Scene III: Listen to the Rain (Muirigheal’s Lament)

(Muirigheal):
Reflecting on my life now
fearing all’s in vain
Destiny’s unsure now
Am i the one to blame?
Loose threads of life’s tapestry
loose they must remain
Still fragile and alone i sit
as i listen to the rain

(chorus):
Listen to the rain
i bet you can hear the pain
In the wading drops below my mask
my mind it is insane
Listen to the rain
i bet you can hear the pain
Will my son still shine to save in time
‘cause i can’t take the pain…anymore?

My face is wet i’m not outside
but it’s pouring rain in here
So confused at what may be lost
i now feel my deepest fear
He came to us a savior
but it was all a feign
Should i have raised the boy myself,
or has this been ordained?

(chorus):
Listen to the rain
i bet you can feel the pain
In the wading drops below my mask
my mind it was insane
Listen to the rain
i hope there’s still more to gain
Will my son still shine to save in time
‘cause i can’t take the pain…anymore?

Our children can be like honey
sometimes bitter sweet
My choices i abhor them
Can we still retreat?
Feel responsible for tomorrow’s war
i gave birth to Morrigain
But if Elric returns by the morrow
still there’s hope that will remain

Listen to the rain
i bet you can feel the pain
i feel so inane
When i listen to the rain

Originally written by Dave in the late 1990s as a stand alone song. After toying with the possibility of adding it to Whisperwood, the lyrics are tweaked to fit the narrative and the song officially becomes part of the project.
