This Beautiful Pain

This song is by Runrig and appears on the album The Big Wheel (1991).

Day was young, desire was stirred
Summer was all but gone
Light was fading from the side of your face
Sinking low in the corn

All that's constant and wise
I still see in your eyes
It was always this way from the start
Right here where I stand
On the last of the land
But you're still breaking the heart

Now all I have is rushing right through my hands
Sailing over the seas
Down that tide where fresh and salt combine
All victories are released

We who wrestle the years
Have traded our fears
For a glimpse of ecstasy in the dark
Turning ice in the fire
But still we're denied
But you're still breaking the heart

The skies turned red without failure
They held their promise and dread till the last
You put all of my youth in my future
You put the future back into my past

So shine a light and shine it brightly now
You know it all takes its course
And all the many ways I've tried so hard
To reach this potent source

On the day behind time
Across the divide
Along the cord came all light out of dark
Now I stand amazed
In this beautiful pain
But you're still breaking the heart

You're breaking the heart
