Damh The Bard – Samhain Eve lyrics

Close the door, keep out the storm,
Far away, far away,
Keep the need-fires burning til dawn,
Oh, leave my soul.
For the cold will come this night,
From far away, far away,
Frost will fall, and ice will bite,
Oh leave my soul.

Bridge 1:
Oh leave my soul,
Please pass me by when the evening falls,
Oh blessed are we,
The Taker of Souls we shall see.
On Samhain Eve.

I can hear the Hunter's hounds
Far away, far away,
I will cast the Circle round,
Oh leave my soul.
Raven-witch I feel your breath,

Far away, far away,
Bringing with you Summer's death,
Oh leave my soul.

Sunrise, the tolling bell,
Far away, far away,
Breaks the Raven-witches spell,
Oh blessed are we.
The leaves of the Oaken King,
Fade away, fade away,
Feed the seeds that will come in Spring
Oh blessed are we.

Bridge 2:
Oh blessed are we,
Summer will come with the May on the tree,
Oh hail to the Queen,,
And under the Sun we shall sing,
To call in the Spring.

    There some wrong phrases in this translation for example the taker of souls we shall see. Wrong. He sings hunter of souls. Even the part the girl sings is missing. And yeah the meaning is.
    He gets hurt but this woman still wants to away from an unfulfilling life and love but he always gets convinced of her again to keep stuck on her. This song even has a deeper meaning as just being stuck in an unhappy love. You can compare it with a mislead way of life also.
    He wants to get outta this sh*t but her allure doesn't let him. Anyway you can adapt it to many situations in life as it's full of metaphors.
