Lyrics: Midsummer's Eve

#5 Midsummer’s Eve

O
n the longest day of the year Ah! When the fires are lit in the afternoon the Basques' night is full of colours, there's happiness around the fire.

Everyone jumping around, old people laughing, those who have been and those who will be, holding hands around the fire, our life's a circular dance.

Ha, ha! Fire cleans our hearts Ha, ha! Smoke shakes our souls Ha, ha! The peaceful shadow dance Ha, ha! Ha, ha...!

The sun goes round the universe and this is what an old song says: Let the bad go and the good come, let's be completely happy.

There's no-one missing, just you friends singing, and me thinking… Ten thousand kisses for those of you now here, the Midsummer Night's songs and night are for you!

Ha, ha! Fire cleans our hearts Ha, ha! Smoke shakes our souls Ha, ha! The peaceful shadow dance.
