about

Written in 1999, and one in which I actually composed part of the instrumental line myself as well as the main melody.

lyrics

Heart meeting heart in the darkness
Like meeting like in the night
Eyes meeting eyes from the shadows
I recognize and I challenge as my right

The Elven Lord and the dancing Leannan Sidhe
He saying “Never will I dance.”
She only smiles and keeps dancing
“Even you” she says “must someday take a chance.”

She spins away on the dance floor
And dances from her heart
Twisting and turning she dances
‘Til even Elven Lords must wish that they were part

“Away” she says “I must go now,
But ere I go think on this…”
In her eyes taunting promise
Of all the passion that not dancing made him miss

“Oh such a small and charming challenge,
But did you win or did you lose?
And even now is it over?
I wonder when we meet again, what will you choose?”
