Staring at the dark with hungry eyes,
Moonlight flickered in the shadows cried,
Gold ring flashed and the howling stopped,
I called her name and the west wind dropped.
I called her name and the west wind dropped.

I push her on the arm with the silver cane,
Took her by the hand, I saw her pain,
My breath smelt like a burning house,
Bitter cold words upon my mouth.
Bitter cold words upon my mouth.

A tall dark figure is on the loose,
With big sharp teeth to bite the truth,
I steal your honour and tell you lies,
Leave you all alone in the blood red sky
I'll leave you all alone in the blood red sky

Wake up late in the mid day sun,
Reach for the shadow but I'll be gone,
Through empty fields and storm blown trees,
Praying to the night to set you free,
You'll be praying to the night to set you free.

A tall dark figure is on the loose,
With big sharp teeth to bite the truth,
I steal your honour and tell you lies,
Leave you all alone in the blood red sky
I'll leave you all alone in the blood red sky

Leave you all alone
Sky
Blood red sky
Blood red sky
Blood red sky

(Violin solo)

Stained glass windows, shadowed pains,
Fairy tale stories and autumn rings
Falling shadow and a cold embrace
Cross your heart and you'll see my face
Cross your heart and you'll see my face

A tall dark figure is on the loose,
With big sharp teeth to bite the truth,
I steal your honour and tell you lies,
Leave you all alone in the blood red sky

A tall dark figure is on the loose,
With big sharp teeth to bite the truth,
I steal your honour and tell you lies,
Leave you all alone in the blood red sky

A tall dark figure is on the loose,
With big sharp teeth to bite the truth,
I steal your honour and tell you lies,
Leave you all alone in the blood red sky
I'll leave you all alone in the blood red sky
I'll leave you all alone in the blood red sky
