Heather Alexander – Dance In The Circle lyrics

Out in the wood, there's a band of small Faeries,
If you walk unwary at night-
They're laughing and drinking, and soon you'll be thinking,
That you'd come to join in their light-

If they see you, you know they'll entreat you,
To come and join in their small friendly dance-
If you do then your soul will go too,
You will loose it with no second chance-

So please come, join, dance in the circle,
The voices will make your heart yearn-
To please come, join, dance in the circle,
But know that you'll never return-

They'll promise you gold and silver a-plenty,
You'll never be empty of love-
Beauty and pleasure, and time at your leisure,
All things that you've been dreaming of-

Success will be yours, through several doors,
What ever you wish, you will find you can do-
Beware of this prize, as a curse in disguise,
Since your mortal life soon will be through-

There is a way, as some folk would say,
To save you 'til the dawn-
Denounce their kind, from your mind,
Then you'll find they are gone-

Children's tales, pirate sails,
Unicorns, dragons, sorcerers too,
They're man conceived, make believe,
You know that they aren't true-

And now I must tell, that I'm under their spell,
Though I know not for how long I've been-
And I love a man, though I know that I can
Never ever go see him again-

I went to the king, in his wise faerie-ring,
I asked him, "Oh what do you think I should do?"
He said, "You'll be fine!", took a large swill of wine,
And said, "Why don'cha have him join you?"
