Chris De Burgh - In A Country Churchyard Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • In a country churchyard there's a preacher with his people
  • Gathered all around to join a man and woman,
  • Spring is here and turtle doves are singing from the steeple,
  • Bees are in the flowers, growing in the graveyard,
  • And over the hill, where the river meets the mill,
  • A lovely girl is coming down
  • To give her hand upon her wedding day.
  • Dressed in simple white and wearing flowers in her hair,
  • Music as she walks slowly to the altar,
  • And picking up his bible then the preacher turns towards her,
  • "will you take this man to be your wedded husband,
  • To honour and love in the eyes of god above,
  • Now let the peoble sing with me
  • These words to live forever in your heart...
  • Let your love shine on
  • For we are the stars in the sky,
  • Let your love shine strong
  • Until the day you fly away"
  • Many years have fallen on that golden country morning,
  • The graveyard's overgrown, the church lies in ruins,
  • Ivy on the walls and ravens wheeling round above me
  • As i made my way towards the last remaining headstone,
  • I fell to my knees, read the lines beneath the leaves,
  • And suddenly it seemed to me
  • I heard the words like singing in the trees...
  • Let your love shine on
  • For we are the stars in the sky,
  • Let your love shine strong
  • Until the day you fly...
  • Let your love shine on
  • For we are the stars in the sky,
  • Let your love shine strong
  • Until the day you fly...
  • Fly away...
