She Moved Through The Fair

This song is by Elliot Goldenthal and appears on the movie soundtrack Michael Collins (1996).

My young love said to me my mother won't mind,
And my father won't slight you for your lack of kind,
He went away from me and this he did say,
'It will not be long love till our wedding day.'

He went away from me and he moved through the fair,
And slowly I watched him move here and move there,
He went his way homeward with one star awake,
As the swan in the evening moves over the lake.

I dreamed last night that my young love came in,
He came in so sweetly, his feet made no din;
He stepped close beside me, and this he did say,
'It will not be long love, till our wedding day'

'It will not be long love, till our wedding day'
