Helena

Helena where are you going
Your father's eyes are bleeding
Your mothers cross is hard to bear
Helena look your lovely hair
Is fallen to your knees, Fallen to your knees in prayer

Helena can you trust him
Your baby's feet are growing
You feel him scratching killing time
Your mother's eyes look on and cry
Helena look your hair, Helena look your lovely hair

Daughters do what mothers would warn them from
And fathers see that young men are how they used to be

Helena can you feed him, he suckles on your freedom
Your mother's wisdom earned in vain
For now your life is just the same
Helena look your hair, Helena look your lovely hair

Helena where are you going
You hear the river flowing
It calls you down it begs you in
Your baby cries out from within
Helena look your hair, Helena look your lovely hair
Helena beware
Helena take care
