Helena where are you going Your father's eyes are bleeding Your mothers cross is hard to bear Helena look your lovely hair Is fallen to your knees, Fallen to your knees in prayer Helena can you trust him Your baby's feet are growing You feel him scratching killing time Your mother's eyes look on and cry Helena look your hair, Helena look your lovely hair Daughters do what mothers would warn them from And fathers see that young men are how they used to be Helena can you feed him, he suckles on your freedom Your mother's wisdom earned in vain For now your life is just the same Helena look your hair, Helena look your lovely hair Helena where are you going You hear the river flowing It calls you down it begs you in Your baby cries out from within Helena look your hair, Helena look your lovely hair Helena beware Helena take care
