Tight Wire: a Prayer

Gwyneth:

Gwyneth:

They say: “War is coming.”

They say: “Prepare yourself.”

They say: “Put away your whimsy; be a warrior, not that elf

Who dances careless in the sunlight; she must pick her shield up now.

They say: “Troubles are upon us; you are Queen; you made a vow.”

Shall I stand in autumn's sunlight, feel the fire catch my wings

Shall I stand in autumn’s sunlight, feel the fire catch my wings

Shall I stand in autumn’s sunlight, feel the fire catch my wings

Shall I be a dancing counterpart, the warrior who sings?

Shall I be a dancing counterpart, the warrior who sings?

Shall I be a dancing counterpart, the warrior who sings?

Or shall I watch as armies march into our sacred Land

Or shall I watch as armies march into our sacred Land

Or shall I watch as armies march into our sacred Land

Or shall I call on beauty and the hearts within my hand?

Or shall I call on beauty and the hearts within my hand?

Or shall I call on beauty and the hearts within my hand?

Oh, what is wrong with leaping, dancing as the battle rains

Oh, what is wrong with leaping, dancing as the battle rains

Oh, what is wrong with leaping, dancing as the battle rains

Can I not be the joy that travels, lightening their pains?

Can I not be the joy that travels, lightening their pains?

Can I not be the joy that travels, lightening their pains?

Is this what you want of me, a goddess leading love

Is this what you want of me? A goddess leading love

Is this what you want of me? A goddess leading love

To battle, ploughshares into swords

To battle, ploughshares into swords?

To battle ploughshares into swords?

I'd rather cast a dancing ward

I’d rather cast a dancing ward

I’d rather cast a dancing ward

Round all of us, a leaping joy

Round all of us, a leaping joy

Round all of us, a leaping joy

In contrast to the warrior Queen

In contrast to the warrior Queen

In contrast to the warrior Queen

How could I then rise to destroy

How could I then rise to destroy

How could I then rise to destroy

An enemy I've never seen?

An enemy I’ve never seen?

An enemy I’ve never seen?

Oh, make me not a warrior

Oh, make me not a warrior

Oh, make me not a warrior

My Goddess, or a harsh mistress

My Goddess, or a harsh mistress

My Goddess, or a harsh mistress

No, let me rise

No, let me rise

No, let me rise

And watch them fade

And watch them fade

And watch them fade

And fade they will

And fade they will

And fade they will

And if they watch me from afar,

And if they watch me from afar,

And if they watch me from afar,

They shall see love, and not distress.

They shall know love, and not distress.

They shall know love, and not distress.
