Child of the Darkness ©

Sonja Nic Rafferty
Germany
2002

When the darkness of the night
Chases the sleepy dawn
And I'm going round in my head
My memories will appear.
Behind the mighty ocean
I know a land of the Highlands
Land of my ancestry.

I am a child of the darkness
Lost in the universe
Far away from Scotland.

When the darkness of the night
Chases the dusk in the twilight
And I'm going round in my head
My memories of whisky appear.
Behind the green valleys
I know a land of the Bravehearts
Land of my lost roots.

I am a child of the darkness .

When the darkness of the night
Chases the clouds in the distance
And I'm going round in my head
My memories of the lochs appear
Behind the thunderstorms
I know a land of the fairies
Land of ancient times.

I am a child of the darkness .

When the darkness of the night
Chases the black birds of passage
And I'm going round in my head
May memories of the kilts appear.
Behind the summer wind
I know a land of a Gaelic language
Land of the thistles.

I am a child of the darkness .
