Hunter Moon
Kate Rusby Lyrics


Softly the morning light,
Softly the dew,
Softly my soul will bend,
As she comes in view,
At dawn she is delicate,
And burning by noon,
The end of the day will come soon.

And the stars in my lonely sky,
Are infinite bright,
And the stars know my soul will fly,
They're holding it tight.

There she is rising now,
My heart it might break,
The birds in her warmth will fly,
My soul it will ache,
And the world comes alive for her,
In awe at her gaze,
And suddenly the sky is ablaze,

And the stars in my lonely sky,
Are infinite bright,
And the stars know my soul will fly,
They're holding it tight.

Say not her name to me,
For I live in the shade,
Briefly I see her,
As she starts to fade,
In silence we pass,
Our path is well worn,
In silence I wait for the dawn.

And the stars in my lonely sky,
Are infinite bright,
And the stars know my soul will fly,
They're holding it tight.

Calmly I drift along,
Oh I will endure,
I only belong to her,
Of that I am sure,
Will I ever hold her,
I cannot presume,
For she's the sun,
I'm only the moon.

And the stars in my lonely sky,
Are infinite bright,
And the stars know my soul will fly,
They're holding it tight.

And the stars in my lonely sky,
Are infinite bright,
And the stars know my soul will fly,
They're holding it tight.

Softly the morning light,
Softly the dew,
Softly my soul will bend,
As she comes in view,
At dawn she is delicate,
And burning by noon,
The end of the day will come soon.

And the world comes alive for her,

thank you for this it was a great help

Jack Cole

Is it just me or is the impossible happening, Kate's perfect voice becoming even more perfect the older she gets.

Henry Ordish

'Most things fail with age. Our hands and backs stiffen. Our eyes dim. Skin roughens and our beauty
fades. The only exception is the voice. Properly cared for, a voice does nothing but grow sweeter with
age and constant use.' - Patrick Rothfuss, 'The Wise Man's Fear'

Toni Francis

This is absolutely gorgeous, as you are, and your voice is from heaven above.

Георгий Мажуга

Just... Thank you from St.Petersburg, Russia.

Franny Hadley

This made me cry. Because I've loved someone for so long and we can't be together for he chooses a life that keeps us apart. His demons had taken him away from me. I long for him but he is lost and we belong in 2 different worlds

Ethan Pooley

I adore this song. I just try not to think about the cosmology too hard.
