Such a sad song, yet not completely - clearly from the point of view of someone who lived in a way he enjoyed. Someday I want to see the actual Skellig Michael island that inspired this piece...

Part 3: And all their mysteries

Now take the hourglass
And turn it on its head
For when the sands are still
'Tis then you'll find me dead

O light the candle, John
The daylight is almost gone
The birds have sung their last
The bells call all to mass.

Part 2 of the original lyrics:
I knew the tempest's blood
Its wrath I would endure
And so the years went by
Within my rocky cell
With only a mouse or bird
My friend; I loved them well
And so it came to pass
I'd come here to Romani
And many a year it took
Till I arrived here with thee
On dusty roads I walked
And over mountains high
Through rivers running deep
Beneath the endless sky
Beneath these jasmine flowers
Amidst these cypress trees
I give you now my books

The original lyrics are:
O light the candle, John
The daylight has almost gone
The birds have sung their last
The bells call all to mass

Sit here by my side
For the night is very long
There's something I must tell
Before I pass along

I joined the brotherhood
My books were all to me
I scribed the words of God
And much of history

Many a year was I
Perched out upon the sea
The waves would wash my tears,
The wind, my memory

I'd hear the ocean breathe
Exhale upon the shore

...and then she proceeds to sing exquisitely.

So that's what she sounds like when she speaks!

None of her songs have the lyrics written :"(

In this version she changes some of the words from the original on The Book of Secrets. Both versions of lyrics are beautiful but I like the music and vocals better in the studio recording.
