All Soul’s Night

All Soul’s Night
by Loreena McKennitt

Bonfires dot the rolling hillsides
Figures dance around and around

To drums that pulse out echoes of darkness

Moving to the Pagan sound.

Somewhere in a hidden memory
Images float before my eyes

Of fragrant nights of straw and of bonfires

Dancing ’till the next sunrise.

(chorus:)
I can see the lights in the distance

Trembling in the dark cloak of night

Candles and lanterns are dancing, dancing,

A waltz on all soul’s night.

Figures of cornstalks bend in the shadows
Held up tall as the flames leap high

The Green Knight holds the holly bush

To mark where the old year passes by.

(chorus)

Bonfires dot the rolling hillsides
Figures dance around and around

To drums that pulse out echoes of darkness

Moving to the Pagan sound.

Standing on the bridge that crosses
The river that goes out to the sea

The wind is full of a thousand voices

They pass by the bridge and me.
