lyrics

Snow falling in a cold breeze
Crow calls and colored leaves in old churchyards
With willows weeping forever carved in the stone
And what we see is ever leaving,
Distant music and ancient evenings have passed on

And the poets of romance are gone
But I’ve got a haunted feeling, sets my emotions reeling
And I try to write it down.

Empty windows in crumbling walls
And ivy-covered great-halls, and shadows
Moving slowly along the edges and waft across the floor
The scent of rose and old lavender
And if I look fast I might see her… or nevermore.

And just like the poets before
I’ve got a haunted feeling, sets my emotions reeling
And I try to write it down.

And I think of old sailing ships,
Heaving waves as the railing dips, and courage
Through the long night and the beating of the gale
And weathered lines on their faces
And the vasty open spaces of their lives

To see it all through their eyes
I’ve got a haunted feeling that sets my emotions reeling
And I try to write it down… try to write it down.
