Thread Name: Need Irish 'love song' for wedding day
Subject: Lyr Add: NEVER BE THE SUN (from Dolores Keane)
Have a go at "Never be the sun" by Donagh Long. Dolores Keane sings it beautifully on the album "Solid ground" DARACD 065, or "Best of D. Keane" TORTECD 206.

Here are the lyrics, see if you like it.

NEVER BE THE SUN

You'll never be the sun Turning in the sky
And you won't be the moon above us On a moonlit night
And you won't be the stars in heaven Although they burn so bright
But even on the deepest ocean You will be the light

You may not always shine as you go Barefoot over stones
You might be so long together Or you might walk alone
And you won't find that love comes easy But that love is always right
So even when the dark clouds gather You will be the light

And if you lose a part inside When love turns 'round on you
Leaving the past behind Is knowing you'll do as you always do
Holding you blind Keeping you true

You'll never be the sun Turning in the sky
And you won't be the moon above us On a moonlit night
And you won't be the stars in heaven Although they burn so bright
But even on the deepest ocean, You will be the light.
