BEFORE THE TWILIGHT FALLS (FOR BLODEUWEDD)
Music by Brian Sullivan/words by Arthur Hinds
Arrangement Emerald Rose 2005

The crimson sun
dapples the green
leaf and bloom
before me play

Standing alone
I'm half unseen
half unfilled
at dawn of day

Then from the earth
You rise in splendor
source of passion
balance and flame

Both Sun and sky
And I surrender
at your feet my
shield and name.

Before the twilight falls
You and I are bright and green
Before the future calls
You and I stand in between
Fear is a prison, doubt is a wall
kiss me before the twilight falls
Before the twilight falls
Before the twilight falls

Dance of meadow
feathers beating
sing forever
the spiral tune

Live the moment
now is fleeting
join me here
our path is hewn

So stand with me
through joy and tears
testing honor
that holds you thrall

Come take my hand
I take your fears
one last kiss
ere twilight falls

Before the twilight falls
You and I are bright and green
Before the future calls
You and I stand in between
Fear is a prison, doubt is a wall
kiss me before the twilight falls
Before the twilight falls
Before the twilight falls
