LOREENA MCKENNITT lyrics : "stolen child"

Where dips the rocky highland
Of sleuth wood in the lake
There lies a leafy island

Where flapping herons wake
The drowsy water rats
There we've hid our fairy vats

Full of berries
And of reddest stolen cherries.



CHORUS


Come away oh human child
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand

For the world's more full of weeping
Than you can understand



Where the wave of moonlight glosses
The dim grey sands with light

By far off furthest rosses
We foot it all the night
Weaving olden dances

Mingling hands and mingling glances
Till the moon has taken flight
To and fro we leap

And chase the frothy bubbles
Whilst the world is full of troubles
And is anxious in its sleep.



CHORUS


Where the wandering water gushes
From the hills above glen car

In pools among the rushes
That scarce could bathe a star
We seek for slumbering trout

And whispering in their ears
Give them unquiet dreams
Leaning softly out

From ferns that drop their tears
Over the young streams



CHORUS


Away with us he's going
The solemned eyed
He'll hear no more the lowing

Of the calves on the warm hillside
Or the kettle on the hob
Sing peace unto his breast

Or see the brown mice bob
Round and round the oatmeal chest.



CHORUS


For he comes, the human child
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand

For the world's more full of weeping
Than you can understand.
