Paul Revere & The Raiders – 1001 Arabian Nights

Once upon a dangerous night
I went looking for her light
Passed the palace guards I crept
All awhile the young girl slept

Midnight rang upon the bells
Telling me that all was well
Through the halls I glide in shadows
To the girl that nobody knows…

In her chamber I am there
Moonlight fingers touched her hair
If I were bold as the moonlight
I could taste her lips on this night

My eyes hungered for her face
So her veil I slowly raised
Though my tongue were cut from me
I would not tell what I did see…

As I closer bent to see
Her eyes opened into me
For eternity we fell
In a whirling magic spell

As I turned to fly away
Her lips opened, bid me stay
But I fled into the shadows
From the girl that nobody knows…
