    This song goes out to everyone who was inspired by the spectacular aurora show in March 2011, and also to all the children who missed it because they were sleeping on a school night, like my dear son Canyon, the love of my life.

lyrics

PAINT THE NIGHT
by Britt K. Arnesen

Let’s paint the night with northern lights
Shades of green to dance across the skies
And a crescent moon to sing the lullabies
My heart writes for you, the love of my life

When you’re lost follow my north star
When you’re lonely reach out for my arms
I’m the brightest beacon in your dark
Shining out to where your frontiers are

And paint the night with northern lights
Shades of green to dance across the skies
And a crescent moon to sing the lullabies
My heart writes for you, the love of my life

As the sun marches toward spring’s day
This night, winter’s cold remains
I’m by your side an ever-burning fire
Your warmth is all that I desire

Painted night with northern lights
Shades of green to dance across our skies
And a crescent moon to sing the lullabies
My heart writes for you, the love of my life

Let’s paint the night
In shades of green
In shades of blue
A crescent moon, the love of my life

Paint the night with northern lights
Shades of green to dance across our skies
And a crescent moon to sing the lullabies
My heart writes for you, the love of my life
The love of my life
