behind us
What could go wrong if I stayed
Strong in mind?

What was the sudden lapse into madness?
What was the urge that
Turned my head around to look at you?

What was the stubborn will to destroy
The love and the joy I nearly held?

Three times the thunder roared in my ears
In all of my years I'll see that lost look in your eyes

As, with a sigh like smoke in the wind
You slipped from my grasp into the waiting shadows

So much I longed to say
But my touch found only the
Empty air and a black nights coldness

Into another world you entered
And never again I can reclaim you
