Reflections on the Fae

This is one of my favorite songs, and has really shaped the way I think of the fae. Forget the way White Wolf watered them down and bought into the whole namby-pamby Victorian trash about the Fair Folk that they portray in Changeling: The Dreaming... *sigh* No wonder people looked at me like I'd grown another head when I told them I GMed Changeling: The Dreaming...

Now, this is closer to what I think of the fae...

Yes they're real. (No, they can't be. . .)
Yes they are, I've seen them walking
Out beyond the wooded garden
Through the towne and through the valley

Yes they're real. (No, they can't be!)
Yes they are- you are not hearing-
For I say I've seen them drinking
In 'The Tavern of the Moon.'

Steel and maille and gilded crossbow,
Feather of the ancient wind bird,
Wide as wonder, tall as starlight,
Lords of earth and lords of fire,
Life the love that they desire.
Lords of earth and lords of fire,
Life the love that they desire.

Yes they're real. (No, they can't be.)
Come with me and see what might be. (I'm afraid!)
O you are childish,
Nothing kills that does not know ye!

Come ye now. (No I fear Thee.)
Did I say that I would lead thee?
We have walked too far this night out beyond the firelight!

Come ye now. (No I fear Thee!)
Come with me, for I will take ye
Dancing now with all my brothers-
I am real! And like the others!

Yes they're real . . . "No!" you told me,
"Yes" I said, you should believe me.
Now we have you wrapped in darkness,
Now we keep you, never leaving.
Trade your life for not believing!

Steel and maille and gilded crossbow,
Feather of the ancient wind bird,
Wide as wonder, tall as starlight,
Lords of earth and lords of fire,
Life the love that they desire.
Lords of earth and lords of fire,
Life the love that they desire!
