My fingers touch the solid stones
Strong and cold, they keep me from home
Imprisoned like a wingless dove
Far away from the land I love

Lonely days count lonely years
I have cried a thousand tears
All that I tried to gain
Is lost the effort was in vain

At Carberry Hill I lost my crown
My husband fled my luck went down
In England's hands I fell
Eighteen years a living hell

The Scottish crown belongs to me
Yet I'm bound I can not flee
With iron claws England holds tight
All is lost no chance to fight

Silence, silence everywhere

Cold walls are my reward
Loneliness engulfs my soul
I've been true I gave my heart
Stained tears I cried
I long to be free again
To walk in peace again
Scotland cries her queen is lost
Agony's her friend again
