Woman of the Mist

There be dragons in the highland’s heart
That mark you bear is a talon scar
That scabbard’s fallen from a hero’s fist
He fought beside you
Woman of the mist
Woman of the mist
Woman of the mist

Your eyes of bronze never gave a hint
Was your spirit broken like a blade of flint?
Will you take his amulet set with amethyst
And wear it proudly?
Woman of the mist
Woman of the mist
Woman of the mist

Your pain’s a prison, your fire’s a seed
Still you ride in beauty on a warrior’s steed
I pray for little, but I pray for this
May you find shelter
Woman of the mist
Woman of the mist
Woman of the mist

There’s a great stag standing on a mountain ledge
Where the full moon’s rising just above the ridge
Though your nights are empty and your days persist
He’ll come to find you
In the rain from heaven, in the high wind’s kiss
He’s always with you
Woman of the mist
Woman of the mist
Woman of the mist
