Black the sky, a clap of thunder
And blue the wind, bruising the air
Stark the mood, a monochrome setting,
A winter chill, waiting for spring

Now fair she goes, taken in by a traveller
And lovers weeds started to twine
Their hearts burned bright, lighting up the daybreak
Melting frosted time

"You will be my lady, and I will be your man,"
He said: "No-one could replace you, no other in this land"

For a year and a day, with each other they had pleasure
Until the roads he had trod started to call
"Alas my love, my time is never-lasting,
And in the morning light, I'll be gone"

"But I was to be your lady, this is what we planned
You said no-one or nothing in this whole, damn land
Could take away my man!"

She said: "You can never leave me,
I'll raise my ravens to the sky,
Oh my blood will run black with the death of all good things,
If you, my love, take flight!"

"And I will always be your lady
With you always at my side
If I sink you into this cold, black earth
Our love will never die"
