When The Dark Night Delivers The Day

“Nocturne” was the winning song in the Eurovision Song Contest 1995, performed in Norwegian by Secret Garden representing Norway. wiki

Wonderful melody. Not so sure what to make of the lyrics but what a lovely tune!

Nocturnes are generally thought of as being tranquil, often expressive and lyrical, and sometimes rather gloomy, but in practice pieces with the name nocturne have conveyed a variety of moods: the second of Debussy’s orchestral Nocturnes, “Fêtes”, for example, is very lively. wiki

Secret Garden is an Irish-Norwegian duo playing New Instrumental Music, also understood by some as Neo-classical music. Secret Garden is made up of Irish violinist Fionnuala Sherry and Norwegian composer Rolf Løvland. wiki

Lyrics by Petter Skavlan

Now, let the day
Just slip away
So the dark night may watch over you
Velvet, blue
Silent, true
It embraces your heart and your soul

Never cry – never sigh
You don’t have to wonder why
Always be – always see
Come and dream the night with me

Have no fear
When the night draws near
And fills you with dreams and desire
Like a child asleep
So warm, so deep
You will find me there waiting for you

We will fly – claim the sky
We don’t have to wonder why
Always see – always be
Come and dream the night with me

Though darkness lay
It will give way
When the dark night delivers the day
