Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on

There are visions, there are memories
There are echoes of thundering hooves
There are fires, there is laughter
There's the sound of a thousand doves

Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on

In the velvet of the darkness
By the silhouette of silent trees
They are watching, they are waiting
They are witnessing life's mysteries

Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on

Cascading stars on the slumbering hills
They are dancing as far as the sea
Riding o'er the land, you can feel it's gentle hand
Leading on to it's destiny

Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on

Take me with you on this journey
Where the boundaries of time are now tossed
In cathedrals of the forest
In the words of the tongues now lost

Find the answers, ask the questions
Find the roots of an ancient tree
Take me dancing, take me singing
I'll ride on till the moon meets the sea

Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on

Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on

    Feel like i m on the road through the mountain at night, a endless road. Just going and going, think of a new discovery. A nice moonlight scenery is everywhere.

    One looking out of a train on a night ride across the caucasus, has images of ancient scenes cross their mind (whether they be of ancient songs that mckennitt has written or of actual scenes from ancient times, i'll let others decide).

    The journey of discovery, the memories of ones before us forming to what are to us only legends, the sanctity of natures ethereal realms, and the desire to take this never ending journey with the one you love most, no regrets.
