Witch of Pittenweem - Emily Barker & the Red Clay Halo

I love discovering new spooky Halloween appropriate music. I came across this one about 6 months ago.



Every morning I'd go
With the dawn to the harbor
Where the gulls fought for guts
Where the boats bayed and echoed

Where the waves wept and stormed
Like my heart that was stolen
When a curse as cold as the sea
Pointed its finger straight at me

Cruel Lord
She has stalked me in dream
You abandoned me
The Witch of Pittenweem
Left me to hang between
The shore and the sea

And the waves did rear
And the bay did burst
When they swallowed your lies
When they heard my cry
Left me to roll between
The earth and the sky

In the dungeon deep
In the company of thieves
I was pulled, I was pushed
'Til my blood danced in mirrors

'Til my life almost left
'Til my words did confess
To a crime I'd never commit
In the cold month of January

Cruel Lord
She has stalked me in dream
You abandoned me
The Witch of Pittenweem
Left me to hang between
The shore and the sea

And the waves did rear
And the bay did burst
When they swallowed your lies
When they heard my cry
Left me to roll between
The earth and the sky

I escaped in the dark
On the mercy of a guard
To the house of a friend
Oh, but betrayal let 'em in

I was dragged through frozen streets
With a rope 'round my heels
Then tied to the mast
And the stones I could feel

'Til they cut me down
Buried me under a door
And the red waves
Lapped the shore

Cruel Lord
She has stalked me in dream
You abandoned me
The Witch of Pittenweem
Left me to hang between
The shore and the sea

And the waves did rear
And the bay did burst
When they swallowed your lies
When they heard my cry
Left me to roll between
The earth and the sky
