Who can tell me if we have heaven,
Who can say the way it should be;
Moonlight holly, the Sappho Comet,
Angel's tears below a tree.

You talk of the break of morning
As you view the new aurora,
Cloud in crimson, the key of heaven,
One love carved in acajou.

One told me of China Roses,
One a thousand nights and one night,
Earth's last picture, the end of evening
Hue of indigo and blue.

A new moon leads me to
Woods of dreams and I follow.
A new world waits for me;
My dream, my way.

I know that if I have heaven
There is nothing to desire.
Rain and river, a world of wonder
May be paradise to me.

I see the sun.
I see the stars.

    General CommentWhen I hear this song, I think of two people in live dancing. Maybe it's a couple on thier wedding day. They're so happy and filled with love for the other that they don't care about the world around them.

    "A new moon leads me to
    Woods of dreams and I fallow;
    A new world wiats for me;
    My dream, my way."

    BTW: I think that insted of
    "One told me of China Roses",
    it's
    "You told me of China Roses".

    This is my favorite Enya song.
