Here are the lyrics of the song!
How the web was woven
In my soul, don’t you know
How the web was woven
Can’t get loose, can’t let go
Like the weave of a spider
Wound around my heart
I’m no longer free
At last I’m where you want me
Don’t you know, that’s where I want to be?Spinning ’round like a blue fly
Thoughts of you fill my head
And no matter, oh how I try
I can’t sleep in my bed
I’ve been round for the last time
Oh, girl, what can I do?
Oh the time the web was woven,
How I fell in love, fell in love with you
