Abandi Theme song: The Sky and the Dawn and the Sun- By Celtic Woman High is the moon tonight Hiding its guiding light High Heaven and earth do sleep Still in the dark so deep I will the darkness sweep I will the moon to flight I will the heavens bright I will the earth delight Open your eyes with me See paradise with me Awake and arise with me I am the dawn, I'm the new day begun I bring you the morning, I bring you the sun I hold back the night and I open the skies I give light to the world, I give sight to your eyes From the first of all time, until time is undone Forever and ever and ever and ever And I am the dawn and the sky and the sun I am one with the One, and I am the dawn I am the sky and the dawn and the sun I am the sky and the new day begun I am the sky and the dawn and the sun <!-- end of lyrics --> <!-- end of lyrics --> http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f9/Northern_Iraq_landscape.jpg <-- what the land looks like Background: The Altair and Cohen families have ruled their own kingdoms for centuries.
