Testo della canzone The Shepherd – Genesis (1970) dei Genesis
Rise up! Take your mar and sing!
Listen! To the news I bring!
Frosty breath on the window,
See a friend in the snow that gently falls.
Feel the truth in those sad eyes
See the smile that’s so rare
Just like the love she waits for…
And she plays a game of her own
As she sleeps within the firelight
For her dreams are incredibly wild
But they’re gone and lost forever, with the dawn.
Fair and friend of the Fleece spoke,
Warrior brave, shepherd wise, fair prince of peace.
Someone waits in the doorway
On a white horse he comes and holds out the hand
She waits for…
So they ride through a valley of mist
To a castle in the heavens
Where he lays her down to rest
But he’s lost and gone forever, with the dawn.
See her writhe in her dream, then…
Mermaids sing in the sunset
Sadly asking if beauty ever walks free?
But Queen Frost only whispers
Maidens you will remain, to be free.
See her writhe in her dreams…
Lord of the seven sons!
Keeper of the keys of time!
