One night she met the Devil
on a windy mountain road,
There was a single star
trembling in a lavender sky,
And like two melancholy lovers
they walked to where the streetlights end
And she held him in her arms
and he started to cry,
He said: “You stole my heart, you just a mortal girl”.
She said: “Blind my husband’s eyes and maybe I’ll give
you a whirl”
And she kissed his eyelids closed
And wiped away his tears…….
They’d fly like owls at nightfall, over cities and
He gave her a withered wreath for her birthday and a
And she knew how much he loved her, ‘cos he wrote it in
the dust on a star
And he asked if she’d be his forever and she told him
And in the back bedroom of a madman’s house
He lit a fire in her that no god could douse
And he made snowflakes fall
One stifling summer night …….
Till one day there came a circus, they set up on the
outskirts of town,
Her lover wooed a trapeze girl with magic and lies
That he’d whisper in her ear as tender as summer wind
She had no choice but to do what she did and she
watched her die,
Her lover's gone, he could be anywhere,
But there’s a place he goes, and one day she’ll meet
She walks the mountain every night
Just to watch the twinkling lights ……..
