The Way Through The Woods (Long Version) - Pet Shop Boys

They shut the road through the woods

Seventy years ago


Weather and rain have undone it again

And now you would never know

There was once a road through the woods

Before they planted the trees

It is underneath the coppice and heath

And the thin anemones

Only the keeper sees

That where the ring-dove broods

And the badgers roll at ease

There was once a road through the woods


Yet if you enter the woods

Of a summer evening late

When the night-air cools

On the trout-ringed pools

Where the otter whistles his mate

They fear not men in the woods

Because they see so few

You will hear the beat of a horse's feet

And the swish of a skirt in the dew

Steadily cantering through

The misty solitudes

As though they perfectly knew

The old lost road through the woods

But there is no road through the woods
