gnomad Meaning: Farewell Farewell (Fairport Convention) (44) RE: Meaning: Farewell Farewell (Fairport Convention) 30 Jun 12

From RT's BeesWeb site in Nov 2007:

"Much as I love this song (Farewell Farewell), I cannot grasp the meaning of part of it:

And will you never cut the cloth, Or drink the light to be, And can you never swear a year, To anyone of/but? we?

What does this mean, what does it refer to? I would be much obliged if you could tell me. kind regards, Wies Morcus

I really don't know what it means. This song came out of a dream, and I pretty much wrote it as I dreamt it (it was the sixties), and didn't spend very long analyzing it. So interpret as you wish or replace with your own lines."

If HE can't say, then it might prove tricky getting a solid answer (but still fun trying)
