lyrics

The Sun and the Moon Gillian O'Donovan

And when the moon passed the sun, across a crowded sky
O she was blinded by his golden light, drawn to where his path would lie.
She was tempted from her way, away across the sky
She had to follow wherever he led. Oh he could not be denied.

And when the sun passed the moon, as she was shining in the sky
He saw himself there in her silver light, took her to himself that night.
The stars all looked away, to keep them from the sight,
as shining silver lost itself in gold, falling in a blaze of light.
O she was eager to take her chance
O she was caught up in circumstance
Spinning and turning she danced the dance
Tasting the danger of wild romance

And when the sun left the moon, alone up in the sky
He took away all of his golden light and left her by herself to cry
And so the night became dark, the moon refused to rise
Only the stars were left behind to shine, only they could hear her sigh.
O she was eager to take her chance
She was a victim of circumstance
Spinning and turning she danced the dance
Tasting the danger of wild romance
