Shall I Fall

S: The smell of peat (and)
misty veils obscure
this darkened place, our home
my hands are sore
my life spent in toil
had to care for you
since you were born

B: But hear this voice
mother's calling us
promising tenderness and warmth
oh, sister come
can't you hear her moan
she's out there in the fen

S: Shall I fall, shall I fall, shall I fall for you
Shall I fall, shall I fall, shall I follow you

B: This flickering sound
is guiding us
to our mother's lap behind these veils
oh, sister please
leave all that grind
let this song induce you to the light

S: It's an illusion,
no guiding light
our mother's dead and gone, we're all alone
my brother see
this twinkling shine
is a perfidious black butterfly

B: Shall I fall, shall I fall, shall I fall for you
Shall I fall, shall I fall, shall I follow you

S: My love don't go
stay right by my side
in my arms you shall sleep becalmed

B: oh, sister please
I'm drained and freezing,
the voice out there will care for us

B: There's no more fear,
no more pain
in mother's embrace myself entrust

S: Don't leave me now
my little love
in the clutches
of the black butterfly

S B: Shall I fall, shall I fall, shall I fall for you
Shall I fall, shall I fall, shall I follow you
