Someday I will reach...
For the sun and hold it tightly
I will place my hand...
Into the flame and watch it burning
Someday you will reach...
Out for this sun but don't you touch it
Someday you will see...
The beating heart inside me yearning

Listen to the crows, they know
Listen to the crows, they know

The crimson light is here...
It's looking for you, it is magic
It flooding over me...
Is what I have been waiting for
The crows they are calling...
They see it coming, they will warn you
The owl spreads it's wings...
It leads us into the dark forest

Listen to the crows, they know
Listen to the crows, they know

The faeries they will meet...
Us there and trick us they can't be trusted
Their eyes, they are so bleak...
But they have seen things you can't fathom
Their eyes, they are so bleak...
Blue and brown and dark and empty
Their hearts, they are so weak...
They know the truth and they won't fight it

Listen to the crows, they know
Listen to the crows, they know
