lyrics

"RISING FROM THE ASHES" by Niamh O Brien Rhiannon


Round and Round inside my head
Like a flame…your name flickers in the candlelight
Keeping me awake tonight…burning…
Wondering where you are and who you’re with?
Outside the lights around the bay hang like a necklace
That hugs the land and boats are sailing in…

I remember the touch of your hand
But where do we go from here?
Does the night descend and do you disappear…?
I pace the room and speak your name
Wide awake and watching…
Don’t want to sleep alone ‘neath a half moon without you…
What in the world must I do now?
What web have you spun?
I’m wrapped in your threads
Bound by your voice and your soft caress
I long to swim the whole night through
Wrapped inside of you….

But the night is long and the embers glow
And deep down I think I know…
That when the candle flickers out
The curling smoke will fill the room
And beyond the shadow of the flame
Your image appearing will soothe the pain
And the Flame in me burns on…

What in the world must I do now?
What web have you spun?

Round and round inside my mind…your name…
Mythical Bird Born of Sacred Flame…
Keeping me awake …Burning…
Keeping me awake…..Burning…
Burning …
Burning…
Burning…
