Lyrics

The morning sun has gone away
Dark clouds gather round
All the colours fade to grey
The birds make lonely sounds
A chill wind blows away the leaves
Summer's been and gone
And we just had
Twenty orbits round the sun

You always shone a big bright light
In to my cold dark heart
Your gentle touch was my delight
Right from the very start
Suddenly the light has dimmed
My world has been undone
After only twenty orbits round the sun

Twenty orbits round the sun
Together day and night
Twenty orbits round the sun
Like two bright satellites
I think of all we had before
I thought we'd just begun
Now all I want are twenty more
Orbits round the sun

It's been like some crazy dream
Since you went away
Like some kind of hell it seems
My world is dark and grey

In the fading light of the cosmos
In the twinkling of an eye
A star that burned so brightly
Can just fade out and die
I thought we had forever
But somehow now you're gone
After only twenty orbits round the sun

In the cold dark of the evening
As the night time meets the day
I think about your leaving
Wondering how we lost our way
Time stole all our words of love
All our joy and fun
And we just had twenty orbits
Round the sun
And we just had twenty orbits
Round the sun...
