Hanging Tree
Blackmore’s Night

There have been many tales
Tainted by truth twisted by time

Some choose to forget
Yet it still
Weaves webs in their minds

And it seems like she´s been here forever
Her branches as black as the seas
She´s been through it all
By the luck of the draw
She became the old hanging tree

She asked for nothing
Except maybe
A little rain
They used her strength
To help them steal lives away
And she witnessed the sadness and the sorrow
To this day she still doesn´t know why
And her heart broke
When they came with the rope
To declare her the old hanging tree

Life stranger then fiction
Can make you want to cry
Roots could never stop her
From reaching for the sky
Those years have all past
Lucky for us lucky for her
Now, children play at her feet
And in her arms she cradles birds
And it seems she's been here forever
These days are the best that she´s seen
But somewhere in the back
Of her mind
Is the time
She was known as the old hanging tree
