Embers (Craig Anstey) video

She was raised in a harbour town,
Through hard times and worse;
Her family strugglin' to survive,
Her lover drafted for the war.
She began to work at seventeen,
In a market her uncle ran;
It kept the hourglass tippin',
But it was slowly spillin' sand.

Her youth a tempest of melancholy,
Her memories fragments of lost desire;
The cold ocean wind, and the darkness within,
Eased only by the embers of a once raging fire.

A bleak morrow,
A tenacious stand;
Soldier of sorrow,
In no mans land.
A somber cry,
A futile stand;
Maiden awry,
To her neck in sand.
