Around where painted petals grow,
But when you came a-seeking, I could not be found.
And though there's laughter in the leaves,
And a shimmer in the air,
However far and wide you look,
You'll only find that I'm not there.
Rumour spread that I was dancing solo
Under the ice of frozen lakes,
But when you came the only footprints left
Were waltzing in the sky.
And though there's laughter on the evening breeze
And a wide grin fading on the moon,
However fast and long you chase
You won't catch me, I'm gone.
They thought they saw me in the woods,
A faerie queen of thorns,
But they got me wrong - there were petals waiting
When you arrived at dawn,
And the only thorn I left behind
Is the one pricking your heart.
Chase me through the sunrise, chase me over stars,
Chase me through the looking glass,
But I'm not there, I'm gone.
