This is the story of why, friend,
and how I died
or how I came to be
what I once feared

…what I once feared…

Bewitched by spells, spells yet uncast
right lied the present, left the past
I burnt the fire, I froze the ice
I walked with vermin, rats and mice

I swam the lakes and flew the skies
fed fruits to hungry butterflies
inflamed the Witch’s shining eyes
they shone bright stars of worlds divine

In this forest I’ll die
In this forest I’ll die
I don’t know how
Please tell me how
I don’t know why
Please tell me why
Why I’m here

Where the tongueless speaks
the blind one sees
what you and I ignored
in shades of fear

Feels like a dream tonight:
Her smile, Her eyes, Her love

Lo, a beauty immense
She sleeps in my arms
beseeching my touch,
my fondling caress

Feels like a dream tonight:
Lo, a beauty immense Her smile,
She sleeps in my arms,
Her eyes beseeching my touch;
Her love, my fondling caress

In this forest lie
birds who cannot fly
yet they touched no ground
as they danced around by my side
and sung notes which were yet unsung

“Now lost I wander—Find me!
Why won’t you—Find me! Find me!
forgive me now, my Love!”

In this forest I’m lost
the creatures I call
they always hide

…except them mockingbirds, evoking…
…Her smile
…Her eyes
…Her stars
…Her flame
…Her love

In this forest I died
In this forest I died
I don’t know when
It’s been too long
But I know why
I know this time
It was me!

Now, the memories rise
The bodiless burns
The heartless loves and hurts
the mindless learns
The blinded sees the truth
Nonplussed the Witch, She lied…

I know this time, I know this time
I know this time, I know this time
I know this time, I know this time

It was me!

In this forest fly
countless butterflies
yet they made no sound
as they wept and cried by my side
and shed tears which were yet unshed

I wrote the words that broke my spell
I scrib’d them wrong, I could not tell
I froze the fire, I burnt the ice
I killed the flame inside Her eyes!

Still dreaming of my Witch’s kiss
which sealed the spell and brought us bliss
once woken up, daymare begins
those cursed words, they broke Her wings

Retrembling the fears
recrying the tears
recalling the lies
repenting the words

And… now I know, I know…
…and I hear my Loved One’s cry
…deciding our trail of love
from bliss to suicide?

In this forest fly those who cannot die
yet we never breathe—yes I’m one of them
still in love we fall, and in end we hope
and we count the years

One, two, three, …

Bright was the present, dark’s the past
caressed a relic, not first, nor last
and in this heart of mine—Ah!
Her name still echoes:
