This is another song written by Kieran Wade from Sean Keane's CD "The Irish Scattering".

It's also on Kieran Wade's album "Across the Western Ocean".

I have the CD at home and I'll post the words when I get a chance to write them down.

These are the words taken down from Kieran Wade singing it on "Across the Western Ocean":

JOURNEY ROUND THE SUN
1
When I think of all the friends I used to know
Scattered now to places I don't go
Chasing lovers and careers
As we carry on this journey round the sun
Memories are passing one by one
Like moving pictures made from these restless years

2
Looking back on all the struggles lost and won
As we carry on this journey round the sun
Time has dried up all the tears
And the gold dust of experience remains
To be used to buy us freedom from the chains
And teach us how to fly from these restless years

Chorus
Standing on the edge of time with history fading far behind us
Searching darkly for the key
Sensing something undefined and wrestling with a greater mind for
Who am I and why are we
And as step by step discovery it goes on
In this never-ending journey round the sun
Wheels keep on turning round through these restless years

3
Living always in the shadow of the gun
In the wandering of this journey round the sun
Darkness never disappears
But as love flows through the bad times and the good
Connecting us in ways not understood
And lighting pathways drawn through these restless years

Chorus

4
Generations flowing onwards one by one
As we carry on this journey round the sun
Mystery hanging in the breeze
And as We look out on the trackless fields of time
With always one more mountain still to climb
To touch the stars we see through these restless years

Chorus

Here's a clip on youtube showing Sean Keane doing Journey round the Sun. Fabulous bunch of musicians he has backing him as well.

Mudcat never lets me down! I just stumbled across this song on youtube (same as the link posted above) and went searching for the lyrics. so, have discovered a song and a marvelous singer new to me.

Would have loved to have also heard Gram Parsons and EmmyLou do this one on this side of the pond.

I couldn't find the guitar chords for this song, so I emailed Kieran and he was kind enough to provide them to me!
