lyrics

On the darkest of nights
The green heron takes flight
To a symphony of sounds
Nocturnal wonderland

Leave the torches behind
See it all with naked eyes
There’s no need to shine a light
On the wilds of the night

Oh, what it is
To know the dark
Oh, how it feels
To know the dark

Let’s get lost in the forest
Travelled by mysterious wings
Between the lights and worn paths
Where the ancestors sing

On the longest of nights
The green heron takes flight
And we'll dance under her wings
To the sound of our dreams

Oh, what it is
To know the dark
Oh, how it feels
To love the dark

There’s no need to shine a light
On the wilds of the night

Oh, how I yearn
To know the dark
Oh, how I learnt
To love the dark
