Persephone
Wishbone Ash Lyrics


There's a light that shines on Persephone,
Always a fire in her eyes,
And the last time that I went to her
I could tell things weren't right.

I just don't care to see your years go wasting,
There's no longer magic in your eyes.

In your time, you could outshine everybody else around,
But your off-stage ways might be a bore -
You take a bow, you take a fall.

I came to be here in the footlights,
To live with you through every song,
And your face displays a peaceful field.
I can't believe the curtain has to fall.

Now I know your years were never wasted,
Tonight I saw the magic in your eyes.

lyrics

There's a light that shines on Persephone,
Always a fire in her eyes,
And the last time that I went to her
I could tell things weren't right.
I just don't care to see your years go wasting,
There's no longer magic in your eyes.
In your time, you could outshine everybody else around,
But your off-stage ways might be a bore -
You take a bow, you take a fall.

I just don't care to see your years go wasting,
There's no longer magic in your eyes.

I came to be here in the footlights,
To live with you through every song,
And your face displays a peaceful field.
I can't believe the curtain has to fall.
Now I know your years were never wasted,
Tonight I saw the magic in your eyes.

Światło pada na Persefonę,
W jej oczach zawsze płonie blask,
Ale ostatni raz, gdy poszedłem do niej
Widziałem, że coś jest nie tak.

Nie dbam, że widzę jak twe lata się marnują.
Zabrakło już magii w twoich oczach.

W swym czasie mogłaś przyćmić każdą wokół
Ale po zejściu ze sceny jesteś znudzona -
Dostajesz brawa, zaliczasz upadki.

Nie dbam, że widzę jak twe lata się marnują.
Zabrakło już magii w twoich oczach.

Poszedłem, by być przy światłach rampy,
By być z tobą przez każdą pieśń,
Na twej twarzy rysuje się spokój
Nie wierzę, że kurtyna musi opaść.

Teraz wiem, że twoje lata nigdy nie były zmarnowane,
Dziś w nocy zobaczyłem magię w twoich oczach.

There's a light that shines on Persephone,
Always a fire in her eyes,
And the last time that I went to her
I could tell things weren't right.
I just don't care to see your years go wasting,
There's no longer magic in your eyes.
In your time, you could outshine everybody else around,
But your off-stage ways might be a bore -
You take a bow, you take a fall.
I came to be here in the footlights,
To live…

I cry every time I hear this song even after nearly 40 years.......My girlfriend was pregnant & we picked Persephone if it was a little girl....but we lost the baby in a car accident August of 1979 & our relationship never recovered....Eileen I'm sorry I blamed you....I hope you have had a full & happy life.....& for Persephone, my unborn daughter, I love & miss you & your memory.....

Brian Mc Tague

That's heartbreaking man, just heartbreaking, as a father myself I don't know how i would survive that, maybe this beautiful music helped in some way, I hope so,

Omygod my love. This song means so much to me for different reasons..My heart is breaking for you but please dont be so hard on yourself. A lifetime of hurt is so painful to bare. You need definately to forgive yourself...i really wish i could hold you and show u life goes on my lovely......Much love

So sorry. .........Yes music , beautiful music such as this, makes me ball like a child, or just have tears streaming down my face. Brother, you are not alone, all the beauty of the world and the tragedy is wrapped up in the notes. Play the first two AMERICA album's, only other band that does it to me on a constant basis. God only gives people what they can handle, you are strong and apart of all of us here too, together in this song.

I've only recently been introduced to this song but I've listened to it hundreds of times now and I always read the comments to songs. I have to scroll on from this one every time though as the subject together with the resonating guitars.... 😭

When Persephone goes back every year to her husband, Hades, winter begins.  A deal made by the Greek gods.

@Crafty Spirit a deal made by a disgruntled and jealous brother

Kidnap her, then marry her... that's how gods acted from a civilisation we regard as outstandingly developed 😂
