Song Meaning
Verse 1
The queen of light took her bow
And then she turned to go
The prince of peace embraced the gloom
And walked the night alone
Verse 2
Oh, dance in the dark of night
The dark lord rides in force tonight
And time will tell us all
Oh, throw down your plow and hoe
Verse 3
Side by side we wait the night
The darkest of them all
Ah
Oh
Verse 4
I hear the horses' thunder
Down in the valley below
I'm waiting for the angels of Avalon
Waiting for the eastern glow
Verse 5
The apples of the valley hold
The seas of happiness
The ground is rich from tender care
Repay, do not forget
Verse 6
The apples turn to brown and black
The tyrant's face is red, ohhhh
Oh, war is the common cry
The sky is filled with good and bad
That mortals never know, ohhh
Ohh
Verse 7
Oh, well, the night is long
The beads of time pass slow
Tired eyes on the sunrise
Waiting for the eastern glow
Verse 8
The pain of war cannot exceed
The woe of aftermath
The drums will shake the castle wall
The ring wraiths ride in black
Verse 9
Sing as you raise your bow
No comfort has the fire at night
That lights the face so cold
Oh, dance in the dark of night
Verse 10
The magic runes are writ in gold
To bring the balance back
Bring it back
Oh
Verse 11
At last the sun is shining
The clouds of blue roll by
With flames from the dragon of darkness
The sunlight blinds his eyes
Verse 12
Oh oh Oh, ah ah ah ah
Bring it back,
Bring it back,
Bring it back,
Bring it back,
Bring it back,
Bring it back,
Bring it back,
Bring it back,
Verse 13
Oh
Bring it back,
Bring it back,
Bring it back,
Bring it back,
Verse 14
Oh
Oh now,
Oh now,
Oh now,
Oh now,
Oh now,
Oh now,
Oh now,
Oh now,
Verse 15
Bring it,
Bring it,
Bring it,
Bring it,
Bring it,
Bring it,
Verse 16
Oh
Verse 17
Huh huh huh [Repeat: x 28]
