lyrics

Northern Lights of Labrador

Composed by Donatus Angus Fulford
Performed by Allison Crowe

I've travelled far by the Northern Star
since the day that I was born.
From the Caribbean to New Orleans
I've been inclined to roam
And the beauty I've seen and the places I've been
I thought I'd see no more
''til I saw the lights that shine so bright
in the skies of Labrador.

Those Northern Lights that shine so bright
when the night is cold and clear,
the snow is bright from the pale moonlight
and silence fills the air
I cast my eyes to the sparkling skies
and I can see once more
those Northern Lghts that shine so bright
in the skies of Labrador.

This place I've heard in every word
is far away and cold
but I have found in this beautiful town
a treasure rich as gold
those dancing lights with their colours so bright
each night as I look through my door,
those Northern Lights that shine so bright
in the skies of Labrador.

Sometimes when I'm down, there's no one around
to tell my trouble to
I stroll outside and I gaze at the sky
and I'm no longer blue
the night is still as I drink up my fill
as if I'd see no more
those Northern Lights that shine so bright
in the skies of Labrador.

My time will come, like everyone,
when I must say goodbye.
I'll feel so sad as I look out the plane
as it soars through the sky
I'll think of the time when I can say
that I'll return once more
and see those Lights that shine so bright
in the skies of Labrador.

And see those Lights that shine so bright
in the skies of Labrador.
