From the recording Unfinished tracks

Written back in 1999 when I used to perform this A cappela in the SCA. This is how it always sounded in my head.

Lyrics

The day is over, the sun is setting
Our mugs have been filled and our hearts are light.
Some of the faces are so familiar
And all the others will be friends tonight.

And I don’t want this night to end.
I’m not ready to go to sleep
Just one more story or one more song.
A memory I’ll always keep.

As I go walking from fire to fire
There’s always someone to listen to my show
And I notice that when I’m finished
My empty cup gets refilled before I go

And I don’t want this night to end.
I’m not ready to go to sleep
Just one more story or one more song.
A memory I’ll always keep.

The valiant warriors who serve our kingdom
Are talking all about the warriors they’ve slain
Their deeds of honor will make great ballads
And I look forward to hearing them again.

And I don’t want this night to end.
I’m not ready to go to sleep
Just one more story or one more song.
A memory I’ll always keep.

It’s getting late now, I am exhausted
But there’s no way that I’m ready to turn in.
For every moment, this night gets better
And we may never pass this way again.

And I don’t want this night to end.
I’m not ready to go to sleep
Just one more story or one more song.
A memory I’ll always keep.

I just don’t want this night to end
I’m not ready to go to sleep
Just one last story or one last song
A memory I’ll always keep.
