The Witch's Son

I'm walking on a thin line, mother
and I'm not coming home
I'm running in the fields now, mother
and I'm not coming home
I'm going down to town tomorrow
they'll listen to my song in sorrow
and from tears their son won't rise
but they'll find you home

I am the witch's son
And here i have come
to shed my dark light
on your sleepless night

I am the witch's son
you had a son too
he didn't get lost in the woods
in the old well, he didn't fall

the wolves didn't find him
the lightning didn't strike him
he wasn't poisoned by the viper's fangs
but I saw him coming home

I'm walking on a thin line, mother
I'm standing in the fields now,
Tonight I'm so alone
I'm coming home.
