Wylde Nept: Music & Lyrics

Between Moonbeams

(Wylde Nept)
2005
Music – Jon Southwood | Lyrics- Westan James

Steven’s wife Katie asked me to write a song about a witch while we were at the War of the Lillies, (an historical re-enactors event) and the shining moon & twinkling fires drew down this song instead.

Through the smoke and the glare, see her long auburn hair
As she strides through the fair in her gown
In the flickering light she’s a beautiful sight
As she captures the talk the town
 
She’s in search of a man with her smooth slight of hand
She will claim whom she can with a wink
And you cannot resist with a word or a fist
Once you’re magically kissed; you will sink
 
Between moonbeams you can see her
When the night wind drifts and blows
Between moonbeams you can love her
While the fire softly glows
 
Well the men push and shove all blinded with love
Each one hoping he’ll get a chance
They forget what they know when she puts on her show
Now watch them all circle and dance
 
And the women will glare as the men start to stare
At that glamorous snare all the while
Her men never return and it’s whispered she’ll burn
But for now, watch her turn, see her style
 
Between moonbeams you can see her
When the night wind drifts and blows
Between moonbeams you can love her
While the fire softly glows
Well the locals all tell of the girl from the dell
Who only is seen once a year
She comes down from the wood, and she’s up to no good
You can see in old faces a fear
 
When the dancing is done and the dawn marching on
And the fire and the moon burning low
She is gone with a man, last seen hand in hand
Spellbound for where we’ll never know
 
Between moonbeams you can see her
When the night wind drifts and blows
Between moonbeams you can love her
While the fire softly glows
