Once upon a time,
in a faraway place
There was a tiny town
no one thought to name

On the outskirts of the town,
tucked beneath willow trees
Silent as death,
a small cemetary

The undertaker's daughter was a maiden most fair
With her sweet rosy pink cheeks and long flaxen hair
Day after day, she learned her father's trade
Day after day, she wandered through the graves

Alone in the corner,
where the light didn not shine
was an angel made of stone
who looked up to the skies

Her hands folded in a prayer
Her feet covered in grime
Laying upon them
was a plaque old as time

The undertaker's daughter had wandered there,
with her sweet rosy pink cheeks and long flaxen hair
She looked to the plaque, and she thought it was odd
She looked to the plaque, the grave's name was gone.

Everyday from then on,
The daughter went there,
to the grave with the angel,
with the plaque that was bare

Sitting there all alone,
the daughter thought that it was sad
No one ever brought flowers
there were no gifts to be had

One day the girl
Went to the seaside
She played in the sand
With the sun shining bright

While hunting around
The daughter had found
A seashell so beautiful
pearly and round

The undertaker's daughter had searched through there,
with her rosy pink cheeks and her long flaxen hair
She wanted more, of those lovely seashells
She wanted more, and she had a plan, as well...

The undertaker's daughter was maiden most fair,
with her sweet rosy pink cheeks and her long flaxen hair
A gift for the grave, with no name in sight
A gift for the grave, these lovely seashells so bright...

The undertaker's daughter had left them there,
back when she had rosy cheeks and flaxen hair
Now she was gone, but though t'was so long ago
the seashells still shined,
the grave was not alone...
the grave was not alone...
the grave was not alone...

This is very good Celtic music, I am very Interested in the Celtic empire so this all makes complete sense... Except, Undertaker.... There weren’t cars back then... But REALLY good song, Amazing flute and vocals, the piano kind of dies but then comes back. A very inspiring song though, probably going to make my own Celtic song. (This is the longest review I’ve ever written...)

Instrumentally and lyrically genius but I wish the voice was more....real

I should use the non-instrumental song in GD.

If this would Be A Music Video,,,,,,

I absolutely love this song and I come back to listen to it extremely often. Would you mind if me and my band did a power metal cover of this song?
