Stay away from the dark places

I once was a sailor, and I crossed oceans wide
And I left there behind me, my beautiful bride
But a banshee did take her, on my oath I declare
There was no one to save her, I just wasn't there

She came back in the darkness, on a cold winters night
Her grey gnarled features, were a hideous sight
But I cannot escape her, nowhere can
I hide
For the curse of the Banshee, It will never subside

Down in the forest, where no one can see
Alone in the darkness, she waits there for me
Her wailing brings forth, the final death knell
This collector of souls, this demon from hell

So I go to the forest, there's just no other way
And maybe my family, will forgive me some day
But Its me that she waits for, this taker of life
Cause this Banshee from hell, she once was my wife
