When you see the sun today
Ask him to lead you back
To a time when there was no reason for happiness
No tomorrows and no goodbyes
Or reasons why
No pie charts and bank statements
No time but now
A time when we dreamt improbable dreams
And believed in the meaning of our lives
A time when we danced to the music in our hearts
And laughed because joy was flowing
Back to sunshine and yellow
So you can stay so mellow
And be happy simply because you are.
