"Lady Of The Lake" as written by and Stephen/luttrell Hagler....
Morning, is just a broken wind in my glasses
Hand-me-down upon the sea

When the morning is icy
Won't you come to me?
You were turning to 'nothing is the key'

See the lady of the lake
Watching her smile
She's dancing in her hands
Under the spotlight

    General Commentalcalaunit is exactly right. Those are the actual lyrics. I have the album, with the lyrics, and I've sung these lyrics out loud many times to this great song by this great band! The lyrics that are printed on the album are the same lyrics the band sings in the song.

    Lyric CorrectionThese lyrics are incredibly difficult, and when I listened to them, I got a very different interpretation from yours. Somehow I wound up with:

    Morning, velvet, crystal broken edged with scarlet
    Hand me down upon the sea
    Melting golden flesh is cracked and spilled in gardens
    Circles grow on me.
    Fly beyond (or perhaps me out), Fly beyond
    Beyond what will be
    Fly beyond, Fly beyond
    Beyond what will be.

    Will the morning I see, one day come to me?
    You will turn it, nothing is the key
    She's a lady of the lake
    Wrapped in the sun,
    With the summer in her hands
    Owing no one,
    And the flashing of her eyes,
    Life is bigger, ah!
    Da Da!

    Will the morning I see, one day come to me?
    You will turn it, nothing is the key
    She's a lady of the lake
    Wrapped in the sun,
    From her features and her fame(?)
    Flowing to one(?)
    And the burning of her breath,
    Time is under, Ah!

    Morning, velvet, crystal broken edged with scarlet
    Hand me down upon the sea
    Melting golden flesh is cracked and spilled in gardens
    Circles grow on me.
    Fly beyond (or perhaps me out), Fly beyond
    Beyond what will be
    Fly beyond, Fly beyond
    Beyond what will be.

    General CommentAlright, so my father dug up his old album, and here are the actual lyrics:

    I.
    Rolled in velvet crystal
    Broken reds with scarlet
    Hand-me-down of sundry seas
    Melting golden flesh is cracked and spilled in garden-circles
    grown of me
    Fly me on
    Fly me on
    The hour will be
    Fly me on
    Fly me on
    The hour will be

    II.
    Window morning I see wonder come to me
    You will turn it, nothing is the key
    Window morning I see wonder come to me
    You will turn it, nothing is the key
    She's the lady of the lake, wrapped in the sun
    With the summer in her hand, owing no one
    In the flashing of her eyes, life is begun

    III.
    Window morning I see wonder come to me....
    She's the lady of the lake, wrapped in the sun
    Grown of features and of flame, flowing to one
    In the burning of her breath, time is undone

    Repeat I.

    General CommentI can't find the lyrics to any of Starcastle's songs, but I tried to make up the lyrics that almost sound like "Lady Of The Lake".

    Because you can barely understand the words they say. I can understand some parts.

    General CommentWell, Stacastle is really underrated prog rock band from the 70s, and one of my fav. artists.

    I think it's about a lady with these amazing powers or something like that.

    General CommentGuitarist and song writer Steve Hagler told me the classic line that the lyrics don't mean anything...

    General CommentSome of you guys' lyrics are so far off! Are you sure you don't moonlight as lyrics transcribers for karaoke songs? ;-)
