As Long As There Are Stars Above You

Earlier today, I featured my SONG LYRIC SUNDAY choice for today. If you saw my post, you may recall I featured The Waterboys. Well, they were behind another amazing track, which I adore, absolutely adore.

Milky Way, Sky, Stars, Cosmos, Night

It is a love song, with lyrics as simple, yet as poignant as ever I did hear. It is a song that has been covered by others, but the voice that I love singing these lyrics more than any other is that of Kristina Train.

Originally by The Waterboys, this is the wonderful “How Long Will I Love You?” recorded by the sensational Kristina Train.

How long will I love you?
As long as there are stars above you
And longer if I can

How long will I need you?
As long as the seasons need to
Follow their plan

How long will I be with you?
As long as the sea is bound to
Wash upon the sand

How long will I want you?
As long as you want me to
And longer by far

How long will I hold you?
As long as your father told you
As long as you are

How long will I give to you?
As long as I live through you
However long you say

How long will I love you?
As long as stars are above you
And longer if I may
