"Black Stream" lyrics - DEAD CAN DANCE

"Black Stream"

Where the stars sleep in the calm black stream
Like some great lily, pale Ophelia floats
Slowly floats, wound in her veils like a dream
Half heard in the woods, halloos from distant throats

A thousand years has sad Ophelia gone
Glimmering on the water, a phantom fair
A thousand years her soft distracted song
Has waked the answering evening air
