What has touched me reaching deep?
Piercing my ensorcelled sleep
Darkling lady do you weep?
What is the cause of your grieving
Why do tears of balm and bane
Bathe my heart in bitter rain
What is this longing? Why this pain?
What is this spell you are weaving
Sunlight singer, morning's peer
How I long for what I fear
Not by my will are you hear
How I wish I could free you
Gladly in your arms I'd lie
But I dare not come you nigh
For if you touch me I shall die
If I were wise I would flee you
Shadow dancer, dark and fair
Lady that I love too well
Won't you free me from the spell
That you have cast around me
Star-eyed maid beyond compare
Mists of twilight in your hair
Why must you be so sweet and fair
How is it that you have bound me
In your eyes your soul lies bare
Hope is mingled with despair
Sun-moon lover do I dare
Trust my heart till keeping
Sunrise means that I must flee
Moonrise steels your soul from me
Nothing behind us but agony
Nothing before us but weeping
Sun and Shadow, dark and light
Child of day and child of night
Who can set our tale aright?
Is there no future but sorrow...
Will some power hear our plea
Take the curse from you and me
Grant is peace or set is free
Dare we to hope for tomorrow?
Is there no future but sorrow?
