This song is by Blackmore's Night and appears on the album Autumn Sky (2010) and on the album A Knight In York (2012).

Once upon a dark autumn night
I was so very far from sleep
I longed to walk beneath the stars
Into the wood so dark and deep

Neither myth nor faerie tale
Could keep me from the path to the maze
But eyes upon me I could feel
Hidden in the shadows watching always

Something in the darkness pulled me deeper
Something in the madness eased my mind
Was I awake or was I dreaming?
Cut the strings that bind me to mankind

Once while I was sitting in my room
One cold and silver winter's day
I could hear an otherworldly call
Try as I might, I couldn't turn away

Something in the darkness pulled me deeper
Something in the madness eased my mind
Was I awake or was I dreaming?
Cut the strings that bind me to mankind

Somewhere in between the moss and the stone
The wind and the wood became my home
I laid myself down upon the green
When the ivy overgrew I could never leave

Something in the darkness pulled me deeper
Something in the madness eased my mind
Was I awake or was I dreaming?
Cut the strings that bind me to mankind

Something in the darkness pulled me deeper
Something in the madness eased my mind
Was I awake or was I dreaming?
Cut the strings that bind me to mankind
