cu chulainn’s lament lyrics – horslips

you felt the chill of midnight ice
as i broke your heart in two.
and i felt the kiss of emptiness
as i watched your life turn blue.

life was a game.
now i miss your name;
your golden hair.
no more in your eyes is the blue
of skies –
only shame.

a lonely soul, betrayed by love,
you walked into the stream.
with tears of love upon my cheeks
i heard your final scream
