about

Inspired by events at the massacre of Glencoe on Feb 13, 1632

lyrics

I will wait for my love to come hither to me
I will wait for my love til dawn
I will stand pon the hill overlooking the glen
from where i was forced to flee
There's a glow on the hill in the vale below
There is smoke and the clamour of death
The screams of the dying and the ringing of steel
Are all i can hear in my soul

They came to the glen under auspice of peace
12 days and 12 nights, we'd treat them alike
As to kin of our own family
Never seeing the black in their treacherous hearts
For upon this past morn
In the hours before Dawn
As from hell they spewed forth, in full arms they were wrought
And Death was their only decree

So I ran for the hills as the blood ran thick
And the screams of my kin filled the air
Through wind and snow, we fled from the bowl
Of the glen we had always called home
The cold it cuts deep , as i stagger and weep
In the dark on the mountain alone
For behind in the glen, I have left all the men
To be butchered like so many sheep

For upon this past morn
In the hours before Dawn
As from Hell they spewed forth, in full arms they were wrought
An Death was their only decree

And not least among them, my love my Cheiftan
My Alistar McIan MClean
He sent me from his side, his love . his bride
As he ran to enter the fray
The last that i saw of my man in that horror was his hair
Flying free as the wind
With a glance over his shoulder, his beard white and silver
His eyes spoke to me one final plea

Survive Oh my Love , do not tarry here
For Death is all that is left
Know that I love you my woman my Queen
Our time has been our greatest gift
In the morning I shall be with you on the hill
In someway i'll always be near
But the time has now come, to end as begun
In battle i must die without fear...Die

I will wait for my love to come hither to me
I will wait for my love til Dawn
I lay my body down , on the cold hard ground
My body as cold as the snow
I will take my last breath as the air from my lungs
Exhales long as my soul lets go
Oh my love you have come and you're here by my side
I am warm as i feel your embrace
I reach out to my love as the sun comes up
And he softly caresses my face
