Toast to the Night

Words and Music: Dorcas Whitecap

Well armed are we with a jack and a tale
To do merriest battle this night
If our voices stay strong and our elbows don't fail,
We may hold off the coming of light.

But the night rushes on and the fire burns low
And to slumber our comrades must fall.
To the East comes the sign of the that pitiless foe
So we rise to our fate one and all

Raise a cup, lift your voice, still we must part
For no one can hold back the dawn
But till we meet again you'll remain in my heart
With the music that still echoes on
