A loving tribute to Ronnie James Dio.

lyrics

(intro)
Can you hear the music that the Night People play?
A lament drifts off to distant shores, for the one who sailed away
The Challis has been emptied… and the oath has been sworn
We will Stand Up And Shout his name, for him we raise the horns!

(verse 1)
If you listen close at night,
you can still hear the singing
Dream Evil dreams, feel the fright,
like a bell that won't stop ringing

(verse 2)
Where he came from we don't know,
but he brought us ancient magic
Secrets man lost long ago,
like The Last In Line so tragic

(bridge 1)
And then the clouds did part - and a light warmed us all
An eagle cried from high above - and we knew all would be well

(chorus 1)
He rode the wind and cast his spell
Sang us songs of Heaven and Hell
He traveled from where dragons dwell
We will not forget the BRINGER…

He sang of the past and of what will be
Locked Up The Wolves and hid the key
He mourned the lost Children Of The Sea
We will not forget the BRINGER of the HORNS!

(verse 3)
Now his words are carved in rock,
and his legend forged in metal
But time was ticking on his clock,
like a rose with wilting petals

(bridge 2)
And then the skies grew dark - and a cold wind chilled us all
A swan froze in its lonely lake - and the tears began to fall

(chorus 2)
He Sailed with Fools that did depart
Found the way to the Sacred Heart
Showed us Rainbows were Better In The Dark
We will not forget the BRINGER…

Lord of the sun; Master Of The Moon
He gave us voice, we sang the tune
He left our shores far far too soon
We will not forget the BRINGER... of the HORNS

We will not forget
We have but one regret...

(outro)
Past the Elf and the Rainbow bridge
Over the Silver Mountain ridge
FROM THERE HE BROUGHT THE HORNS

He Killed The Dragon with just one blow
Bested Knights and their Neon glow
IN THE AIR HE HELD THE HORNS

He reigned with kings and Gypsy queens
He calls to us in Fever Dreams
FOR HIM WE RAISE THE HORNS

So many songs never will be sung
Reminding us we all Die Young
We will not forget the BRINGER…

He'll ever be our guide - for legends never die
