Cinquefoil and Tormentil

Back to Album listing


Somewhere, out across the sea
There's a place where I would be
Where sky met sea, where sea met land
Where you and I walked hand in hand

And this feeling comes upon me
When I think about it still
So hold me, lead me to the hill
With cinquefoil and tormentil

Bright streams from the snows above
Where I first lived with my love
Yellow sun lighting up the west
Where my two children first drew their breath

And this feeling comes upon me
And it takes an act of will
To hold me, further from the hill
With cinquefoil and tormentil

Ferry boats out upon the sea
Making lines to infinity
Birds wheel in the scented air
Though far away, my heart beats there

When this feeling comes upon me
My cup is overflowing still
So hold me, lead me to the hill
With cinquefoil and tormentil
