about

This track is based off the Brother's Grimm fairytale "The Juniper Tree". It is about a jealous Step mother murdering her husband's son for a claim at the family fortune only to receive nothing but death and vengeance in the end.

lyrics

Once upon a time long ago
I dreamed of a life that was my own
With a wife and a son
And days filled with songs never ending
All I am
Oh i would part with it all for this life

Long I have prayed to the Gods
Under the Juniper Tree
To deliver a child
White as the snow and red
As a new born dawn
This I ask before my time has come

Oh, alas
This child has been taken from me
A death so cruel
Innocent boy slain by jealous hands to take what is mine
Song of deception the Wings over head
Bring swift end

Long I have prayed to the Gods
Under the Juniper Tree
To deliver a child
White as the snow and red
As a new born dawn
Emptiness fills my heart ever more

Long I have prayed to the Gods
Under the Juniper Tree
To deliver a child
White as the snow and red
As a new born dawn
Lay me down next to her in the Juniper Tree
