Stay Away

Tonight, he’ll lie here with trust
Because I am his nightbird
He is lying now
In a golden circle
‘Cause I am the nightbird

Sleeping now
The moment is gone
I can stand between him and the world
While I watch
So no one will touch
While I draw that golden circle

And my eyes warn them
In all their flashing, fierceness of wisdom
Do not enter inside this circle
This man is sleeping
He is at peace now
Stay away

Sleeping now
The moment is gone
I stand between him and his world
And while I watch him
No one can touch him
While I guard  the golden circle
And my eyes warn them
In flashing, fierceness of wisdom
Do not enter
Inside this circle
This man is sleeping

And stay away
Stay away
Stay away…

It is said in the books of Rhiannon
Another of the treasures were the three birds
That the birds of Rhiannon can sing away the pain
Take away the darkness
And sing you golden rainbows
Well, just this minute
The three birds are flying
In perfect formation
The emerald, the golden, the snow white
Because they have flown forever

Down the glorious pathway came the birds
Singing their songs again
He who wrote, the sun is shining and the sky sparkled
Their music filled the air
And everything is fine

Whatever happens to each one of us
We all really should be an island
So you are
And everything is fine…

If you listen carefully
You just might hear the song of Rhiannon
The birds are singing for us
I can just hear them now
I loved you
Then too, he said
I loved your song….
I loved you before I loved your song…

I loved you before I loved your song…
