lyrics

I left you on the meadow at the beginning of the year
The sky was gray and the ground a white and i'll admit I shed some tears
I made a promise I'd come back to you before you'd even know
We'd spend the year to come before the first new drop of snow

Oh love, love look up and think of
the northern sky in the middle of the night
and we'd spend the hours a'counting away
and we'd spend the hours a'counting away
Oh love, love look up and think of
the dancing sky in the middle of the night
when Aurora would be shining
when Aurora would be shining

As seasons changed and the days were warmed
I would travel the open sea
Where I'd meet the ladies of the blue and they would listen to my stories
I told them of you love of mine, and our sunny afternoons
and how I'd know deep in my soul that I was coming back to you

Oh love, love look up and think of
the fiery skies in the middle of the night
how your skin and mine would be finding a way
how your skin and mine would be finding a way
Oh love, love look up and think of
our tired eyes from the sleepy moon's light
how our bodies would be fading
and our bodies

Now the leaves have turned and the air is crisp and ocean's voice has ceased
I'll travel the path that lead me here between the quiet ancient elm trees
and as the path along turns meadow I will know I have arrived
to the northern sky in the middle of the night
to the true love of mine

Oh love, love look up and think of
the northern sky in the middle of the night
as we'd spend the hours a'counting away
as the waves at night would drift back from the bay
And I'd see Aurora shining my love shining shining
My Aurora
My Aurora
My Aurora
My Aurora
