lyrics

"Fair maid, why are you crying?
Why do you shed tears like blood in the snow?"
"I weep, for my children were stolen,
By one who loved me and won't let me go"
"Fair maid, what freedom was stolen?
You have at your fingertips all you desire."
"Blind sir, a cloak made of feathers,
Stolen from riverside, burned in a fire."

"A swan maid once was I
Born to touch the sky
But lacking wings I cannot fly
My cloak was burned before my eyes"

"Swan maid, why are you smiling?
Last that I saw you, you fought at your chains."
"Kind sir, my children are flying.
My captor is gone and I burned his remains."
"Swan maid, where are you going?
This place is now yours and you could stay here."
"Kind sir, the phoenix is calling,
Within her embrace lies all I now hold dear."

"A swan maid once was I
Born to touch the sky
For far too long I could not fly
But now released in flames I rise!"
