Allison Crowe - Joan of Arc LyricsNow the flames they followed Joan of ArcAs she came riding through the dark;No moon to keep her armour bright,No man to get her through this dark and smoky night.She said, "I'm tired of the war,I want the kind of work I had before,A wedding dress or something whiteTo wear upon my swollen appetite."“Well, I'm glad to hear you talk this way,I've watched you riding every dayAnd there is something in me that yearns to winSuch a cold, such a lonesome heroine”."And who are you?" she sternly spokeTo the one beneath the smoke."Why, I'm fire," he replied,"And I love your solitude, I love your pride.""Well, then, fire make your body cold,I'm going to give you mine to hold."And saying this she climbed insideTo be his one, to be his only bride.Then deep into his fiery heartHe took the dust of Joan of Arc,And high above all these wedding guestsHe hung the ashes of her lovely wedding dress.It was deep into his fiery heartHe took the dust of Joan of Arc,And then she clearly understoodIf he was fire, oh, she must be wood.I saw her wince, I saw her cry,I saw the glory in her eye.Myself I long for love and light,But must it come so cruel,Must it be so bright?
