lyrics

Tonight is a night like no other has been
With a cold that can cut like a knife
As I walk down the road, silent, alone
In the beautiful still of the night
My heart is singing
My life's just beginning
I'm rushing – I'm high as a kite...
A lone wolf calls
And darkness falls
I'm born in the loss of the light

Chorus:
Now the shadow creeps over the white shining glow
The darkness will fall on us soon
On a cold winter night we're losing the light
In a total eclipse of the moon

There's a billion stars that have all been revealed
And they cover the black velvet sky
There's light that's so white, and as cold as the night
And you feel like it pierces your eyes
My mind is reeling
I'm caught in a feeling
The feeling that time has stood still
I can almost believe 
That my soul has been freed,
I can feel it rise up from that hill


Was a long time ago, I stood out in the snow
As a child looking up at the sky
As a sweet mystery, unfolded for me
And the moon bid a silent goodbye
Through all of the years
I'm am still moved to tears
By that moment that touched my heart so
It won't go away
I'm still haunted today
By a music that plays in my soul..

Second chorus
Now the shadow creeps over the white shining glow
The darkness will fall on me soon
It's a cold winter night, and I'm losing the light
In a total eclipse of the moon
It's a cold winter night, and I'm losing the light
In a total eclipse of the moon

about

Jim Love Ontario

I wrote my first song when I was about 14 with the line "write me, box nothing, Trans Canada Highway". A few months later, I ran away to Vancouver. The songs never stopped.

In my 20's a Juno nomination and gold album as a writer for a kid's band. A couple of musicals live and on CBC and a series of songs.

After 40 years I'm back with some of my best songs. Never too late.
