lyrics

oh misery,
give me a rest
in this dream of ours
oh misery,
smoke low on the horizon
we’ll meet again

oh loneliness,
give me a rest
in this dream of ours
oh loneliness,
the lamplight low is whispered out
a hollow sound

her silken train, the ghostly bride
floating on the blackened tide
we’ll meet again on the other side

the vessel laid in gold and jade
traveler come home through the water
hold on tight to the light
of the moon

great mystery,
give me some hope
in this dream of ours
oh mystery,
the old dust blown and cast about
it sighs aloud

her silken train, the ghostly bride
floating on the blackened tide
we’ll meet again on the other side

the vessel laid in gold and jade
traveler come home through the water
hold on tight to the light
of the moon

she slips through my arms
drinker, moon, and shadow

the vessel laid in gold and jade
traveler come home through the water
hold on tight to the light
of the moon
