A night of december so dark and cold,
I walked a path ages old
The moon amongst the clouds revealed
lightning valleys, forest and field

Embraced by silence I wandered the moor
an endless landscape by my side
when in the mist I saw a light
dancing through the hazy night

I stood and watched the play in awe
was deeply touched by what I saw
I told my friends what I did see
and what they told did tremble me!

It's said the ghost of a young, fair maid
is cursed to dwell beneath the shade
of the olden oak she died below
O that was many moons ago!

    My InterpretationThe song is about a man (possibly Schwadorf) wondering through the moor, and stumbles upon a "light dancing through the night". He then learns that a girl died there a long, long time ago and her ghost dwells there. I have no idea how Empyrium comes up with this beautiful lyrics.
