Days In The Sun

Lyricist: Alan Menken    Composer: Alan Menken

Days in the sun
When my life has barely began
Not until my whole life is done
Will I ever leave you

Will I tremble again
To my dear one's gorgeous refrain?

Will you now forever remain
Out of reach of my arms?

All those days in the sun
What I'd give to relive just one
Undo what's done
And bring back the light

Oh, I could sing
Of the pain these dark days bring
The spell we're under
Still, it's the wonder of us I sing of tonight

How in the midst of all this sorrow
Can so much hope and love endure
I was innocent and certain
Now I'm wiser but unsure

Days in the past
I can't go back into my childhood
All those precious days
One that my father made secure
Couldn't last
I can feel a change in me
Oh, hold me closer!
I'm stronger now, but still not free

Days in the sun will return
We must believe as lovers do
That days in the sun
Will come shining through
