lyrics

You’ve got a long way to come through these walls,
but I won’t cause you any harm
don’t you believe what you’ve heard, let them fall
and I won’t bring you any harm
give me my friend something sacred to hold,
cause I’ll never give you no harm
peace for to fight with and flame when it’s cold
I’ll keep you safe, and
I’ll never bring home the harm

I’ve got a face made from silver and stone
but I’ll never bring you no harm
Make us to one now and never alone
you’ll never see any harm
come now, I’ll cradle you, make you all mine
I’ll never hold you in harm
held in this silence, can I make you mine
I’ll keep you warm
and I’ll never send you the harm.

Every room empty
and every heart bare
make me all over again
all of my sisters might
meet me down there
make all over for them

We were all children once
forward to fear
and I held my hands to the harm
we could run carefully,
hide 'neath the trees,
but I’d never hurt you, no harm
find me back there in the
shade and the green
running away from the harm
captured in beauty
you radiant one
I’d hold you close and
I’d never bring you the harm

Every room empty
and every heart bare
make me all over again
all of my sisters might
meet me down there
make all over for them

I cannot cry now
but I can be with you in silence and sleep in this peace
I cannot face you
but I can be near you in silence and fortune and grace.

Every room empty
and every heart bare
make me all over again
all of my sisters might
meet me down there
make all over again
make me all over for them
make me all over and then.
