Maids of Elfen-Mere

the Maids of Elfen-mere
watch over the boy with chestnut hair
and as he dreams about his love for them
they make a vow to protect him

spinning their song
sung by a happy corpse
foreseeing a pretty girl drawing
her arrow
but what they want to know
will she bring him
true love
or sorrow

the Maids of Elfen-mere
don’t know that the boy with chestnut hair
winds back the clock at the 11th bell
hoping to follow them
through the veil

spinning their song
sung by a happy corpse
foreseeing a pretty girl drawing
her arrow
but what they want to know
will the Queen of Eastland or the Wastelands be waking
the Maids of Elfen-mere
