Of Mortals and Men

If tree tops whispered
Secrets and tales
Of fairies and whales
And endless days
I would find a way
To live there every day
And forever will I stay

If clouds of rain
Can defuse the pain
And unshackle the chains
May it rain forever
May it rain on my face
As I run this race
Forever being chased

In the woods, I belong
Where nothing is wrong
And I can sing out my song
Where magic is real
And I finally can feel
My soul begins to heal
Where I made the deal

Fog creeps in from above
And I see you standing there
With your golden hair
As magical as you are fair

I found the leak
That the order seeks
It’s where you came to be
The creature I now see
