To Red, from the Hapless Mother

Standard

Do not look back
do not look back
the road is long and winding
between the marsh and desert
‘tween captivity and binding
do not look back
do not look back
although they screech and call
they may tempt you with their promise
but there’s danger if you stall
Do Not Look Back, girl
don’t look back
pull close your cloak and hood
compress your form beneath them,
pray that all is safe and good
do not look back
never look back
for if you fall or stray
then I can’t protect you, baby
they will find you, blind you, baby
leave you broken, gone- my baby!-
then move on to other prey.
