Orion

  • (James Keelaghan)

    I can make out the belt of the hunter Orion
    He's climbing the heavens, he's sweeping the skies
    I can tell by the stars in his glittering belt
    That it's time to start searching for how and for why

    So many stars come and go
    Some have names, some you know
    Some will remind me of you
    So many things here and gone
    Some don't fit, some belong
    Some will remind me of you

    I can feel the north wind make a kick at the window
    It's seeking the weakness, it tries to come in
    I can tell by the flame of the flickering candle
    That it is succeeding now winter begins

    So many winds come and go
    Some blow hot and some blow cold
    Some will remind me of you
    So many things here and gone
    Some don't fit, some belong
    Some will remind me of you

    There's some part of you always will come through
    Some small part of my day
    Some part of me always longs to be
    Just can't keep you away

    I can tell by the clock on the wall time's advancing
    It waits for no one, this much I see
    That time is a river and on it we're flowing
    We're rocking and rolling till we reach the sea

    So many hours come and go
    Some go fast and some go slow
    Some will remind me of you
    So many things here and gone
    Some don't fit, some belong
    Some will remind me of you

  • [1993:] Sometimes [as here], out of the blue, I'll be playing my guitar and I'll get an idea for a melody and there's immediately some words that suggest themselves. (James Keelaghan, Sing Out 38/2)
