Daylight falls
And I'm lost in the big parade
Hold my hand, darling, I'm afraid
Of the daylight

Shade is dark
Cool and languid for life or love
Safe in shadows, it's never stark
As the daylight
As the daylight

When I was just knee high
My momma told me never try
To be someone that I am not
Yet over time I had forgot
The wandering child, so lost at play
He's found himself, but he can't find his way
In the daylight
Oh, the daylight

Ooh, daylight
Ooh, daylight

Life is short
And there's no turning back the time
Fragrant meadows and rocks to climb
In the daylight

In my mind
There's a corner I need to turn
Lessons lived is a lesson learned
In the daylight
In the daylight

I miss the forest shade
You took me there, the promise I made
To never leave the dark so dear
Safe and soothing, yet I fear
As I recall and now reflect
I see it's safer to connect
To the daylight
Ooh, the daylight

Ooh, daylight
Ooh, daylight

Daylight falls
And I'm lost in the big parade
Hold my hand, darling, I'm afraid
Of the daylight
Of the day
