"Secret Voyage" (2008)

Locked Within The Crystal Ball Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Here in the spotlight this moment is ours
No one can stop us, we're one with the stars

I feel the waves begin to rise
Far across the ocean deep within your eyes
Silently watching as they fall
I can see the future locked within the crystal ball

Strike up the lightening, hear my prayer
Feel the light electric dancing through the air
Here by the ancient castle wall
Can you see the future locked within the crystal ball

Here in the spotlight this moment is ours
No one can stop us, we're one with the stars

Quiet by nature, standing tall
Old stone circles, they have seen it all
Caught like a ghost in yesterday, shadows down the hall
Are locked within the crystal ball

Fire and water, earth and sky
Mysteries surround us, legends never die
They live for the moment, lost in time, I can hear them call
They're locked within the crystal ball

I feel the waves begin to rise
Far across the ocean deep within your eyes
Silently watching as they fall
I can see the future locked within the crystal ball

Gilded Cage Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

I walk alone, the night wears a shadow
Painted in silver, painted in gold
The moment ends in silence, then the moment grows old

And when she smiles, a thousand dreams surround her
Dress them in secrets no one can hold
The fire dies in the distance, as the embers grow cold

Sing for me now...
All the world is a stage
Smile take a bow,
From your gilded cage...

Behind the glass, she's safe where no one can reach her
Roses with thorns
Just make her bleed
A fragile porcelain angel
Break so easily

The restless heart
Cries when no one is listening
She's waiting for someone
Waiting for you
To want, love and need her
To help her to make it through...
As the moment grows old
In her Gilded Cage...

Toast To Tomorrow Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Come and gather around
Join in the crowd
Singing the songs that we know
We'll drink a toast to tomorrow and one to days long ago

We will dance through the night
In the candlelight
Warmed by the fires glow

And we'll follow the stars
No matter how far
Wherever the wind may blow...

When the sun starts to rise
We will not hide our eyes
We'll greet her with a kiss hello...

All the memories we'll share
Greet us everywhere
Along life's twisting road...

Come and gather around
Join in the crowd
Singing the songs that we know
We'll drink a toast to tomorrow and one to days long ago

Rainbow Eyes Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

She's been gone since yesterday
Oh I didn't care
Never cared for yesterdays
Fancies in the air

No sighs or mysteries
She lay golden in the sun
No broken harmonies
But I've lost my way
She had rainbow eyes
Rainbow eyes
Rainbow eyes

Love should be a simple blend
A whispering on the shore
No clever words you can't defend
They lead to never more

No sighs or mysteries
She lay golden in the sun
No broken harmonies
But I've lost my way
She had rainbow eyes
Rainbow eyes
Rainbow eyes

Summer nights are colder now
They've taken down the fair
And all the lights have died somehow
Or were they ever there

No sighs or mysteries
She lay golden in the sun
No broken harmonies
But I've lost my way
She had rainbow eyes

The Circle Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

I've been here for a million years
Through the joy, through the tears
But when I am gone this will go on
And the circle starts again...

I've watched the mountains rise from dust
Saw the gold return to rust
I had cried when the oceans died
And the circle starts again...

Ohhh...
Ahhh...

I was here when the world began to turn
Kissed the sun as it started to burn
The whispering at the reckoning said
"The circle starts again"

The moon was rising from above
I caught her eye and thought it was love
But she turned her back, the sky went black
And the circle starts again...

Ohhh...
Ahhh...

I danced through castles made of stone
Walked the desert sands alone
In the midnight hour you feel the power
And the circle starts again...

Now the question falls to you, my friend
No begining has no end
Will we ever learn, will the world still turn,
Will the circle start again?

Ohhh...
Ahhh...

Sister Gypsy Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

And she danced through the wood
Like a gypsy girl should,
And she laughed in the face of the fire
Under the black velvet skies
With the moon in her eyes,
Head held high, tambourine held higher.

And she laughed at the fools
Who played by the rules
And she wondered just what would have been,
If she set them all free
Into her fantasy.
Free to dance through the woods again.

A dangerous game
To know her name,
She was wild, she was free
She was calling to me,
Sister Gypsy we're one and the same.

And she danced through the trees
For those who believed
She she was one with the earth and the sky,
In a moment she's gone
But her memory lives on
Like a shooting star through the night.

A dangerous game
To know her name,
She was wild, she was free
She was calling to me,
Sister Gypsy we're one and the same

I can see her in you
Kindred spirits are few,
When you find one you hold on for good,
And if you lose your way
If you path goes astray,
She will lead you back to the wood.

A dangerous game
To know her name,javascript:void(0)
She was wild, she was free
She was calling to me,
Sister Gypsy we're one and the same.

She was wild, she was free
She was calling to me
Sister Gypsy we're one and the same..

Can't Help Falling In Love Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Wise men say
Only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you

Shall I stay?
Would it be a sin?
'Cause I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be

Take my hand
Take my whole life too
'Cause I can't help falling in love with you

Shall I stay? Would it be a sin?
'Cause I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be

Take my hand
Take my whole life too
Though I can't help falling in love with you
No I can't help falling in love with you
No I can't help falling in love with you

Peasant's Promise

One warm summer night
He rode into sight
On a wild mare that was so perfectly white
I'd dreamed he'd return
and I was right
Wishes can come true when you wish with all your might...

One look in his eyes
I had realized
His life was so simple he had no disguise
He lived day to day, no promise he would stay
But in these few words he stole my heart away

He said:
"My life's not to lead
Through power or greed
I am but a poor man
when I'm cut I bleed
A more humble man you never will meet
And here is my heart for only you to keep..."

In the shade of the willow tree
My poor peasant promised to me

No scholarly thoughts, he couldn't pay high costs
And sometimes it feels like he's totally lost
But he said this true and he said it loud
"I promise you my heart with this solemn vow..."

One warm summer night
He rode out of sight
On a wild mare that was so perfectly white
I'd dreamed he'd return and I was right
Wishes can come true when you wish with all your might...

In the shade of the willow tree
My poor peasant promised to me.

In the shade of the willow tree
My poor peasant promised to me.

Far Far Away Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

She passes the days one after the other
She never sees, she never hears
Counting the hours, her life is a rerun
A series of failures rolled into one.

When she was young she looked towards the future
Eyes full of promise, a heart filled with joy
How had her road twisted so harshly
Can these two women be one and the same?

Once she dreamed of romance
Once she imagined she lived in a castle
Once she held the world in her hands
Once was a long time ago,
Far far away.

How her mind aches, her life's been a hard one
Filled with such sorrow, no girl should know
How her heart aches, she's loves and she's lost
Some say its better, but she disagrees...

Once she dreamed of romance
Once she imagined she lived in a castle
Once she held the world in her hands,
Once was a long time ago,
Far far away-when she was young
she looked towards the future
Eyes full of promise, a heart filled with joy
How had her road twisted so harshly
Can these two women be one and the same?

She passes the days one after the other...
Looking for answers
Far far away

Far far away
Far far away
Far far away

Empty Words Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

I have heard that eyes can reflect the soul
And pictures tell a thousand stories
But when I look at you
Why don't I feel it's true
There's so much said in empty words

There are people talking everywhere I look
No one saying what they mean
Still they talk anyway
When there's nothing to say
There's so much said in empty words

I've heard it all so many times
I still try to believe
But you give it away
With the things you don't say
There's so much said in empty words

I've heard it all so many times
I still try to believe
But you give it away
With the things you don't say
There's so much said in empty words

You've listened, but you never heard
There's so much said in empty words

Hark The Herald Angels Sing / Come All Ye Faithful Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Hark the herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled"
Joyful, all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With the angelic host proclaim:
"Christ has come to Bethlehem"

I Saw Three Ships Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day in the morning.

Pray, wither sailed those ships all three,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
Pray, wither sailed those ships all three,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

O they sailed into Bethlehem,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
O they sailed into Bethlehem,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

And all the bells on earth shall ring,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
And all the bells on earth shall ring,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

And all the souls on earth shall sing,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
And all the souls on earth shall sing,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

Then let us all rejoice again,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
Then let us all rejoice again,
On Christmas Day in the morning

I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day in the morning.

I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day in the morning.

Good King Wenceslas Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel
When a poor man came in sight
Gath'ring winter fuel

"Hither, page, and stand by me
If thou know'st it, telling
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?"
"Sire, he lives a good league hence
Underneath the mountain
Right against the forest fence
By Saint Agnes' fountain."

"Bring me bread and bring me wine
Bring me pine logs hither
Thou and I will see him dine
When we bear him thither."
Page and monarch forth they went
Forth they went together
Through the rude wind's wild lament
And the bitter weather

In his master's steps he trod
Where the snow lay dinted
Heat was in the very sod
Which the Saint had printed
Therefore, every men, be sure
Wealth or rank possessing
Ye who now will bless the poor
Shall yourselves find blessing

Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel
When a poor man came in sight
Gath'ring winter fuel

Lord Of The Dance / Simple Gifts Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

I danced in the morning when the world had begun
I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun
I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth
At Bethlehem I had my birth

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, wherever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

'Tis the gift to be simple,
'tis the gift to be free.
'Tis the gift to come down
where we ought to be.
And when we find ourselves
in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley
of love and delight.

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, wherever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend
we shall not be ashamed.
To turn, turn
will be our delight,
'Till by turning, turning
we come round right.

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, wherever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

I danced in the morning when the world had begun
I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun
I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth
At Bethlehem I had my birth

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, wherever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, wherever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

We Three Kings Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, morr and mountain
Following yonder Star

Frankincense to offer have I
Incense owns a Deity nigh
Prayer and praising, all men raising
Worship Him, God on High

O, star of wonder, star of might
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to the perfect light

Born a babe on Bethlehem's plain
Gold we bring to crown Him again
King forever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign

O, star of wonder, star of might
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to the perfect light

We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, morr and mountain
Following yonder Star

O, star of wonder, star of might
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to the perfect light

Wish You Were Here Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Wish You Were Here
Wish You Were Here...
Me, oh, my country man,
Wish You Were Here...
I Wish You Were Here...
Don't you know, the snow is getting colder,
And I miss you like hell,
And I'm feeling blue...
I've got feelings for you,
Do you still feel the same?
From the first time I laid my eyes on you,
I felt joy of living,
I saw heaven in your eyes...
In yor eyes...
Wish you were here...
Me, oh, my country man,
Wish You Were Here...
I Wish You Were Here...
Don't you know the snow is getting colder,
And I miss you like hell...
And I'm feeling blue...
I miss your laugh, I miss your smile,
I miss everything about you...
Every second's like a minute,
Every minute's like a day
When you're far away...
The snow is getting colder, baby,
I Wish You Were Here...
A battlefield of love and fear,
And I Wish You Were Here...
I've got feelings for you,
From the first time I laid my eyes on you...

Emmanuel Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Oh come oh come Emmanuel
And ransome captive Israel
Who mourns in lonely exile here
Until the face of God appears
Rejoice Rejoice Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, oh Israel

Oh come thou day spring, come and cheer
Thy spirits by thine advent here
And drive away the shades of night
And pierce the clouds and bring us light
Rejoice, rejoice Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, oh Israel

Christmas Eve Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Say goodbye to November
She must be on her way
The cold winds of December
Look like they're here to stay
Me, I'll just count the snowflakes
As they start to fall
Getting lost in the beauty
The magic of it all

And our eyes filled with wonder,
As the reindeer take to flight

Its Christmas eve
Bells will ring
Through the town we gather to sing
Christmas eve
Has begun
Peace and love to everyone

Light the festive candles
Theyll chase the shadows away
Gathering round the yule log
With handfuls of holly
Winter winds will whisper
Through the shivering pines
Never have the stars looked brighter than tonight

We Wish You A Merry Christmas Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Good tidings to you and all of your kin;
Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Good tidings to you and all of your kin;
Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

"The Village Lanterne" (2006)

25 Years Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

25 years since I woke up trembling
25 years since that terrible dream
I could see that the world was crumbling
Nothing is ever as it seems

Tried to run but my feet were frozen
Tried to scream but there was no sound
In my head voices echoing
Girl you should know better by now

Long ago, Far away...
In the midst of yesterday

And you tried so hard to save me
How do you save someone from themselves
All those years, wasted wishes
Drowning in the wishing well...

25 years since I woke up trembling
25 years since that terrible dream
I could see that the world was crumbling
Nothing is ever as it seems

World Of Stone Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Bring to me all of my arrows
Bring to me my crossbow too
I fear we might need them both
Before the night is through

Once a world of glittering hope
This world is not the world we knew
The only light left to shine
Is between me and you

On our own
In a World of Stone
We are not alone

I had once believed in angels
They were everywhere I looked
A gentle hand guiding me
To give more than I took

But I have died a thousand times
Watching all these angels fall
Their lonely eyes haunt me still
We will avenge them all

Bring me mead and bring me ale
To help us face this fight again
Good fortune will shine down on us
Together we will win

And they will never break our spirit
We will never turn and run
And we will rise stronger still
When we stand as one!

Village Lanterne Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Don't shed a tear for me
I stand alone
This path of destiny
Is all my own
Once in the hands of fate
There is no choice
An echo on the wind
You'll hear my voice...

Some choose to fall behind
Some choose to lead
Some choose a golden path
Laden with greed
But it's the noble heart
That makes you strong
And in that heart, I'm with you all along...

The olde village lanterne
Is calling me onward
Leading wherever I roam
The olde village lanterne
A light in the dark
Bringing me closer to home...

So when you think of me
Do so with pride
Honor and bravery
Ruled by my side
And in your memory
I will remain
I will forever be within the flame...

Now at the journey's end
We've traveled far
And all we have to show
Are battle scars
But in the love we shared
We will transcend
And in that love, our journey never ends...

I Guess It Doesn't Matter Anymore Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Standing in the rain
The cold and angry rain
In a long white dress
A girl without a name

She stood beneath the light
Glowing like a candle bright
I guess it doesn't matter anymore

I pulled along the side
And offered her a ride
Like the rolling mist she floated inside
As we pulled away
She had nothing to say
So I guess it doesn't matter anymore

I believe something's can't be explained
They are hidden in the mist and in the silver rain...

The road was long
It ran on
When I heard her singing her silent song
I knew the melody
From my memory
But I guess it Doesn't Matter Anymore

Finally she spoke
Come pull off the road
Saying she was headin' home
I turned and she was gone
I was all alone
So I Guess It Doesn't Matter Anymore

As I turned away
No reason to stay
She had faded back into the grey
A whisper in the trees
You could hear it in the breeze
Say I Guess It Doesn't Matter Anymore

Faerie Queen / Faerie Dance Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Over on the hill
There grows a flower
Growing quicker still
More perfect by the hour
Deep within that flower
Is a tiny chair
All a-fringed with gold
The fairy queen sits there...

It is in her breath
That the wind does blow
It is in her heart
As pure as winter snow
It is in her tears
Crystal raindrops fall
And within her years
That she is in us all...

Oh dark eyes
Help me see
Just one look
She is gone
Look on me
We are one
Fading with the setting sun...

As the willow bows
To her majesty
All the forest flowers
Love her mystery
Who would not admire
Who could not adore
Who does not desire
Who wishes to see more?

St. Teresa Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Sit down on the corner just a little climb
When I make my money got to get my dime
Sit down with her baby wind is full of trash
She bold as the street light dark and sweet as hash

Way down in the hollow leavin' so soon
Oh St. Teresa higher than the moon
Reach down for the sweet stuff when she looks at me
I know any man sees you like I see
Follow down the side street movin' single file
That's where I'll hold you, sleeping like a child

Way down in the hollow, leavin' so soon
Oh, St. Teresa, higher than the moon

Just what I've been needin', feel it rise in me
Every stone a story, like a rosary
Show me my Teresa, just a little climb
When I make my money, got to get my dime

Way down in the hollow, leavin' so soon
Oh, St. Teresa, higher than the moon

Mond Tanz / Child In Time Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Sweet child in time you'll see the line
The line that's drawn between the good and the bad
See the blind man, he's shooting at the world
Bullets flying, ooh they're taking toll
If you've been bad, lord I'll bet you have
And you've been hit by flying lead
You'd better close your eyes, you better bow your head
And wait for the ricochet

Streets Of London Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Have you seen the old man
In the closed-down market
Kicking up the paper,
with his worn out shoes?
In his eyes you see no pride
Hand held loosely at his side
Yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news

Have you seen the old girl
Who walks the streets of London
Dirt in her hair and her clothes in rags?
She's no time for talking,
She just keeps right on walking
Carrying her home in two carrier bags.

In the all night cafe
At a quarter past eleven,
Same old man is sitting there on his own
Looking at the world
Over the rim of his tea-cup,
Each tea lasts an hour
Then he wanders home alone

So how can you tell me you're lonely,
And say for you that the sun don't shine?
Let me take you by the hand and walk you through
the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind

Have you seen the old man
Outside the Seaman's Mission
Memory fading with the medals that he wears
In our winter city,
The rain cries a little pity
For one more forgotten hero
And a world that doesn't care

Just Call My Name (I'll Be There) Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

So many nights I sat here waiting
There were times I couldn't go on
Still my heart was anticipating
It made me be strong
Made me hold on...

There were some calling me crazy
I've been accused of being naive
But I don't need no one to save me
Cause I got you, you make me believe

I'll Be There in the night when you need me
Just call my name
I'll be there close your eyes and you'll see me
Just Call My Name

I don't need to know the answers
I don't want to understand
We were born to take the chances
I know the truth when you hold my hand...

I had waited a lifetime lost on the open sea
Praying for an angel to be sent to me

Now the night don't last forever
Every moment is a song
Cause we face the night together
Something so right could never be wrong

Olde Mill Inn Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Down at the Olde Mill Inn
We'll laugh and dance and sing
We'll drink all day and Bill will pay
Down at the Olde Mill Inn

Down at the Olde Mill Inn
The ships are sailing in,
We'll drink a toast with Judy our host
Down at the Olde Mill Inn

The moon is full, the bar is too, when we come to town
We'll have a beer, cause Jerry's here, so spread the cheer around....

Down at the Olde Mill Inn
The bartenders name is Kim
And with a smile she'll serve in style
Down at the Olde Mill Inn...

Down at the Olde Mill Inn
We'll laugh and dance and sing
We'll drink all day and Bill will pay
Down at the Olde Mill Inn

Down at the Olde Mill Inn
We'll laugh and dance and sing
We'll drink and play the hours away...
Down at the Olde Mill Inn..

Windmills Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Far from the worn path of reason
Further away from the sane
He battles his shadows and demons
Fighting to light the way

And the dust and the dirt cloud his vision
Onward he rides unafraid
He fights the good fight for good reason
A star that refuses to fade

Still he braves his path...
Windmills only laugh

She was wounded and wild when he found her
He saw her through child's eyes
She fell for the spell he was under
Each day a brand new surprise

And she watches with strange curiosity
She wants so much to believe
Hoping to break the chains of reality
Dying to set herself free

Though he may appear tattered and broken
His clothes are shabby and bare
Still he glows like the flame of a candle
With passion of one who still cares

There was always a rhyme to the reason
Peering out from tired eyes
The truth finally came in treason
So wrong, but so justified...
So wrong but so justified...
Windmills close their eyes

Street Of Dreams Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

I heard the sound of voices in the night
Spellbound there was someone calling and
I looked around no one was in sight
Fall down and I kept on falling

I've seen this place before
When you were standing by my side
I've seen your face before tonight
Maybe I just see what I want it to be
I know it's a mystery

Do you remember me on the street of dreams
Running through my memory
On the street of dreams

There you stood a distant memory
So good like we never parted
Said to myself I knew you'd set me free
But here we are right back where we started and

Something's come over me
And I don't know what to feel
Maybe this fantasy is real
Now I know I see what I want it to be
I know it's a mystery

Do you remember me on the street of dreams
Running through my memory
On the street of dreams

Something's come over me
And I don't know what to feel no
Maybe this fantasy is real
Now I know I see what I want it to be
I know it's a mystery

Do you remember me on the street of dreams
Running through my memory
On the street of dreams
I can hear you calling me
On the street of dreams

Once In A Garden Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Once in a garden where dreams could be found
Once children's laughter was the only sound
No worries troubles were few

Once in garden where innocence rang pure and true
Once on a hilltop beneath the old tree
Swings made of tires made us feel so free

The butterflies kissed our hair
Once on a hilltop I still see us right there
Hours of make believe playing in the sun
Dreaming with wonder, "What would we become?"

Hours of make believe playing in the sun
Dreaming with wonder, "What would we become?"
My best friend cold in my hand
We'd run by the sea through castles of sand

Once in a forest just like Robin Hood
Flowers were our playmates we only saw good
In everything be it right or wrong
Once in a garden I still can hear our song

Can you hear our song?
Can you hear our song?

"Ghost Of A Rose" (2003)

Cartouche Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

If I share this with you never speak a word
They would never understand if they ever heard
Gemini, Capricorn, rising in the east
Dancing through the witchwood we began to sing...

In between dark and light in the underworld
Wrapped around your finger like a string of pearls
Smiling face, empty hand, 7 golden rings
Dancing through the starlight we began to sing...

Ahh, still I hear the whisper..."Cartouche"...

Caramel colored leaves spiral in the air
Diving right into the ground 'round the winding stair
Stories carved out of wood, jester and the king
Dancing through the moonlight, we began to sing

Ahh, still I hear the whisper..."Cartouche"...

Memories, black and white, hide behind the glass
In the mirrors and the smoke, its all fading fast
Written word, turn the card winter into spring
Dancing through the witchwood we began to sing...

Ahh, Ahh, still I hear the whisper..."Cartouche"...

Way To Mandalay Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

I wandered down the pathway, through the misty moor
Like I knew he did a thousand times before
Voices seem to echo "Come talk with me a while
Just around the corner, just another mile..."

I had heard the stories, her legend served her well
A mystic's myth or fable, truth or fairy tale
A raggle taggle gypsy , with a toothless smile
Said "Sit with me my darling, let's talk a little while..."

And the road goes on, seeming ever longer on the Way to
Mandalay
And the road goes on, forever will I wander on the Way to
Mandalay...

The mile went on forever, the minutes turned to days
Could I have been misguided by the mystic's ways?
The moment lasts forever, at least it does for me
Caught between what happened and what could never be...

3 Black Crows Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

3 black crows were sitting on a fence
Watching the world pass them by
Laughing at humanity and its pretense
Wondering where next to fly...

And they cackled in joy and dove through the air
Like the winds of a hurricaine
And they spread their wings as if to declare
"Onward , let freedom ring!"

3 black crows were sitting on a fence
Watching the world pass them by

3 black crows are sitting in a tree
Looking down on mankind
Loving how it feels to be so free
Leaving us far behind...

And they cackled in joy and dove through the air
Like the winds of a hurricaine
And they spread their wings as if to declare
"Onward , let freedom ring!"

3 black crows are sitting in a tree
Watching the world pass them by

And they cackled in joy and dove through the air
Like the winds of a hurricaine
And they spread their wings as if to declare
"Onward , let freedom ring!"

Diamonds And Rust Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Well I'll be damned
Here comes your ghost again
But that's not unusual
It's just that the moon is full
And you happened to call

And here I sit
My hand on the telephone
Hearing a voice I'd known
A couple of light years ago
Heading straight for a fall

As I remember your eyes
Were bluer than robin's eggs
My poetry was lousy you said
Where are you calling from?
A booth in the midwest

Ten years ago
I bought you some cufflinks
Oh and you brought me something
We both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust

Well you burst on the scene
Already a legend
The unwashed phenomenon
The original vagabond
You strayed into my arms

And there you stayed
Temporarily lost at sea
The Madonna was yours for free
Yes the girl on the half-shell
Would keep you unharmed

Now I see you standing
With leaves falling around
And snow in your hair
Now you're smiling out the window
Of that hotel
Over Washington Square
Our breath comes out white clouds
Mingles and hangs in the air
Speaking strictly for me
We both could have died then and there

Now you're telling me
You're not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You are always so good with words
And at keeping things vague

Because I need some of that vagueness now
It's all coming back too clearly
Oh I loved you dearly
And if you're offering me diamonds and rust
I've already paid

Diamonds and rust
Diamonds and rust
Diamonds and rust

Queen For A Day (Part 1) Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

A featherbed to rest my head
On roses would I lay
A full moon would glow every night
And summer would be every day
We'd dance and sing all afternoon
And rain would wash troubles away
Every wish would be granted for me
If I could be Queen for a Day...

The finest horse, the color of night
The likes you never did see
Silver stars and firelight and candles would burn just for me
We'd dance and sing all afternoon
And rain would wash troubles away
Every wish would be granted for me
If I could be Queen for a Day...

And when the night grew cold and dark and worries ran too deep
Angels would surround my bed and carry me off to sleep
We'd dance and sing all afternoon
And rain would wash troubles away
Every wish would be granted for me
If I could be Queen for a Day...

Ivory Tower Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

I stood upon the Ivory Tower
As far as I could see
The winds that grew from out of the trees were calling out to me
Curtains blew in the Ivory Tower
Willows start to bend
The ravens flew to escape the fury as the storm descends...

I followed fortune 'round the tower
Searching in vain
For through the mist 'round the old stone tower I only found rain
And though the cold, cold Ivory Tower was stony through and through
I laid and dreamed on a featherbed, my dream was of you
My dream was of you...

All time waiting
As the sun doth set in the haze
All time waiting
Every hour feels like a day...oh...

I feared not in the Ivory Tower
Imprisonment you'll find
Lies within your heart your soul, your spirit and your mind
It lies within your heart, your soul, your spirit and your mind...

Ghost Of A Rose Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

The valley green was so serene
In the middle ran a stream so blue...
A maiden fair, in despair, once had met her true love there and she told him...
She would say...
"Promise me, when you see, a white rose you'll think of me
I love you so,
Never let go,
I will be your ghost of a rose..."

Her eyes believed in mysteries
She would lay amongst the leaves of amber
Her spirit wild, heart of a child, yet gentle still and quiet and mild and he loved her...
When she would say...
"Promise me, when you see, a white rose you'll think of me
I love you so,
Never let go,
I will be your ghost of a rose..."

When all was done, she turned to run
Dancing to the setting sun as he watched her
And ever more he thought he saw
A glimpse of her upon the moors forever
He'd hear her say...
"Promise me , when you see, a white rose you'll think of me
I love you so,
Never let go,
I will be your ghost of a rose..."

Loreley Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Merrily we sailed along
Though the waves were plenty strong
Down the twisting river Rhine
Following a song...

Legend's faded storyline
Tried to warn us all
Oh, they called her "Loreley"
Careful or you'll fall...

Oh, the stories we were told
Quite a vision to behold
Mysteries of the seas in her eyes of gold...
Laying on the silver stone, such a lonely sight
Barnacles become a throne, my poor Loreley...

And the winds would cry, and many men would die
And all the waves would bow down to the Loreley...
And the winds would cry, and many men would die
And all the waves would bow down to the Loreley...

You would not believe your eyes, how a voice could hypnotize
Promises are only lies from Loreley
In a shade of mossy green, seashell in her hand
She was born the river queen, ne'er to grace the land...

And the winds would cry, and many men would die
And all the waves would bow down to the Loreley...
And the winds would cry, and many men would die
And all the waves would bow down to the Loreley...

Oh, the song of Loreley
Charms the moon right from the sky...
She will get inside your mind, loveley Loreley...
When she cries "Be with me until the end of time"
You know you will ever be with your Loreley...

And the winds would cry, and many men would die
And all the waves would bow down to the Loreley...'
And the winds would cry, and many men would die
And all the waves would bow down to the Loreley...
And the winds would cry, and many men would die
And all the waves would bow down to the Loreley...

Where Are We Going From Here Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

On a long road, miles to go
Its winding and cold and its covered with snow
But I ask you what we all want to know
Where are we going from here...

Lines on my face, lines on my hands
Lead to a future I don't understand
Some things don't go as they're planned...
Where are we going from here...

Tracing the trails through the mirrors of time
Spinning in circles with riddles in rhyme
We lose our way, trying to find
Searching to find our way home...
Trying to find our way home...

As the day dies, with tears in our eyes
There's too few hellos and too many goodbyes
Silence answers our cries...where are we going from here...

We're all on this road, with miles to go
Braving new pathways into the unknown
But who do you ask, when no one really knows
Where we are going from here...

Rainbow Blues Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

The rain wasn't made of water
The snow didn't have a place in the sun
So we slipped behind the rainbow
And laid back till we had done

And then the rain wasn't made of water
And the snow didn't have a place in the sun
So we slipped behind the rainbow
And laid back till we had done

Through northern lights on back streets
I told the coachman "just drive me on
It's the same old destination
But a different world to sing upon"
So he threw back his head and he counted
I got out about five to nine
And I waved at the stage door-keeper
Said "mister, get me to the stage on time"

And then the rain wasn't made of water
And the snow didn't have a place in the sun
So we slipped behind the rainbow
And laid back till we had done

I packed my ammunition
Inside the crowd was shouting "encore"
But I had a most funny feeling
It wasn't me they were shouting for
So when the tall dark lady smiled at me
I said "oh baby let us go for a ride"
And we came upon two drinks or four
And popped them oh so neatly inside

And then the rain wasn't made of water
And the snow didn't have a place in the sun
So we slipped behind the rainbow
And laid back till we had done

Let me pack you deep in my suitcase
Oh there's sure to be room for two
Or you can drive me to the airplane
But don't let me catch those rainbow blues

And then the rain wasn't made of water
And the snow didn't have a place in the sun
So we slipped behind the rainbow
And laid back till we had done

So then the rain wasn't made of water
And the snow didn't have a place in the sun
So we slipped behind the rainbow
And laid back till we had done

The rain wasn't made of water
The snow didn't have a place in the sun
The rain wasn't made of water
The snow didn't have a place in the sun

Dandelion Wine Lyrics – Blackmore’s Night

Where has the time gone...it seems to fly so fast
One moment you're having fun, the next its come to pass
Days turn into yesteryear, old friends find their own way
Until the moment you leave...I wish that you would stay...

So here's to you, all our friends, surely we will meet again
Don't stay away too long this time
We'll raise a glass, maybe two
And we'll be thinkng of you
Until our paths cross again...maybe next time...

Let's laugh at the memories, and talk all afternoon
Let's remember the moments that leave us all too soon
We'll smile at the pictures still lingering in our minds
When you're reminiscing, then all you need is time...

Tracing faded photographs, a scrapbooks lonely charm
Pressed flowers and dreams we had, our fingerprint on time
The 1st moment we ever met, when your eyes met mine...
I remember the summers of Dandelion Wine...
