Brighids eyes

This is the first song I wrote for a band I sing in called, tentatively, As one descending.
Lyrics by me and music by my bassist Jen. 

We are all shadows and light,
cobweb spun and lantern bright

A to e
(sustain last word of each line)
In brighids eyes the dark desire
In brighids eyes the pain
In brighids eyes a building fire
In brighids eyes the strain

Chorus
(chorus) e to d to c
Voices raised to midnight’s rite
cobweb spun and lantern bright
Dancing ‘mid the winter’s night
We are all shadows and light
We are all shadows and light

A to e
(sustain last word of each line)
In brighids eyes,  I am confused
In brighids eyes,  the flame
In brighids eyes,  I am consumed
In brighids eyes the shame

Chorus
(chorus) e to d to c
Dancing ‘mid the winter’s night
cobweb spun and lantern bright
Voices raised to midnight’s rite
We are all shadows and light
We are all shadows and light

30 second breakdown
(Sung lamenting with growing force)
In black night I came to you
In black night I found
In black night I dreamed of you
In black night I drowned

In black night I dreamed of you
In black night I found
In black night I came to you
In black night
In black night

A to e
(sustain last word of each line)
My morrigan unseeli sidhe
My morrigan unchained
My morrigan she flies on free
My morrigan unclaimed

(chorus) e to d to c
We are all shadows and light,
cobweb spun and lantern bright
Dancing ‘mid the winter’s night
Voices raised to midnight’s rite
We are all shadows and light
We are all shadows and light
We are all shadows and light
