Donnie Munro – Sweetness On The Wind Lyrics

Somewhere out of all the darkened days
Like a searching stream of light
Broken shards across an empty sky
Casting shadows in our eyes
Lying broken in the wind
Long before last summer’s leaves had turned
She was the heartbeat in my life
Not a moment goes by

She was the sweetness on the wind
The cold breath whisper of a Northern night
The flickering flame that brings us in
To the warmth in her smile

On the corner of an empty street
A child with wide-eyed dreams
Hoping that a father’s race had run
So they could live like kings
Where the back court shadows fall

Sunlight glistens on the broken glass
Empty words, empty fall
And the moment is past

She was the sweetness on the wind
The cold breath whisper of a Northern night
The flickering flame that brings us in
To the warmth in her smile

Now the mirror years have spread all their lies
Across the city and the world
The age of innocence is all but gone
But not the beauty and the curls
But still her heartbeat sings
The melodies are long defined on hope
A strength, a dignity, a pride
Down the long London road
