  • Light up with me, my dear,
    Light up
    Under stormy night, tell nobody

    My brother, where do you intend to go tonight?
    I heard that you missed your connecting flight,
    To the Blue Ridge Mountains, over near Tennessee

    You're ever welcome with me any time you like,
    Let's drive to the country side,
    Leave behind some green-eyed look-a-likes,
    So no one gets worried, no
    So no one gets worried, no

    But, Sean, don't get callous,
    I'm sure it'll be fine
    I love you, I love you,
    Oh brother of mine

    In the quivering forest,
    Where the shivering dog rests,
    Our good grandfather
    Built a wooden nest
    And the river got frozen,
    And the hole got snowed in,
    And the yellow moon glowed bright
    Till the morning light

    Terrible am I, child?
    Even if you don't mind

    In the quivering forest,
    Where the shivering dog rests,
    Our good grandfather
    Built a wooden nest
    And the river got frozen,
    And the home got snowed in,
    And the yellow moon glowed bright
    Till the morning light

    Terrible am I, child?
    Even if you don't mind,

  • Kristin from Atlanta, GaThis song is so beautiful and peaceful, its overwhelming. It something to listen to when you're having a hard day and most definitely on a camping trip or a nature walk for your ipod.
