The bend of the tree and the hiss of the wind
The rattle and hum of a blackened gun
What the birds see in the buffeting breeze
Child, the wild hunt has begun

The curse of the cold and the freezing limb
We'll never see the like of this again
These solid bodies and the silent still
Child, the wild hunt here to kill

Oh! My bones divide and shake!
And I'm lost to the wind and the darkened day
Silent prayers on a tossing sea
Is there any hope for me?

In the mouth of the dog, frozen in snow
Slowly we're covered, unseen from the road
The plans we made slaughtered in the sun
Child, the wild hunt has begun

Oh! My bones divide and shake!
And I'm lost to the wind and the darkening day
Silent prayers on a late night bus
Is there any hope for us?

Oh! What a love this was!
Frozen in a morning kiss
In a car by the side of a football ground
The wind the only sound
As the wild hunt went to ground
