Lyrics

THE HILLS OF ABERDEEN
©2013 Casia

(V1)
One dark knight 
To my light of day 
One drop of whiskey 
And knighthood is goin? ta pay 
I can?na resist 
A maiden in the night 
I have a silver tongue 
And a sword ready to fight 

(Chorus) 
The full moon is rising 
On the Hills of Aberdeen 
I?m ready to take a stand 
Ready with a steady hand 
Oh, one dark knight 
Makes a difference to my day 
On the Hills of Aberdeen 
Our love is here to stay 

(V2) 
I hear them coming 
Nothing can stop them now 
But maybe a crimson moon 
And some luck somehow 
Give me one last kiss 
Let the blood rush through my veins 
I?ve lived a thousand lies 
I won?t live in vain 

(Chorus) 
The full moon is rising 
On the Hills of Aberdeen
I?m ready to take a stand 
Ready with a steady hand 
Oh, one dark knight 
Makes a difference to my day 
On the Hills of Aberdeen 
Our love is here to stay 

(V3 - Bridge) 
Am I a headless horseman 
I have a soul you know 
The pipers come to haunt me 
It seems everywhere I go 
In the end it?s you and I 
Fighting for our lives 
The glory of the future 
I can see it your eyes 

(Outro x2) 
On this night of nights 
In one moment of truth 
I raise my sword up to the sky 
In Aberdeen tonight
