Text písně Skellig

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
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
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
