December Song

On the twenty first of December
At home for the Christmas break
That's when I heard on the radio
That the Maid of the Seas was down

Down on the hills West of Langholm
Down in the fire and the mud
Down all over the border
These fields have seen so much blood

The nights are long in December
Murder cut the days short
Of the bright young hopefuls of Syracuse
Springtime lost

Down in the dark night December
Down in the blood and the fire
In the mirror there's only darkness
Where once I spoke as a child

Down in the dark night December
Down in the Sark and Dryfe Sands
Down and blown in Copshaw Holm
And still there's blood on our hands


from Maid of the Seas, released October 14, 2016
