Solstice Evergreen

Song: Solstice Evergreen
Artist: Spiral Dance
Album: The Quickening

It came as a scene
From an old picture postcard
Of Victorian ladies
With skates on their feet

Of ponds frozen over
And boughs hung with ice-tips
And through frosty panes
Watch the snow and the sleet

And the smoke ventured out
From soot blackened chimneys
And shimmered beneath
An icy cold moon

But inside an evergreen
Stands in the corner
And a bright blazing fire
To keep out the gloom

CHORUS

There’s holly and ivy
And white mistleberry
The sun isn’t hiding
His face he can’t show

So fill up your glasses
So we can be merry
While rosy red cheeks
By the firelight glow

Under the street lights
They’ll gather together
Their shivering voices
Will ring out in song

To sing in the yule
Regardless of weather
And brighten the darkness
All the night long

And the mama’s preform
The plays from the ages
In comes King George
A man all courage bold

While out in the orchards
We’ll go wassailing
And sip on spiced cider
To keep out the cold

CHORUS

There’s holly and ivy
And white mistleberry
The sun isn’t hiding
His face he can’t show

So fill up your glasses
So we can be merry
While rosy red cheeks
By the firelight glow

The holly and oak king
Are now changing places
And jack frost is wearing
His new winter vest

While under the wood pile
Old jack green is sleeping
To awaken in spring
From his long deep rest

So on this yuletide
We’ll gather together
Beneath the sign of
The ancient god’s horns

As the new year beckons
Through cold misty weather
We’ll raise a toast
As the sun is reborn

CHORUS

There’s holly and ivy
And white mistleberry
The sun isn’t hiding
His face he can’t show

So fill up your glasses
So we can be merry
While rosy red cheeks
By the firelight glow

It came as a scene
From an old picture postcard
Of victorian ladies
With skates on their feet

Of ponds frozen over
And boughs hung with ice-tips
And through frosty panes
Watch the snow and the sleet

And the smoke ventured out
From soot blackened chimneys
And shimmered beneath
An icy cold moon

But inside an evergreen
Stands in the corner
And a bright blazing fire
To keep out the gloom

CHORUS x2

There’s holly and ivy
And white mistleberry
The sun isn’t hiding
His face he can’t show

So fill up your glasses
So we can be merry
While rosy red cheeks
By the firelight glow

There’s holly and ivy
And white mistleberry
The sun isn’t hiding
His face he can’t show

So fill up your glasses
So we can be merry
While rosy red cheeks
By the firelight glow
