By snowy fields and lanes, she keeps the waiting
In candlelight the sacred alter shines
He suckled the young lambs upon his knee
Givin' the weary sleep in peace

But he read the stars inside her dream
But he was blind
He read the stars inside her dream
But he was blind

Of winter's love for spring, she kept the vision
Sweet chariots aflame against the sky
He played on the harp, sweet melody
Children and emperors came to see

And he drove the dragons into the night
But he was blind
He drove the dragons into the night
But he was blind

So lock all the gates and bolt the chamber door
Because nobody leaves or enters anymore
And lock all the gates and bolt the chamber
Lock all the gates and bolt the chamber

Lock all the gates and bolt the chamber
Lock all the gates and bolt the chamber
Would you lock all the gates and bolt up the chamber

Lock all the gates and bolt up the chamber
Lock all the gates and boltin' up the chamber
Lock all the gates and boltin' up the chamber
Lock all the gates and bolt up the chamber

Come, come, come, come
Come, come, come, come

Somebody come and lock all the gates and bolt the chamber
Lock all the gates and bolt the chamber
Nobody leaves or enters anymore

No, no, no, no, no

By snowy fields and lanes she keeps the waiting
In candlelight the sacred alter shines
He suckled the young lambs upon his knee
He bid the weary sleep in peace

He read the stars inside her dream
But he was blind
He read the stars inside her dream
But he was blind

He read the stars inside her dream, dream
But the man was blind, he was blind
