THE DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL (LYRICS)
BY LOREENA MCKENNITT

Upon a darkened night
the flame of love
was burning in my breast
And by a lantern bright
I fled my house
while all in quiet rest
Shrouded by the night
and by the secret stair
I quickly fled
The veil concealed my eyes
while all within lay
quiet as the dead
Chorus
Oh night thou was my guide
oh night more loving than the rising sun
Oh night that joined the lover
to the beloved one
transforming
each of them into the other
Upon that misty night
in secrecy,
beyond such mortal sight
Without a guide or light
than that which burned
so deeply in my heart
That fire t'was led me on
and shone more bright
than of the midday sun
To where he waited still
it was a place
where no one else could come
ChorusWithin my pounding heart
which kept itself entirely for him
He fell into his sleep
beneath the cedars
all my love I gave
And by the fortress walls
the wind would brush his hair
against his brow
And with its smoothest
handcaressed my every sense
it would allow
ChorusI lost myself to him
and laid my face upon my lovers breast
And care and grief grew dim
as in the mornings mist became the light
There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair
There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair
There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair
