Music Video

The video for the song is known for being kind of random: Enya’s eyes glow and she blows up a car with her finger. As it wasn’t featured on any of the video collections, it can be obtained only by buying ‘The Celts’ documentary dvd. Arguably, it’s the most entertaining piece of the whole thing :)

Dawn breaks; there is blue in the sky.
Your face before me
Though I don’t know why.
Thoughts disappearing like tears from the Moon.

Waiting here, as I sit by the stone,
They came before me
Those men from the Sun.
Signs from the heavens say I am the one.

Now you’re here, I can see your light,
this light that I must follow.
You, you may take my life away, so far away.
Now I know I must leave your spell
I want tomorrow.
