Song: East of the Sun, West of the Moon

1.East of the Sun West of the moon
We lived our lives In sep’rate rooms
A star way shines The moon well sleeps
Across the land, A shadow creeps
The eyes of time Rest in her heart
They rest in mine While we’re apart
East of the Sun West of the moon
The shadow flies To a fiddled tune

2. A pen on paper Writes the law
A heart in love Knows much more
Across the sky With words untold
As light as mist As bright as gold
The message rides Through frosted glen
In winter woodland To tell again
East of the Sun, West of the moon
Of loves lost dreams Of flowers strewn

3. In mirrored darkness, Her face is seen
A sacred flight Recurring dream
The morning breaks Through broken heart
To spill on floors The morning star
The hand wipes brow Agonised sigh
First tears of day, The wish to die
East of the Sun West of the moon
We lived our lives In sep’rate rooms

I began this song at Heidi Berry’s songwriting workshop. I agonised over the chords for ages trying as well as the progress of the melody, it has so many places it could go as a melody, so sing it how you feel it.

The idea began as the typical princess locked up in a tower waiting for her knight in shining armour to set her free, in real life it hardly ever happens.

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
