You'll Never Be the Sun



You'll never be the sun turning in the sky

And you won't be the moon above us on the 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 the part inside when love turns round on you

Leaving the past behind is knowing you'll do like 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 the 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 will be the light
