lyrics

I remember the old crone
Saying that you don’t
Walk alone in these forests after dark

My father would sigh
And then he would try
To explain, but he’d never really start

The folks in the town
Told stories in the round
But they never really spoke the final part

So my brother and I
Were left asking why
You never walk these forests after dark

There are whispers in the woods they say
They won’t let you turn away
The black stones in the forest
They weren’t put there by man
And once you hear that buzzing sound
Or see the prints upon the ground
And feel your blood run cold with fear
Then you’ll understand.

So my brother one day
Decided he would pay
No heed to the words our elders told

He strapped on his knife
And kissed me good-bye
And set off alone into the cold

When my parents returned
I told them what I’d learned
Mother’s grief was a sight to behold

My father just stared
And I was not prepared
To see a broken man who once had been so bold

There are whispers in the woods they say
They won’t let you turn away
The black stones in the forest
They weren’t put there by man
And once you hear that buzzing sound
Or see the prints upon the ground
And feel your blood run cold with fear
Then you’ll understand.

We sat through the night
At morning’s first light
The village men set off into the woods

And what they brought back
Fit into a sack
What happened I’ve never understood

But from the woods in the fall
I can hear my brother call
I listen though I don’t think that I should

He calls out to me
So tonight I’ll go and see
I’d resist him but I don’t think that I could

There are whispers in the woods they say
They won’t let you turn away
The black stones in the forest
They weren’t put there by man
And once you hear that buzzing sound
Or see the prints upon the ground
And feel your blood run cold with fear
Then you’ll understand.
