about

I adapted a poem by W.B Yeats (The Song of Wandering Aengus) and put it to music. Ta da!

lyrics

Out to the hazel wood he went
My lesson learnt
Because a fire was in his head
And I got burned

That's what you get, that's what you get
For loving a wandering soul
I'll grow old with no regrets at all

When he cuts and peels my heart
And hooks it out to dry
I won't think twice
I never really thought that he'd try

That's what you get, that's what you get
For loving a wandering soul
I'll grow old with no regrets at all

If I could be the glimmering girl in his dreams
When he wakes up will he remember me?

When the white moths on their wing
All the lights go flickering out
He'll throw his berry in the stream
And catch another girl to cry about

That's what you get, that's what you get
For loving a wandering soul
I'll grow old with no regrets at all

If I could be the glimmering girl in his dreams
When he wakes up will he remember me?

If I thought that he would stay
I would call him by his name
But my voice just fades away
And there's only me to blame

When he's old with wondering
He'll come and find me where I've gone
Kiss my lips and take my hand
Until time and times are done

And that's all I get, that's all I get
For loving a wandering soul
I'll grow old with no regrets at all
