Four steps in the morning,
Two steps in the day,
Three steps in the evening,
The darkness is a’blazing all the angels’ seats
And soldiers step to liberate
Ola e, ola e

I run out like a cheetah
Monkey’s in the blood
What a piece of work this man
Who screams the name of love
But all his brothers, cousins, sisters, and others hear his fuss
Ola e, ola e

Chorus:
All night awake,
In the moonlight I’m with you
In the moonlight I’m with you brighter than gold

Born on the horizon,
Beaming through the sky
Someone’s seen what none can dream,
But light calls it a lie
And all the sinners, saints and winners,
Just wait to walk on by
Ola e, ola e

The Brando’s in the forest,
And Nancy’s in the flood
The black swan makes a pirouette
The gods cry from above
And all the rain keeṗs falling,
I’m bare feet in the mud
Ola e, ola e

Chorus:
All night awake,
In the moonlight I’m with you
In the moonlight I’m with you brighter than gold

Ola e, ola e

Come northern lights of Norway
Come sunrise to the East
Come wicked witches of the west,
West-south time with a beat
And all the lions, riots and preachers come down into the street
Ola e, ola e

Chorus:
All night awake,
In the moonlight I’m with you
In the moonlight I’m with you brighter than
All night awake,
In the moonlight I’m with you
In the moonlight I’m with you brighter than gold
