"The Sun King and the Winter Moon" as written by and Kevin Welch....
The Night Birds and the Birds Of Morning
Sang together for a spell
Till the Night Birds song became a warning
A warning they knew all too well
Morning would be coming soon
They flew off toward the Winter Moon
And they followed her down as down she fell
They followed her down as down she fell
How far down I'll never tell
Followed her down as down she fell

As down she fell she called out to him
"Aren't you cold without me dear?"
Her silver tongue sent shivers through him
He pretended not to hear
But she knew him like no others did
She knew where all his hurt was hid
He followed her down but he never got near
He followed her down but he never got near
He had no hope and he had no fear
He followed her down but he never got near

When the Sun King rose that afternoon
He looked like he had been through hell
All night he'd chased that Winter Moon
Ask him why, he could not tell
But when she finally turned to him
We all saw his light grow dim
And he followed her down as down she fell
He followed her down as down she fell
How far down I'll never tell
He followed her down as down she fell

So fly away home you Birds Of Morning
Fly away all you Night Birds too
Or all your songs will die a'borning
All except this mournful tune
About the Sun King and the Winter Moon
The Sun King and the Winter Moon
