Year: 1997

Your lips were like a red and ruby chalice
Warmer than the summer night
The clouds were like an alabaster palace
Rising to a snowy height
Each star it's on Aurora Borealis
Suddenly you held me tight
I could see the midnight sun
I can't explain
The silver rain that found me
Or was that a moonlit veil
The music of the Universe 
Around me
Or was that a nightingale
And then you arms miraculously found me
Suddenly the sky turned pale
I could see the midnight sun
Was there such a night
It's a thrill
I still don't quite believe
But after you were gone
There was still some 
Stardust on my sleeve
The flame of it may dwindle 
To an amber
And the stars forget to shine
And we may see the meadow in December
Icy, wide and cristaline
But oh my darling always I'll remember
When your lips were close to mine
And we saw the Midnight Sun
The Midnight Sun
