Song For You - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

As the sounds of the morning
Roll on out of the night
The thoughts of a dreamer
Asking and telling me why
Lady awaken the morning is taking
Your bad dreams away from your eyes
Nothing's forsaken the new day is breaking
So come now it's time to arise
As the sounds of the morning
Rise up out of the blue
Still a voice keeps on saying
Hold on, hold on to you
Lady awaken the morning is taking
Your bad dreams away from your eyes
Nothing's forsaken the new day is breaking
So come now it's time to arise

Is it my life, is it my song
That makes me feel something's wrong?
You know me well, the tale i tell
Is only halfway there, 'cause you
You made me smile when i was down
And you made me happy, being around
So i'm always gonna sing for you

Is it the time, flying along
That makes me feel that it's wrong?
You know me well, the tale i tell
Is only halfway there, 'cause you
You made me smile when i was down
And you made me happy, being around
So i'm always gonna sing for you
