A clouded dream on an earthly night
Hamgs upon the crescent moon
A voiceless song in an ageless light
Sings at the coming dawn
Birds in flight are calling there
Where the heart moves the stones
It's there that my heart is longing
All for the love of you

A painting hangs on an ivy wall
Nestled in the emerrald moss
The eyes declare a truce of trust
Where deep in the desert twilight
Sand melts in pools of the sky
Darkness lays her crimson cloak
Your lamps will call me home
And so it's there my homage's due
Clutched by the still of the night
Now I feel you move
And every breath is full
So it's there my homage's due
Clutched by the still of the night
Even the distance feels so near
All for the love of you

A clouded dream on an earthly night
Hangs upon the crescent moon
A voiceless song in an ageless light
Sings at the coming dawn
Birds in flight are calling there
Where the heart moves the stones
It's there that my heart is longing
All for the love of you

    General CommentI love this song. Loreena has such a good voice. I remember hearing it on Pure Moods II and then again on the Mist of Avalon that was on TBS or TNT or some cable channel like that. Really great song.

    General CommentThis was my intro to loreena - and what a song! That magical introduction especially, with her voice layering over the choir. I see this as about someone who has become lost in a mystical experience and is finding the emotion of love to hold onto.

    General CommentI think this song is amazing, but personally i find it very powerful and strong, It makes me want to raise myself up, hold my head high and face the world =]. One of the most likely reasons for this is that i heard it first on this video, it doesn't have much incommon with the lyrics but it fits so well and it makes it so much more powerful, you should all watch it =] youtube.com/…
