good morning sun
my fiery friend
well it’s so nice of you to visit us again
a new beginning for a world so full of ends
a clarity that cuts through the pretend

good morning sun
good morning bright
without your warming glow, today would be tonight
you sow forgiveness,
where there once grew only spite
your loving smile, a guiding light

rise and shine
i love to be here at the start of it
rise and shine
you make me feel like i’m a part of it

rise and shine
you always bring out the best in me
rise and shine
you push the darkness to the west of me

good morning sun
good morning air
good morning flowers, birds, and humans everywhere
and when the day is dead, another one is there
with hope and possibilities to spare

rise and shine
i love to be here at the heart of it
rise and shine
you make me see that i’m a part of it
rise and shine
