white is in the winter night lyrics – enya

have you seen the mistletoe?
it fills the night with kisses.
have you seen the bright new star?
it fills your heart with wishes.
have you seen the candlelight?
it shines from every window.
have you seen the moon above?
it lights the sky in silver.

green is in the mistletoe
and red is in the holly,
silver in the stars above
that shine on everybody.
gold is in the candlelight and
crimson in the embers.
white is in the winter night
that everyone remembers.

have you heard the boys all sigh
when all the girls are skating?
have you heard the sweetheart’s cry
for all this time they’re waiting?

green is in the mistletoe
and red is in the holly,
silver in the stars above
that shine on everybody.
gold is in the candlelight and
crimson in the embers.
white is in the winter night
that everyone remembers.

have you seen the children playing? tiny hands are frozen!
have you seen them hurry home when suddenly it’s snowing!

green is in the mistletoe
and red is in the holly,
silver in the stars above
that shine on everybody.
gold is in the candlelight and
crimson in the embers.
white is in the winter night
that everyone remembers.

have you heard the bells are ringing,
ringing out their story?
have you heard the choir singing?
glory! glory! glory!
