When the moon on a cloud cast night
Hung above the tree tops' height
You sang me of some distant past
That made my heart beat strong and fast
Now I know I'm home at last

You offered me an eagle's wing
That to the sun I might soar and sing
And if I heard the owl's cry
Into the forest I would fly
And in its darkness find you by.

And so our love's not a simple thing
Nor our truths unwavering
But like the moon's pull on the tide
Our fingers touch our hearts collide
I'll be a moonsbreath by your side

    General CommentThe correct spelling is "Samhain". It's pronounced "sow-ane" and is the Pagan version of Halloween.

    General CommentThere is not exactly a pagan version of Halloween, it's already a pagan holiday. One of the few holidays the christianity has nto attempted a hostile takeover of, it has jsut been softened up a bit.

    General CommentThe fact of you asking the such a question shows you know not your own history (I presume you are mr/mrs Christan?). Read books written by someone other than people with an agenda to hide what early Christians had done to promote the "one true god".

    General Commenti love loreena's work... so beautiful... i listen to it when i'm going to sleep, when i'm meditating, and during rituals. this song especially.

    i wouldn't say they have taken over holidays in a hostile way... they have taken over much in a hostile way, yes, but not really holidays. even though they're extremely hypocritical. they try to shun pagan beliefs and holidays and yet they have borrowed -- or stolen? -- them & just changed them a bit.

    but anyways! this is for comments on songs, not a religious battlefield. :P
