From the recording Dragon and the Phoenix


Dragon and the Phoenix
(lyrics and music - Clare Brett) copyright Socan

In the deep heart of the forest
Lies a dragon made of stone
Sleeps enchanted in the shadows
By the water dreams alone
As the moonrise lights the water
She comes dancing in the wind
Weaving spells, wrapped in starlight
Dark-eyed Lady softly sings

ch...Burning water, melting stone
Dragon soul, ash and bone
Flaming wind, heart of fire
Only you, my desire

Moonpale hands caress the stone
Whirling golden eyes aglow
Sunless fire wake scale and bone
Copper wings unfurling slow
"Mortal days swiftly pass
In such unseemly haste
I would know ere mine are gone
A dragon's love, let me taste"
