Tucson

(david m. bailey)
Sun came up in Tucson like it did the day before
Watched the morning shadows creep across the floor
Dark and silent echoes of the light behind the hills
I heard the angels sing as time was standing still

Can you feel the heartbeat of this brand ne day?
If you have the will, you can find the way
Moments only last for a moment then they're gone
but a moment is forever if you choose to carry on

Sun began to climb and the day was gettin hot

Wasn't long before I found myself lost in thought
It's not hard to remember but it's easy to forget
The sun that lights your way is gonna have to set

And there's so much to see
and there's so much to do
The choices to make are all up to you

Keep an eye on the road and one eye up above
love the things you do and do the things you love

I watched the evening sun paint the hills a rusty red
A peaceful kind of blanket with hope in every thread
and the cactus on the ridge held its arms straight up high
The angels sang again beneath the desert sky:

Did you feel the heartbeat of this awesome day?
Did you have the will, did you find a way
Did you miss a moment, did you sing this song?
when you see the sun again make a choice to carry on

Sun came up in Tucson like it did the day before
Sun came up in Boston like it did the day before
Sun came up in London like it did the day before
Sun came up in Cairo like it did the day before
Sun came up in Tokyo like it did the day before
