Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Last Song (Mike O'Connor)
this is what I think the lyrics are, there may be a few words wrong but most of them are right

THE LAST SONG

I sang in golden autumn fields the sun will rise today
I dreamed of stars that shining down
Were singing in another may
I saw the white sail lowered down
In harbours made of dreams
The mountain king forgot his crown
Where the snows white shepherd gleams

It may not be long just a line or two
If this should be the last song it will be for you

I wept for every star that fell or silver wing laid down
The songs unheard once known so well
Drew memories, arise and grow
Still buried deep within the soul
Is all the tinners hand
As much remained still yet to hear
Is ever graced this singing land


So if a wild persistent voice calls across the way
Do not think a gift of choice
Is ever ours to hold or save
For sing we may and sing we must
Above this world of clay
For music never turns to dust
Harmony can not decay
