In Green by Day

This song was written by Ali Burns.

Verse 1 (alto and tenor only)
In green by day, and silver light
Of darkling moon, and spark at night
We live by moments, reap by hand
The emerald crease, and curve of land

(And) as we dance, the dance moves on
The dance moves in (us) on and on
And as we turn, the dance moves on (and on and on)
And stars become the rhythm
(Last time only: Stars become the rhythm)

Verse 2
The why and when, and how and where
Of fruit of earth, and seed and care
The river path and peaty song
We live by season and belong.


Verse 3
We thread the land, with perfect days
Of hills and sky, and sun and rain
Of autumn days, and earthly miles
We dare to dream of hearth and fire.

No chorus

Verse 4
We are the hills, and grass and earth
The air and fuels, our children's breath
We are the sum, of blood and chance
Forever turning in the dance.
