lyrics

Gold covers the ground
But I'm so far from home
Maybe it could be
A mighty creature, my old friend

And she sang,
“O, mighty creature, where are you?
I am only so strong as the one I hold on to
But it's time for bed
So rest your head, my lover
I am on my way back home”

The wind blows against my way
But I'm still far from home
These trees have grown so tall
But I'll burn them all down to see you again

And she sang,
“O, mighty creature, where are you?
I am only so strong as the one I hold on to
But it's time for bed
So rest your head, my lover
I am on my way back home”

The fog begins to clear
I'm growing closer now
And I can hear that roar
I know it so well, my old friend

And they sang,
“O, mighty creature, here are you!”
And they danced all around for a fortnight or two
“But it's time for bed
So we'll rest our heads together
I am so glad you're back home
I am so glad you're back home.”
