Album: Fires At Midnight (2001)

  • When the sun sets over cherry blossom skies
    And the twilight fills the air
    You can see the snow on the mountain tops
    Through the veil of old Japan...
    On an island lead by all the ancient ways
    Just a million miles from here
    And yet it seems like only yesterday
    That her song rang out so clear...

    Sister of the seas
    Wrapped in silken robes
    Waves are falling at your feet...
    Play your haunted songs to charm the dragon king,
    Winds are calling out your name...

    And the times ran fast, further from that place
    But somehow we are still here
    You can hear her song calling on the waves
    Through the veil of old Japan...

    Sister of the seas
    Wrapped in silken robes
    Waves are falling at your feet...
    Play your haunted songs to charm the dragon king,
    Winds are calling out your name...

    When the sun sets over cherry blossom skies
    And the twilight fills the air
    You can see the snow on the mountain tops
    Through the veil of old Japan...
    Through the veil of old Japan will appear our Benzai-ten...
