Lyrics – The Sun Will Shine Again2019-04-03T16:03:45+00:00

1) The Sun Will Shine Again

Sometimes the road goes on forever,
Sometimes the road goes on in vain,
But we carry on through stormy weather,
Knowing things won’t always stay the same.

It’s a long road that has no turning,
It’s a long road that has no bend,
It’s a dark cloud arising,
Without some silver lining,
It’s a high hill you’re climbing,
That doesn’t go back down again,
So keep the home fires burning,
Keep your shelter from the wind,
The world will all seem warmer,
When you finally turn that corner,
The sun will shine again,
If you just wait till then.

Sometimes the road is hard to follow,
They’re trying times everywhere we go,
But we carry on towards tomorrow,
Could be a better day,
For all we know.

It’s a long road that has no turning,
It’s a long road that has no bend,
It’s a dark cloud arising,
Without some silver lining,
It’s a high hill you’re climbing,
That doesn’t go back down again,
So keep the home fires burning,
Keep your shelter from the wind,
The world will all seem warmer,
When you finally turn that corner,
The sun will shine again,
If you just wait till then.

REPEAT AND FADE
So keep the home fires burning,
Keep your shelter from the wind,
The world will all seem warmer,
When you finally turn that corner,
The sun will shine again,
If you just wait till then.

2) Ready to Roll

The mind is willing, but the body is weak,
The tongue is talking and I’m trying to speak,
The feet are moving with a definite illusion,
That they’re gonna go there,
When they’re going nowhere,
I know maybe I’m a pitiful sight in the morning light.

The eyes are open and they’re tryin’ to see,
The hands are hopin’ they’re connected to me,
I’m simply facin’ the situation,
I’m in need of resuscitation,
But, oh baby, I’ll be ready to roll tonight,
I’ll be ready to roll tonight.

I’ll be ready to roll like I’m out of control,
Like I’m selling my soul to the night again,
Out of control, like I’m out of the cold,
And I’m hoping the night will never end.

Some people’s poison is another man’s meat,
You leave the kitchen if you don’t like the heat,
You got me feeling like my knees are knocking,
You’ve got me reelin’, you’ve got me rocking,
But, oh baby, I’ll be ready to roll tonight.

I’ll be ready to roll like I’m out of control,
Like I’m selling my soul to the night again,
Ready to roll like a carnival soul,
Who’s just hoping the night will never end.

So don’t you talk of other times that you’ve had,
Sometimes you have to take the good with the bad,
And I’m a creature of the night time,
I want to meet you when the time’s the right time,
Oh baby, I’ll be ready to roll tonight,
I’ll be ready to roll tonight.

FADE
I ‘ll be ready to roll tonight,
Ready to roll, Ready to roll,
Ready to roll, Ready to roll,
I’ll be ready to roll tonight.

3) The Lights of the Distant Harbour

I wasn’t one for hesitating, when there were deeper waters waiting,
I would only look for refuge, until the deluge was abating,
Then I’d see that old sun rising and the turning tides prevail,
And the breadth of my horizons would bring the winds back to my sail.

But you were the lights of the distant harbour,
You were the way through the raging sea,
You were the sound of a bygone laughter,
When the world fell down on me,
You were the hope of a bright tomorrow,
When I was lost in the pouring rain,
You were the lights of the distant harbour,
That would lead me home again.

Yeah’ I see that old sun rising, and new directions would prevail,
And the breadth of my horizons would bring the winds back to my sail.

But you were the lights of the distant harbour,
You were the way through the raging sea,
You were the sound of a bygone laughter,
When the world fell down on me,
You were the hope of a bright tomorrow,
When I was lost in the pouring rain,
You were the lights of the distant harbour,
That would lead me home again.

You were the lights of the distant harbour,
You would lead me home again.

4) Daughter of Darkness.

And the crowd was sure, on the mezzanine floor,
That they never saw her leaving,
And the foyer at night was never too bright,
And the light would have been deceiving,
She was young and she was foolish,
But she was nobody’s fool as well,
There was a vision of heaven in tangerine,
Was all the doorman there could tell,
And her face had a look of innocence,
And her eyes had a look of fire,
It never took too little of common sense,
To be the victim of desire,
And the night goes on,
Yes, the night goes on.

CHORUS 1
Daughter of darkness, child of the night,
Drawn by the power of those big city lights,
Wicked and heartless the world can be cruel,
They warned me of living this life, of a fool.

She was a cabaret singer who was hitching a ride,
And I was the lonely driver,
She just wanted to travel far and wide,
And I just wanted to stay beside her,
She was young and she was foolish,
But she was something else as well,
And through a hundred tunes in those smoke-filled rooms,
I watched her weave her magic spell,
And her face was a face of innocence,
But her soul was a soul on fire,
You never think too much of the consequence,
When you’re a victim of desire,
And the night goes on,
Yes, the night goes on.

CHORUS 2
Daughter of darkness, where are you tonight,
Out there among those big city lights,
Wicked and heartless the world can be cruel,
They warned me of living this life, of a fool.

5) Gypsy Heart

We danced while the music played,
We laughed when the jokes were made,
We spread our wings and done a thousand things,
No one said we stood there waiting,
Lived our lives like we had never before,
Till there was nothing in store,
We loved, who could ask for more.

Let the sun and moon shine down on you,
Let those southern tunes play warm and true,
Let those sudden feelings inside of you,
Understand me when I’m gone.

While those winding roads wind endlessly,
While those distant hills are green to see,
And while this gypsy heart beats inside of me,
I’ll be moving on.

Romance, sometimes it comes your way,
A chance, sometimes it runs your way, and though it brings, it brings a thousand things,
No-one said it stood there waiting,
No-one said that if it went through the door,
It might come back like before,
We’ve loved, and who could ask for more.

Let the sun and moon shine down on you,
Let those southern tunes play warm and true,
Let those sudden feelings inside of you,
Understand me when I’m gone.

While those winding roads wind endlessly,
While those distant hills are green to see,
And while this gypsy heart beats inside of me,
I’ll be moving on.

While those winding roads wind endlessly,
While those distant hills are green to see,
And while this gypsy heart beats inside of me,
I’ll be moving on.

6) Wisdom in Hindsight.

There’s a new order comin’ there’s an old order gone,
There’s a new order comin’ to right all the wrongs,
But you don’t change the system, and you don’t change the game,
Just by changing the venue, just by changing the name,
And there ain’t nothing different, and there ain’t nothing new,
The use of the many for the good of the few,

There’s a new order comin’ there’s an old order gone,
There’s a new order comin’ to right all the wrongs,
But there never was a winner when the battle was won,
Nor a peaceful solution at the point of a gun,
And there ain’t nothing different, and there ain’t nothing new,
The lives of the many in the hands of the few.

CHORUS 1
We’ve got wisdom in hindsight, we’ve got things to be done,
It’s gonna be all right in the years to come,
We’ve got wisdom in hindsight, we’ll be making amends,
Those things that happened before us, will never happen again.

There’s a new order comin’ there’s an old order gone,
There’s a new order comin’ to right all the wrongs,
But you don’t change direction and you don’t change your aims,
Just by changing your drivers, just by changing your lanes,
And there ain’t nothing different, and there ain’t nothing new,
The voice of the many from the mouths of the few.

CHORUS 2
We’ve got wisdom in hindsight, we’ve got things to be done,
It’s gonna be all right in the years to come,
We’ve got wisdom in hindsight, we can really pretend,
Those things that happened before us, will never happen again.

REPEAT CHORUS 1
REPEAT CHORUS 2 Fade

7) Dreams

Hopes were high and the time slipped by,
Like the world was standing still,
And the feelings then never came again,
Perhaps they never will,
Those times they came upon us,
And then they hurried from us,
Though the times were harder then,
I wish I had them still.

CHORUS 1
When we had dreams, we had dreams,
We had dreams to come and chase the clouds away,
We had dreams to come and last forever and a day,
Anytime we wanted, anytime at all.

The race is run, the game is won,
The sacrifices made,
We found our fun in the summer sun,
And the carnival parades,
But the answers still defy me,
As the years go racing by me,
Why the summer sun seemed much more fun,
When we were back there in the shade.

CHORUS 2
When we had dreams, we had dreams,
We had dreams to come and chase the clouds away,
We had dreams to come and last forever come what may,
Anytime we wanted, anytime at all.

REPEAT CHORUS 1 Fade

8) Life at the Crossroads

They left their homes and families and their countrymen united,
And they sailed away to fight a war that had to be decided,
And they went to fight for right, we said,
And they went to fight for freedom,
And they went to fight for things, we said, everyone believed in,
But the grass grows on and the river flows on,
And you life goes on on golden wings,
And you find yourself discovering,
That the world can do some of the strangest things.

Life at the crossroads, better than none,
But incomprehensible, as those things they done,
Caught in the crossfire, between friend and foe,
Never knowing which way to turn,
Never knowing which way to go.

The lucky few came home again, to the gala celebrations,
Or just a friend or two and their families, waiting at the station,
And they went to fight for right, we said,
And they went to fight for freedom,
And they went to fight for things, we said, everyone believed in,
Yes the grass grows on and the river flows on,
And your life goes on on golden wings,
And you find yourself discovering,
That the world can do some of the strangest things.

Life at the crossroads, the battles are won,
Are they somehow responsible for those things they done,
Caught in the crossfire, between friend and foe,
Never knowing which way to turn,
Never knowing which way to go.

9) Riders of the New Horizon.

We’re hoping, we’re praying, we’re wishing, we’re saying,
That the grass will all be greener when we find it someday.
Here we are still hesitating, still we’re watching and still we’re waiting,
Gonna ride that road to glory when we find it someday.

CHORUS
We’re riders of the new horizon, we’re riding where the road may fall,
There’s a new day down the highway,
We can see its shining, we can hear it call,
And so we share the tears, we share the joys,
We share the journey, and who’s to tell us,
These are not the greatest times of all.

Here we are and we’re still saying,
Still we’re hoping and still we’re praying,
That we’ll ride that road to glory when we find it someday.

CHORUS
We’re riders of the new horizon, we’re riding where the road may fall,
There’s a new day down the highway,
We can see its shining, we can hear it call,
And so we share the tears, we share the joys,
We share the journey, and who’s to tell us,
These are not the greatest times of all.

REPEAT CHORUS

10) You and I

So, I don’t know if you’re with me, don’t know if you’re not,
Only know I’m moving if the breeze don’t stop.
It was good while it lasted, good all along,
But you say that’s not enough now, to carry on.

But we’ve sailed on deeper waters, we’ve walked on weaker ground,
Somehow that never slowed us down,
We’ve come through wilder weather, we’ve run from darker skies,
We’ve stayed together, you and I.

And I don’t know where you’re going, don’t know where we’ve been,
Don’t even remember half the things we’ve seen,
There’s a new day coming, there’s a good one that’s gone,
Be up there and running if we carry on.

We’ve sailed on deeper waters, we’ve walked on weaker ground,
Somehow that never slowed us down,
We’ve come through wilder weather, seen the sun through darker skies,
Been as one together, you and I.

We’ve sailed on deeper waters, we’ve walked on weaker ground,
Somehow that never slowed us down,
We’ve come through wilder weather, we’ve run from darker skies,
We were made forever, you and I.

11) River of No Return

Time goes by, you wonder why,
Another day gone when you blink your eye,
We can’t start over, we can’t slow down,
We can’t stay forever on the edge of town.
What do I have to do, to ever get it through to you,
There’s a whole, wide world beyond the one we’re living in,
Some things are better and some things worse,
Some things are waiting if we get there first,
Who can tell what tomorrow may bring.

CHORUS 1
I’m going to the river of no return and I’m gonna ride on the rain,
Goin’ down to the railway station, just to wait for a runaway train,
There’s always been a heart in me that’s leaving on the midnight plane,
I don’t want to live in uncertainty, but I can go there, just the same.

Same old city, same old scene,
Another day gone in the old routine,
We can’t start over, we can’t slow down,
We can’t seem to make it to the higher ground,
What do I have to do, to ever get it through to you,
There’s a lot of life beyond the bit we’re living in,
Some things are better and some things worse,
Some things are waiting if we get there first,
Who can tell what tomorrow might bring.

CHORUS 2
I’m going to the river of no return and I’m gonna ride on the rain,
Goin’ down to the railway station, just to wait for a runaway train,
There’s always been a destiny that’s calling out my name,
I don’t want to live in uncertainty, but I can go there, just the same.

CHORUS 3
I’m going to the river of no return and I’m gonna ride on the rain,
Goin’ down to the railway station, just to wait for a runaway train,
There’s always been a part of me that’s leaving on the midnight plane,
I don’t want to live in uncertainty, but I can go there, just the same.

REPEAT CHORUS 1

12) Country

Country, think I’ll go back to the country,
Think I’ll pack up all my cares and woes,
And this world I know,
For the country,

Country, I’m just a throwback to the country,
All those childhood days have long since gone,
But the love hangs on,
For the country.

People say I must be crazy,
Simply giving up, I’m lazy,
They say I’ll get no satisfaction,
When I’m so far from the action,
I say life goes on,
And It’ll soon be gone.

But in the country, it’ll still be slower in the country,
And all those things we never done before,
Will mean so much more,
In the country.

People say I’m just a dreamer,
Distant hills are always greener,
They say the world is going faster,
This life I’m going after,
It’ll all be changed,
It won’t seem the same.

But in the country, it’ll still be slower in the country,
And all those things we come to know before,
Will mean so much more,
In the country.

13) Aussie Rules, I Thank you for the Best Years of Our Lives.

I can still remember, when I first saw the game,
Remember just how good the feeling was, I was never quite the same,
My family there beside me and we all went on to say,
That we’d never find another game like the game we saw today.

So we watched the champions coming up and we watched the champions fall,
And we watched the champions hanging on with their backs against the wall,
We had our share of heroes, there were many there, it’s true,
But those were the greatest heroes, I guess I ever knew.

CHORUS 1
Aussie rules I thank you for the best years of our lives,
All those hazy, crazy, young days, all those fun days in our lives,
I thank you for the laughter and I thank you for the tears,
And I thank you just for helping us to overcome our fears,
And I thank you, for 100 years.

Through those times of plenty, and through the years of strife,
You were always there on Saturday, to give meaning to our lives,
It was hard to dwell on bad times, it was hard to dwell on doubt,
It was hard to dwell on other things, when your team came running out.

And now that time has passed us and now the nation’s grown,
The kids dressed up in colours, they’ve got heroes of their own,
My family there around me, I still hear them say,
That there’ll never be a better game than the game we have today.

CHORUS 2
Aussie rules I thank you for the best years of our lives,
All those magic, sunny Saturdays, there we no better days in our lives,
I thank you for the laughter and I thank you for the tears,
And I thank you just for helping us to overcome our fears,
And I thank you, for 100 years.
