Harvest Moon
by Runrig

Sons and daughters of the dust
Strangers of time and place
For a while your limbs entwine
Holy marriage of the flesh
But I know your ways
Your ways are not mortal thought
Till the day breaks and shadows run
Run away

So shine on harvest moon
Cast you might on the ripening corn
And I look at your life
Hold you in my arms
With all the power in the days of youth
In the fullness of love

Fields run deep in golden swards
Hot summer winds blow through the corn
Cast off your sorrows now you stand
In the presence of the Lord
And your radiance shines
Like the moon of all innocent grace
To know that we dared breathe belief
To love again

So shine on harvest moon
Cast you might on the ripening corn
And I look at your life
Hold you in my arms
With all the power in the days of youth
In the fullness of love

It says a lot for the band's talent that this epic track never even made it on to a studio album, just live albums and compilations. For many bands, this song would be the highlight of their career.

Dearly missing Scotland; my roots on my dad side from Glasgow, all the way back to 1700 as Lockhard........www.cd-ania.com Great band: well, his voice is something different. One off, as those few others one offs.....

@wemlass New (OK for about 10 yrs now!) Runrig is not the same, although I suppose that the lead singer is ok, but Donnie would always be Runrig for me! I saw them in Loch Lomond many years ago the biggest concert is that this is the only thing that tops and levels my wedding and the birth of my three children! This song is so special like porbably about another 10 I could mention at hand. I love this song!

This is not live this was a promo shoot for the Capture the Heart Ep featuring 1000 invited members from the fan club to be a crowd. The audio is studio recorded. A rare example of Runrig miming

I am so sad that he didn't sing this most beautiful song at the party on the Muir of Ord on 10th August. It must be their iconic song. I thought they would do it as a final finale, but I left the showground disappointed.

Oh I have been so blessed! Although I live in the US now, I saw Runrig in Sheffield, Portsmouth and finally at the Stirling Castle anniversary concert. If they come stateside anytime, I would be there in a heartbeat :^)
