"Ciaran's Well" as written by Michelle Leonard, Tarja Soile Susanna Turunen, Alex Scholpp and Douglas Arthur Wimbish....
Misty cold nights
You’ll hear her sigh
And sing bitter
sweet lullabies

For years she prayed
The saints would cast
a spell for the
forest to let her go

She sings…
She dreams…
She prays…

She sings…
she plays...
she stays...

Ahh Ahhhh
Ahh Ahhhh

The black old well
Holds ancient tales
And makes all wishes come true
So throw your dream
Into the dark
And Blue will come for you

    General CommentI think that there was an interview that mentioned that this song was based on one of the legends about an actual well in either Scotland or Ireland, I don't remember which at the moment.

    The way I choose to interpret it is that a woman cast a wish on this well and was trapped by it. She haunts the area, wishing for someone to release her from the forest.

    I think the last verse is saying that casting a foolish or selfish wish on the well will give the wisher the same result as the woman.

    My InterpretationI originally interpretted that the ghost of a woman haunts a forest, supposedly where the well is. Only the spell from a holy man or someone of the sort can allow her spirit to go to the other side. From Satakieli's comment, the woman probably made a wish that eventually caused her death... And now she is doomed to haunt the well for all eternity.
