lyrics

You know the place where the silver birch grow
There my lover sleeps in a blanket of snow
Soon I shall slip ‘neath that blanket with you
My lips on your lips, I whisper to you:
Hold me while I’m growing cold

With a knife in my hand and steel in my heart
I caused my poor love this world to depart

I followed you to where the dark waters flow
And vigilant pike guard the bodies below
I watched as you crushed her against weeping tree
Your lips on her lips, I imagined twas me
I touched myself as she came
Whispering my lover’s name

With a knife in my hand and steel in my heart
I caused my poor love this world to depart
With a knife in my hand and steel in my heart
I laid my love low where the silver birch grow

You lay with another now you’ll lay with me
Some ill-starrèd lovers are parted, but we
Shall share our dark bed til the worms have their way
And turn us to earth, as I turn to say:
Hold me while I’m growing cold
I’ll hold your bones while you grow old

With a knife in my hand and steel in my heart
I cleaved my pale breast and this world did depart
With a knife in my hand and steel in my heart
I laid myself low where the silver birch grow
I laid myself low where the silver birch grow
