Lyrics

I've travelled far 'neath the Northern Star since the day that I was born
From the Caribbean to New Orleans I've been inclined to roam
And the beauty I've seen in the places I've been, I thought I'd see no more
Til I saw those lights that shine so bright in the skies of Labrador

This place I've heard in every word is far away and cold
But I have found in this beautiful town a treasure as rich as gold
Those dancing lights with their colours so bright each night as I look out my door
It’s the northern lights that shine so bright in the skies of Labrador

Those northern lights that shine so bright when the night is cold and clear
The snow is bright from the pale moonlight and silence fills the air
I cast my eyes to those sparkling skies and I can see once more
Those northern lights that shine so bright in the skies of Labrador

But sometimes when I'm down and there's no one around to tell my troubles to
I stroll outside and I gaze at the sky and I'm no longer blue
The night is still as I drink up my fill as though I'd see no more
Of those northern lights that shine so bright in the skies of Labrador

My time it will come, like everyone, when I must say goodbye
And I'll feel so sad as I look out the plane as it soars through the sky
And I'll think of the day when I can say that I'll return once more
And see those lights that shine so bright in the skies of Labrador

And see those lights that shine so bright in the skies of Labrador
