The Queen of Light took her bow and then she turned to go
The Prince of Peace embraced the gloom and walked the night alone
Oh, dance in the dark of night, sing to the morning light
The dark Lord rides in force tonight and time will tell us all, hoh
Oh, throw down your plow and hoe, rest not to lock your homes
Side by side, we wait the night of the darkest of them all
Oh-ooh-whoa, ooh-whoa-oh-oh

I hear the horses' thunder down in the valley below
I'm waiting for the angels of Avalon, waiting for the eastern glow

The apples of the valley hold the seeds of happiness
The ground is rich from tender care, repay, do not forget, no, no
Oh, dance in the dark of night, sing to the morning light
The apples turn to brown and black, the tyrant's face is red
Oh, war is the common cry, pick up your swords and fly
The sky is filled with good and bad that mortals never know
Now, oh-ho, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahh/Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh-ooh-oh-oh

Oh, well, the night is long, the beads of time pass slow
Tired eyes on the sunrise waiting for the eastern glow

The pain of war cannot exceed the woe of aftermath
The drums will shake the castle wall, the Ringwraiths ride in black, ride on
Sing as you raise your bow, shoot straighter than before
No comfort has the fire at night that lights the face so cold
Oh, dance in the dark of night, sing to the mornin' light
The magic runes are writ in gold to bring the balance back
Bring it back

At last the sun is shining the clouds of blue roll by
With flames from the dragon of darkness, the sunlight blinds his eyes
Ah-oh-ho, ooh, ooh-ooh, aaah/oooh-ooh-ooh-uh-uhh

Bring it back, bring it back, a-bring it back, bring it back
Bring it back, bring it back, bring it back, bring it back
Oh, now, oh, now, oh, now, oh, oh, now, oh, now, oh, now
Bring it back, bring it back, bring it back, a-bring it back
Whoa, now, oh, now, oh, now, oh, whoa, now, oh, now, oh, now
Bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it
Bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it
Bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it
