In the moonlight one dark night was shown, oh darkened dead-eye,
when the shadows did move and the wind did moan, oh darkened dead-eye,
and the wind did moan – oh ooh ohohoo
down in the Hollows Cove.

Underground was a sound and the earth did rise (oh darkened dead-eye)
boundary broke and the souls awoke up to the night
oh I could see them plain in sight – oh ooh ohohoo
down in the Hollows Cove…

On the wind they flew, the wind they flew – ooh woohoo ooh
and with silver sighs, the sivery moon they cut in two
and from their eyes fell the tears, fell the tears like evening dew
to the earth from where they’d come and be pulled soon.

On the wind, on the wind they did soar (oh ooh ohohoo)
to the homes that they’d left on farthest shore (oh ooh ohohoo)
to the ears of their child’s sleeping child (“listen darlin’)
“I shed this tear for the fear you have at your side, little darlin’
so –

“Sleep sweetly, sleep sweetly, don’t you wake till the morning light
I have come to take all that troubles you
I have come to rest at your side
sleep sweetly, and dreaming, may these two arms you feel
and peaceful, replace here, the fear that wakes you from sleep
this one night of the year, I will bury it
I will bury it, bury it deep, so
sleep sweetly, sleep sweetly,
for I’ll bury it, bury it deep –”

The shadows moved and the wind did moan
the child woke, the child woke but did not feel alone
and open ear he did have when whisper spoke
“In your dreams I’ll come and with your fears I go
to bury them deep, deep, deep down in the soil
so don’t you be afraid of Hollows Cove, child…”
