The Song (They Love To Sing) - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


The day begins
Riding a rainbow
Bow in her hand
To drive away
The night again
Nothing has changed
And all around
People are waking
King of them all
Has gone to rest
He passed the test
Leaving the stage
Time goes sailing on
Slowly the crowd will appear
And into their ears
The song they'd love to sing forever
Tomorrows come,
Tonight lives on for years

The time has come
Follow the spotlight
Lighting the scene
Another world
The flags unfurled
Into the sky
And in the air
Music is playing
Ingots of gold
Fall to the ground
Creating sound
Into the night

Time goes sailing on
Into the light disappears
And still in the ears
The song they'd love to sing forever
Tomorrows come,
Tonight lives on for years
