Track 2 on my album "HEARTSONG OF THE PHOENIX"

lyrics

"WILDSEAHORSE" by NIAMH O BRIEN RHIANNON

He moved so softly, he skimmed the air
And he had the brightest eyes and the darkest hair
He reached his hands out to me, gently I took them so easily
Not a word was spoken between him and I
But I felt something new blowing by
A strange wind from a hot, hot land
And he smiled and said, “Come, take my hand, take my hand”

*Chorus

Butterfly change beating his wing
Against my breast as my body begins to sing
With colours I never knew before
I move like water…shining on the dance floor
I move like water….

He placed a ring of shells upon my hand
Whiter than the African sand
Two children then came into my mind
They were lands apart, but they still could find…
The path to be…
To be together, to be free…
To dance as lovers…
For a time you were mine…

You made your promises to me
The love I gave you was complete
But world’s apart, Different ways
Came to part us… on a June Summer’s Day…

A tiny Sea Horse held my Heart
As my Soul was Torn and Tossed
And the Waves Drenched me
As I Dived Beneath…
To Turquoise Blue…
Swimming Back to Myself…Without you… x 3
