Federkleid

I have very few favourite bands that I follow quasi religiously. One of them is Faun, a German pagan folk band that combines old and traditional instruments/music with a modern twist. They're right up my alley; pagan, medieval, and German. They have released a new album last Friday (Midgard), and I absolutely love, love, LOVE it! :) This is my favourite song off the album; Federkleid (plumage)


Federkleid (plumage)

Across the heath, in the early morning glow
Birds pass on by, where may they be tomorrow
I follow the sizzling of the wings into the somber moor
Age-old songs resound from the haze
Come and fly away with us
Let the wind carry you
Far away from this place
Come and fly as high as you can
Let us chase the skies
In our dance
Silken Haze, so chilly, brushing my skin
Further and further, where shall I find my yearning's goal
I close my eyes and grow a plumage
I feel the wind already and spread my wings to fly
Come and fly away with us
Let the wind carry you
Far away from this place
Come and fly as high as you can
Let us chase the skies
In our dance
The heavens in you, how can I know them, can I see them
In flight we dance like the stars, moving on their paths
Come and fly away with us
Let the wind carry you
Far away from this place
Come and fly as high as you can
Let us chase the skies
In our dance
