"The Hazards of Love 2 (Wager All)" as written by and Colin Meloy....
William:
And here I am, softer than a shower
And here I am, to garland you with flowers
To lay you down in a clover bed
The stars a roof above our heads

And all my life I've never felt the tremor
And all my life, that now disturbs my fingers
I'll lay you down in a clover bed
The stars, a roof above our heads

And we'll lie until the Corn Crake crows
Bereft of the weight of our summer clothes
And I'd wager all
The hazards of love
The hazards of love

And take my hand and cradle it in your hand
And take my hand, feel the pull, the quicksand
I'll lay you down in a clover bed
The stars, a roof above our heads

And we'll lie until the Corn Crake crows
Bereft of the weight of our summer clothes
And I'd wager all
The hazards of love
The hazards of love
The hazards of love
The hazards of love

    General CommentWilliam is the one singing this song to Margaret. He spends the day wandering in the form of a fawn, which is how Margaret originally found him. At night, he's a man. So here in this song, he's a man, doing manly things with his lover, Margaret.
    And it's freaking BEAUTIFUL.

    BTWz, the story's set roughly in the Scotland area.
