The Songs of Gallus Line
Do Not See
Gallus Line
©1999, 2000
I grew up in a room
That had no view
I grew up in a room
Overlooking a tomb

And I'd go down
And read the epitaph
It read: Do not see
Do not see
Do not see

Do not see the mountains
Do not see the sky
Do not see your lover in the dawn
Do not see the faces
Of the children that cry
Do not see
Do not see
Do not see

And I'd read the pages
Of the song she wrote
She said: My lover
Come back to me

I cry
And my tears
Fall on our child
Come back to me
Come back to me
Come back to me.

Come back to me my lover
I await you in the dawn
I am on this island that we love
And our child keeps staring
Down the path to our home
Come back to me
Come back to me
Come back to me

And I walk
Down the rows
Of those that are gone
I listen to them
And I hear their song

I listen
In the wind
I hear their voice
They sing: We are free
We are free
We are free

We are free to remember
Those that we love
Yes, we are free
To remember the times
That we lie down
With our lover in the dawn
We are free
We are free
We are free

I walk down the path
Between bough and blade
The shade it dances
All around me

I listen to the ones
Who visit here
They say: My lover
Come back to me

Come back to me
My lover I await you in the dawn
Come back to me
I cannot go on
But their words just fail
Like all who've come before
Come back to me
Come back to me

And I kneel
Before the image of
The one who is buried
In this tomb

I feel the hand
I hear the voice
It says: Do not see
Do not see
Do not see

Do not see
Do not see
Do not see
