lyrics

Dawn comes unbidden out of the night
And hope has risen along with the light
When the angle of the sun is right
When all the world is stirring
How can I be sad?

Life comes unbidden out of the void
And Death is a given, we’ll all be destroyed
But in the silence of the early light
And all the world is laughing
How can I be sad?

Everyone knows, down in their toes,
It’s just a dream
Still it makes you want to scream sometimes
makes you want to scream sometimes

This song comes unbidden, a welcome friend
the ball keeps on spinning, there’s no end
when the colors break upon my sight
and all the world is trembling,
How can I be sad?
