Royal Green

“Royal Green”
words and music by Lady Isadora

“Come take my hand
And close your eyes
I will take you far
Beyond the skies
And if he has shown you
What is love
I will show you what
Is far above!”

“You are the strangest man
I’ve ever known
Like some lost soul encountered
In the darkness alone
In your hands there is Heaven
In your eyes there is Hell
And I want to go with you
But I fear to as well!”

“There’s not a lady
In my hall
Who can take my thoughts
From you at all
Nor one so fit to be my queen
Nor one so fair
In the royal green”

“Must I then darken
My fair hair
For fear I find no favor there?
For if I look well
In the royal green
There are those who would see it
On a darker queen”

“For you to darken
That fair sight
Were to hide the Sun
in the gloom of night
As for any who would dare
Speak harm to my wife
He shall answer for it
With his life!”

“How can I gainsay you
Who are to me
All depth, all silence, all mystery?
For Heaven’s gold fire
Seems to me meagre show
When the secrets of Hell
Are mine to know!”

“One moment you stood there
Awaiting your crown
The next you had vanished
Without sight or sound
My lady, my wife
Where have you gone?
Without you beside me
How can I go on?”

“You seek me in vain
Our dream is done
My eyes that adored you
Are blind with the Sun
Your crown and your love
Are lost to me
Just go away
And let me be
Let me be...”
