lyrics

Isobel the endless summer,
Is the slow poison that kills her,
Silent meadows empty laughter,
Nothing to look for you'd rather,

Fade away, fade away, fade away,
Into the hills where the great oaks sway,
Fade away fade away fade away,
Into the dawn on the longest day,

You dream of the hollow hills,
From a place where life stands still,
You know the storm that's coming,
Will put an end to your longing,

Fade away, fade away, fade away,
Into the hills where the great oaks sway,
Fade away fade away fade away,
Into the dawn on the longest day,

Bare breasted under the stars,
She knows she's not the perfect bride,
Fills the hole in her broken heart,
With secret songs and ancient rites,

So she sings when no one is listening,
She dances where no one is standing,
In the halls of the faery Queen,
She got so drunk,
She smashed her wings

Fade away, fade away, fade away,
Into the hills where the great oaks sway,
Fade away fade away fade away,
Into the dawn on the longest day,

She left a broom in her husband's bed,
A stupid prank a last farewell,
Then she spat at the Church Elders,
One day your God will be forgotten,

Isobel lived for her truth,
And she paid the highest price,
And around her graceful neck,
The rope has left purple marks,

Now fade away, fade away, fade away,
Into the hills where the great oaks sway,
Fade away, fade away, fade away,
Into the dawn on the longest day,

They buried her at the crossroads,
Like the shameless witch that she was,
Free to roam in the faery land,
No more a slave to the world of men,

Fade away, fade away, fade away,
Into the hills where the great oaks sway,
Fade away, fade away, fade away,
Into the dawn on the longest day,


1,2 give the Devil his due,
3,4 sail me to the shore,
5,6 on the river Styx,
7,8 and through the Gate,

Fade away
Fade away
