The Wailin' Jennys Away But Never Gone Lyrics

Last updated: 07/05/2012 11:00:00 AM

The moon's on its way to its nightly shift
The frogs fill the creek below
The tall grass waves a farewell to the day
The wind moans sweet and low
The heron tucks his head in his wing
The fish in the lake float along
The sun sinks from sight
Away but never gone

The dawn brings the dew like a thousand jewels
A nest rustles high on a bough
A blue egg stays warm in the cool of the morn
Under a red breast of down
The clouds turn and stretch, the moon checks its wrist
gathers itself with a yawn
And winks to the sun
Away but never gone

And all o'er the world as it turns and it turns
the stars twinkle off and on
And we come and go
Away but never gone
