What is this hypnotic dance/track?

What is the name of this dance/trance song I heard only once?

It's a slow groove, trance in feel. A woman is singing. She's repeating lyrics that go something like this (paraphrased from weak memory): "The sun comes at the day, the moon comes out at the night". I think the specific lyrics are about the sun chasing the moon chasing the sun chasing the moon, etc etc.

It was not in movie or performance, but a random number in a club a few years ago.

Any ideas?

Probably not this, but just might be (doesn't mention the sun, but matches the rest of your description and would probably be played in a club a couple years ago): Underworld, Moon in Water.

No, that's waaaaaaaaaaaay to upbeat and fast. This was much slower, had a sexy feel to, think the lyrics were a metaphor for a woman chasing a man, but can't swear to that.

Any chance it was Tears From The Moon?

Chase the Sun by Planet Funk?

I'm at work so I can't youtube link.

Nah. Tempo wise, it was more like Portishead's "Roads", with similar feel to the background ambience.

This is a recent (random) downtempo version of the Oceanlab feat. Justine Suissa trance/prog smash hit from 2003/2004, "Satellite". Maybe it is close? The vocal track was leaked/released to the community so there are untold versions of the song in so many different styles.

The lyrics sound similar:

"And before you sleep at night
You pray to me your lucky star your singing satellite"

No, the temp is still too fast and the ambience is overly processed in comparison to what I'm remembering.


Thanks to all who have looked so far!

Is it Underwater Love by Smoke City? It has the lyric 'After the rain comes sun; after the sun comes rain again'.

I think I heard a slightly different version, probably something mixed by the house DJ, yeah that's it.

Thanks!
