Song Description

the singer of the song is feeling death approaching and tries to fend him off. She knows he's coming but she's trying to avoid having to go with him

Lyrics

Ballinaboula, home in the rain
Darkness before me
Behind me just the wind and the rain
The sound of horses
Fear in their race
My heart beating
Gathering apace
I don't want to see his face
I don't want to look at him now
Devil with an angel's face

He came again last night
Sailing over the water on a piece of flotsam
And he had his witches with him
I was their names all signed in blood
Under the leaves they danced into the wood
I saw their names all signed in blood
Under the leaves and carved in wood
I don't want to see his face
I don't want to look at him now
Devil with an angel's face

And the air was full of them
Riding up on horses under Carrig
And girls behind them all to one
And he told her he was waiting for her
He told her he would come
