I am the owl who stands alone
The lonesome wild I call my home
Just like the workman when his day is done
I can't wait for that sinking sun

Let the night fall
Let the night fall
Let the night fall
Let it fall on me
Let it fall on me

I am the owl who calls upon the night
I am the eyes that abandon the light
When no one's there and the dogs bark
I'm the voice howling in the dark

I am the owl, old and wise
The lord of wood with silent eyes
The cock screams at the first spark of dawn
That's my cue and I'll be moving on and on
