Lyrics

The Day Begins
05:52
Cold hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colours from our sight
Red is gray and yellow, white
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion

Pinprick holes in a colourless sky
Let insipid figures of light pass by
The mighty light of ten thousand suns
Challenges infinity and is soon gone
Night time, to some a brief interlude
To others the fear of solitude

Brave Helios, wake up your steeds
Bring the warmth the countryside needs
Dawn: Dawn Is a Feeling
03:49
Dawn is a feeling
A beautiful ceiling
The smell of grass
Just makes you pass
Into a dream

You're here today
No future fears
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to

You look around you
Things they astound you
So breathe in deep
You're not asleep
Open your mind

You're here today
No future fears
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to

Do you understand
That all over this land
There's a feeling
In minds far and near
Things are becoming clear
With a meaning

Now that you're knowing
Pleasure starts flowing
It's true life flies
Faster than eyes
Could ever see

You're here today
No future fears
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to
The Morning: Another Morning
03:56
Balloons flying
Children sighing
What a day to go kite flying
Breeze is cool
Away from school
Cowboys fighting out a duel
Time seems to stand quite still
In a child's world, it always will

Fish is biting
So exciting
Lunchtime sounds so inviting
Angler Bill
He gets a thrill
Sitting, watching bobbing quill
Time seems to stand quite still
In a child's world, it always will

Yesterday's dreams
Are tomorrow's sighs
Watch children playing
They seem so wise

Mary Green
Today is a queen
One thousand dollies are a dream
In cotton frocks and golden locks
Her palace is an orange box

Time seems to stand quite still
In a child's world, it always will
Lunch Break: Peak Hour
05:30
I see it all through my window, it seems
Never failing like millions of bees
All that is wrong
No time to be won
All they need to do
What can be done

Peak hour
Peak hour
Peak hour

Minds are subject to what should be done
Problems solved, time cannot be won
One hour a day
One hour at night
Sees crowds of people
All meant for flight

Peak hour
Peak hour
Peak hour

It makes me want to run out and tell them
They've got time
Take a step back out
And look in
I found out
I've got time...

Minds are subject to what should be done
Problems solved, time cannot be won
One hour a day
One hour at night
Sees crowds of people
All meant for flight

Peak hour
Peak hour
Peak hour
The Afternoon: Forever Afternoon (Tuesday?)/(Evening) Time to Get Away
08:24
Forever Afternoon

Tuesday afternoon
I'm just beginning to see
Now I'm on my way
It doesn't matter to me
Chasing the clouds away

Something calls to me
The trees are drawing me near
I've got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh

I'm looking at myself
Reflections of my mind
It's just the kind of day
To leave myself behind
So gently swaying
Through the fairy-land of love
If you'll just come with me
And see the beauty of

Tuesday afternoon
Tuesday afternoon

Tuesday, afternoon
I'm just beginning to see
Now I'm on my way
It doesn't matter to me
Chasing the clouds away

Something calls to me
The trees are drawing me near
I've got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh


Time to Get Away

Evening has come to pass
The time of day doesn't last
Evening has earned its place today
I'm tired of working away

Working, living it brings
Only way to have those things
Toiling has bought too many tears
Turn round all those past years

Evening time to get away
Evening time to get away
Evening time to get away
Till next day

Live all you people
You can see where you're at
It doesn't really hurt you
So that can't be bad

Evening time to get away

Live all you people
You can see where you're at
It doesn't really hurt you
So that can't be bad

Evening time to get away
Evening time to get away
Evening: The Sunset/Twilight Time
06:41
The Sunset

When the sun goes down
And the clouds all frown
Night has begun for the sunset

See it with your eyes
Earth re-energized
By the sun's rays every day
Take a look out there
Planets everywhere

When the sun goes down
And the clouds all frown
Night has begun for the sunset

Shadows on the ground
Never make a sound
Fading away in the sunset
Night has now become
Day for everyone

I can see it all
From this great height
I can feel the sun
Slipping out of sight
And the world still goes on
Through the night


Twilight Time

Twilight Time, to dream awhile
In veils of deepening blue
As fantasy strides over colourful skies
Of form disappearing from view

In twilight time, dream with me awhile

A nightingale plays a dark mellow phrase
Of notes that are rich and so true
An aerial display by the firefly brigade
Dancing to tunes no one knew

In twilight time, dream with me awhile
In twilight time, dream with me awhile

Building castles in the air
Whistling to the wind
As nature bows down her head
See what tomorrow brings

Twilight time, dream with me awhile

Bats take to wing, like puppets on string
Prancing through cool evening air
In a sightless glide, no reason to hide
Away from the sun's blinding stare

In twilight time, dream with me awhile
In twilight time, dream with me awhile
The Night: Nights in White Satin
07:30
Also available on:
Sandra - Fading Shades (1995) (as Nights in White Satin)
Nights in white satin
Never reaching the end
Letters I've written
Never meaning to send

Beauty I'd always missed
With these eyes before
Just what the truth is
I can't say anymore

'Cause I love you
Yes I love you
Oh how I love you

Gazing at people
Some hand in hand
Just what I'm going through
They can understand

Some try to tell me
Thoughts they cannot defend
Just what you want to be
You will be in the end

And I love you
Yes, I love you
Oh, how I love you
Oh, how I love you

Nights in white satin
Never reaching the end
Letters I've written
Never meaning to send

Beauty I'd always missed
With these eyes before
Just what the truth is
I can't say anymore

'Cause I love you
Yes, I love you
Oh, how I love you
Oh, how I love you

'Cause I love you
Yes, I love you
Oh, how I love you
Oh, how I love you


Late Lament

Breathe deep the gathering gloom
Watch lights fade from every room
Bedsitter people look back and lament
Another day's useless energy spent

Impassioned lovers wrestle as one
Lonely man cries for love and has none
New mother picks up and suckles her son
Senior citizens wish they were young

Cold hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colours from our sight
Red is grey and yellow, white
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion
