One dark and enchanted evening
The drapes pulled from the door
With frolicking and flying guests
They entered and again they left
Through the windows and the open cracks
Slipping through the walls and wood and brass

And the room is spinning like we're on a carousel
The smoking candles make it hard to see
If I am to find my love tonight
I am holding out my heart for you to see

Others remained and continued the games
Of riddles and spindles and bottles of wine
A breeze fills the sky
And clears everyone's eyes

And the room is spinning like we're on a carousel
The smoking candles make it hard to see
If I am to find my love tonight
I am holding out my heart for you to see

If I am to find my love tonight
I am holding out my heart for you to see

His vision is like that of a tale from a distant land
Straight from a story of love and glory
So strong he stands as he offers me his hand
And we waltz to the drums of a foreign band

And the room is spinning like we're on a carousel
The smoking candles make it hard to see
If I am to find my love tonight
I am holding out my heart for you to see

Now the room is spinning like we're on a carousel
The smoke has taken us to the fog of the morn
On a sea of love that's bound to be
We are holding up our hearts for you to see
We are holding up our hearts for you to see
