Fires At Midnight

Album: Fires At Midnight (2001)
  • I stood out here once before
    With my head held in my hands
    For all that I had known of this place
    I could never understand...

    On the hills the fires burned at midnight
    Superstition plagued the air
    Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
    The stars are out and magic is here...

    I wished on the seven sisters
    Bring to me wisdom of age
    All that's locked within the book of secrets
    I longed for the knowledge of the sage...

    On the hills the fires burned at midnigth
    Superstition plagued the air
    Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
    Stars are out and magic is here
    The stars are out and magic is here...

    So, the sisters smiled to themselves
    And they whispered as they shone
    And it was from that very instant
    I knew I would never be alone...

    While on the hills
    The fires burned at midnight
    Superstition plagued the air
    Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
    Stars are out and magic is here
    The stars are out and magic is here...

    Many stars were long forgotten
    Many faded and became ghosts
    Still my sisters glittered down from heaven
    Always there when I neede them most...

    And on the hills the fires burned at nidnight
    Superstition plagued the air
    Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
    Stars are out and magic is here
    The stars are out magic is here...

    I stood out here once before
    With my head held in my hands
    For all that I had known of this place
    I could never understand

    On the hills the fires burned at midnight
    Superstition plagued the air
    Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
    Stars are out and magic is here
    The stars are out magic is here
    The stars are out magic is here
    The stars are out magic is here
