Something In The Wood
lyrics and melody by Cat Faber 2019
Everybody knows that there is something in the wood
Restless and uncanny, meaning nothing that is good
I ought to turn away from it, but cannot make the choice,
And from the forest shadows, hear my brother’s voice
In the little town of Hillcrest when the sun is shining bright
Everyone knows everyone, yet strangers walk at night;
In an aura of uneasiness that blossoms into fear
In the forest shadows children disappear
Adam has been missing for two years, or maybe more
I cannot quite remember him the way I did before
His timbre fades from memory, his face begins to dim
But I’m absolutely certain it was really him.
There is something in the forest, where the wicked raven flies.
It watches us with malice in its green and glowing eyes.
On the hearts that held the missing, on the people we became,
In the voices it has stolen, it is laying claim.
