lyrics

May Madness

In the dead of the night when you wore your disguise
All I saw was the light shining out of your eyes
As we danced round and round making patterns on the pole
I think I got my colours tangled up with your soul

Don’t go, it’s an awful mess
I think I’ve got a case of May madness

Who it was, I don’t know, but someone lit a fire
As it burned in the night I felt your desire
From the heat of the flame to the deep, dark woods
Nobody puts the stars around the moon the way you could

Don’t go, don’t leave like this
There’s nothing here to fear it’s only May madness

The goddess tree is growing strong
So kiss me now we don’t have long
And mortal life goes on and on

There’s a girl over there running naked in the rain
She’s got flowers in her hair and Bluebell is her name
There’s a boy on a bridge and a river rushing by
And a stag on the side of the road to Skye

The goddess tree is growing strong
So kiss me now we don’t have long
And mortal life goes on and on

In the dead of the night when you wore your disguise
All I saw was the light shining out of your eyes
As we danced round and round making patterns on the pole
I think I got my colours tangled up with your soul
