This song, already beautiful as a piano solo, has been rendered even lovelier by the lyrics written by Matthew Meyers, an American teenager.  

Hear Matthew play and sing his own lyrics:


The words talk about a young knight passing beneath a tower window, wherein sits a young woman with dark hair and bright eyes.  

His heart is drawn to her even as he sets off for war, and he takes a moment to stop, rest his sword beside a tree, and speak with her.  It is understood that he will be coming back this way again!
