Can’t Keep The Forest From Me

about

Cold Iron and fey folk don’t mix. Between that and the solitude if you’re the last of your kind stuck on Earth, it’s enough to drive anyone a little mad.

lyrics

Can't keep the forest from me
Even in this steel city
Old dreams were stolen from thee
Can't seem to feel much pity

One by one the legends fade
Can't face this world that you have made
Where iron rules with an painful sting
And there's no place left for me to sing

Count the bells till Twilight
When the world is In between
And my forest starts to rustle
As it paints the city green
And the ivy grows so quick to tear
Your city to the ground
By morning you will be surprised
To see your city bound

Can't keep the forest from me
Even in this steel city
Old dreams were stolen from thee
Can't seem to feel much pity

One by one the legends fade
Can't face this world that you have made
Where iron rules with an painful sting
And there's no place left for me to sing

I stayed because you loved me once
When my kin had all but gone
I watched the world around me
Turn empty, cold, and wrong
And my heart is done pretending
That you'll turn this world around
So I who am the last to leave
Will tear your city down

Can't keep the forest from me
Even in this steel city
Old dreams were stolen from thee
Can't seem to feel much pity now
