lyrics

She walked me out in the old oak wood / something inside of her said that she should conjure up gifts all bundled in twine…
I was once told that it might be divine
She said it was just and old tattered shawl / as she covered her head
I knew that wasn’t all / with colors rich and woven so fine…
I was once told that it might be divine
The fire burned low in the cool evening air / she looked at me as I touched her hair / she started to weep and I followed in kind…
I was once told that it might be divine
Winds of seven seas / move my frailties like trees
Clay and fire – in his hands they were blessed / and soon there was drawn a sweet arabesque / with flowers and leaves and patterns of vine…
I was once told that it might be divine
How deep runs the spring, this no one can tell / how deep, how deep is the holy well? / the water was cool and tasted like wine…
I was once told that it might be divine
Oh, I’ll take you there / to breathe the autumn air / you won’t break, I swear
Down to shore and down to the sea / and down to the depths of the troubled me / washed by the waves and baptized in brine…
I was once told that it might be divine
