about

The music for this piece will be well-known to The Mitchells' followers as "Absalom." Just as it was the epic centerpiece of their most recent orchestrally-minded album, the song provides an equally strong musical foundation for the key transition point in the DSM story.

During this act, the wanderer moves from courtship to falling in love; he believes that the maiden has also fallen in love with him. In the instrumental passages, the interplay between the oboe (the maiden) and the guitar melodies (the wanderer) is an elegant dance that almost intertwines, but never quite connects or harmonizes. While he is falling completely for her, she is merely playing along. A dark, ominous strain appears in the midst of the triumphant ending, a signal of the coming trouble...

lyrics

Wait Love, Wait Love, Wait on Love
Hold back for a cold day later on
You dream your father’s mill stream
You know my walls stop everything
Get ready for me
Move around

Seasons chime
Seasons rhyme
Seasons go
We are nothing, we are nothing in the night!

So cold and tired
I feel cold
Poor lad he owned night and paid a Hunter’s Fee!

You dream but I feel nothing
You see but I know everything
You ride upon light
Without me

Seasons Chime
Seasons Rhyme
Seasons Go
You know nothing, You know nothing but the night.

Oh my love
Oh meine Love
Oh my Love
Oh my love
