Lyrics


Sunrise

And the new day's breakin' through

The morning

Of another day without you

And as the hours roll by

No-one's there to see me cry

Except the sunrise

The sunrise and you


Tired eyes drift across the shore

Looking for love and nothing more

But as the sea rolls by

No-one's there to see me cry

Except the sunrise

The sunrise and you


Sunrise

Bless my eyes

Catch my soul

Make me whole again


Sunrise, new day

Hear my song

I'm tired of fightin'

And foolin' around

But from now on

Till who knows when

My sword will be my friend

And I'll love you, love you

For all of my time
