Blackmore’s Night – Darker shade of black

All Music

Darker Shade of Black, I Got You Babe, Will o’ the Wisp

I Got You Babe
They say we’re young and we don’t know
We won’t find out until we grow
I don’t know if all that’s true
‘Cause you got me and, baby, I’ve got you

Babe
I’ve got you, babe
I’ve got you, babe
I’ve got you, babe

They say our love won’t pay the rent
Before it’s earned, our money’s all been spent
Well, I guess that’s so, we don’t have a pot
But at least I’m sure of all the things we got

Babe
I’ve got you, babe
I’ve got you, babe
I’ve got you, babe

I got flowers in the spring
I got you to wear my ring
And when I’m sad, you’re a clown
And if I get scared, you’re always around

So let them say your hair’s too long
I don’t care, with you I can’t go wrong
So put your loving hand in mine
Ain’t no hill or mountain we can’t climb

Babe
I’ve got you, babe
I’ve got you, babe
I’ve got you, babe

I’ve got you to hold my hand
I’ve got you to understand
I’ve got you to walk with me
I’ve got you to talk with me

I’ve got you to kiss goodnight
I’ve got you to hold me tight
I’ve got you, I can’t let go
I’ve got you to love me so

I’ve got you, babe
I’ve got you, babe
I’ve got you, babe
I’ve got you, babe

Will O’ The Wisp

Walking by the castle ruins
Lit my just the crescent moon
This night was the fairest fair
That eyes did behold

There the forest round us stood
On the outskirts of the wood
Was a path to lead me
Where I longed to go

With every step my heart beat fast
As if a doorway to the past
And dreams that weren’t meant to last
Had come alive

And in that dark, the dead of night
I thought I saw a flickering light
Dancing in and out of sight
Singing this song

It lead me to the ancient rocks
Magic within mystery
In them every secret locked
For eternity

Then the lights, they faded out
But the magic still remains
‘Though overgrown is the path
I still see the flame
