1657 (black curtains draw) lyrics – crusades

the salt and soil have settled
the hymns escaped the air
the view of home obstructed
and returns in turn now rare

a shadow of itself
and he about the same
eyes that shone so brilliant
now perplexed and without aim

‘so close the ground
about her shade
black curtains draw
my bride is laid’

how is your faith now, father?
do you still trust she’ll be there?
how she appeared within our dreams
through that harrowing year?

i want to believe
you’re better than this
i need to believe you’re better
i know you need
to forget that time
i know you need to forget her

the course that lay before us
differing in distance
