Linger on, oh waning moon
This midnight hour has come much too soon
By the crystal lake we stand
with our names in the sand
Believe me, my Love
I will wait for you
And I will return
if you still want me, too
With the song of the nightswan
And Ill be in heaven!
The lark heralds the break of day
No longer by my side can you stay
In shrouded mists you disappear
like a ghost bayadere
Where are you my Love?
Im calling your name
This spell can be broke
Love's ignited the flame
Like the song of the nightswan...
Oh, believe me, my Love
I will stand, laying siege to this fortress of time
With the glory of you in my heart
charge before the sun touches the rime
The Beltane fires upon the hill
Your hand in mine by the old water-mill
Fairies sing our wedding song
now the moon lingers on
Stay with me, my Love
my Angel, my Life
I've walked this dark maze
and now we will fly
On the wings of the nightswan...
