lyrics

Midnight on All Hallows’
Eve
I came upon a tavern
And the rain held me
down
In this medieval town
With my spirit as dim
As this lantern

But there in the corner
A figure disguised
That spoke down in
whispers
By dim candlelight
From under his cloak
He then offered some gold
To the goblin he spoke
A legend foretold

Of clockwork and castles
And horses to ride
With the thrill of the chase
In the dead of the night
And a world full of magic
Like never I’ve known
In this everyday life
Of Manchester Stone

You don’t understand
I was curious
And he didn’t know
The life I have had
To be furious

I was hungry and cold
And delirious
And he didn’t know
A girl could be bold
And mysterious
So I said

Whatever the risk
I am willing
Whatever the danger
I’ll ride
And if ever you think
I was never made for
adventure
Then leave it to fate
To decide

Send me Rhiannon
For a gamble in
Endless skylines and
Blood lake fire lines

With a sword in my hand
And a story behind
I can be
The one who defied
Every kind of mind
Who defined

If never I lived
And if always I cried
I’d have died
At the hands of my fears
And a ladder of lies
In the grind

Whatever the risk
I am willing
Whatever the danger
I’ll ride
And if ever you think
I was never made for
adventure
Then leave it to fate
To decide

Midnight on All Hallows’
Eve
I came upon a tavern
And like an old friend
Who stays till the end
We forgave our
complaints
For what matters

The fireplace roared
And the bartender poured
The finest Carpathian ales
Some traded their wares
While the rest of them
shared
The wonder and wealth
Of their tales

Of clockwork and castles
And horses to ride
With the thrill of the chase
In the dead of the night
And a world full of magic
Like I’ve come to know
In this everyday life
Of Manchester Stone
