The Borderlands – Chris Casswell & Danny Carnahan

The young man sat above the town in the glow of a setting sun
With his head held cradled in his hands, his back against a stone
Saying “Why have I so little time in this wretched place to stand?
“When I can’t take the girl I love back home to the Borderland”

“The Borderlands,” by Danny Carnahan and Chris Casswell

If I didn’t deeply trust the guy who first played this for me and told me it wasn’t originally a filk song, I wouldn’t have believed him.  It’s incredibly beautiful and about…time travel?  Parallel universes?  Fairies?  Unclear.  Judge for yourself.
