Swallow Wind
Al Stewart
Look out, look out, Phoenix cried
My time must be at hand
I'm feeling cold and I don't know why
The ground moves where I stand
All the lies she gave to me
In words that twist and bend
Now the only place for me is down in the swallow wind

Far off and long ago
She came when I was young
A silver moon shining in her eyes
And strange the song she sang
All so easy I trusted her
I thought she was my friend
Now the only place for me is down in the swallow wind

And I don't really know what to tell you now
It's something I just can't control
I thought you wanted to take my love
Now you want my soul

Last I saw her
She was standing in the sand
The ashen moon was in her hair
And a cross was in her hand
I'm sailing alone she cried
Though I can't believe I sinned

Now the only place for me is down in the swallow wind
