The Afanc or The Beast Within In a Village a long time ago Where hearts were fair and true One day dark clouds came to haunt And hatred thrived within The crops they failed The animals perished Hunger soon found man’s darker side.    Nearby beneath the Swallow Falls The deepest pool a black mirror made A monster grew from their wicked thoughts Tainted the land and the falls below The people cried out in despair Who will rid us of this cursed beast A maiden fair with heart of gold And love that burns as bright. Took to herself the icy task To melt the evil away.  Oh Beast so cold your icy heart Needs love and tender lights Leave behind your selfish ways And let your heart be still Shining her mirror on the black pool Turning the dark into light She takes the people close to the edge And bids them look deep within              Why do you hide in the depths and dark? Come bathe in the warmth of the sun Why do you dwell in lonely despair When your hearts should beat as one When your hearts should beat as one When your hearts should beat as one When your hearts should beat as one When your hearts should beat as one   Based on the Welsh legend, the Afanc of Swallow Falls Lyrics and Music by World Tree Music ©
