  1. Rise & Shine

From the album Preposthumous

Lyrics


RISE AND SHINE

Throw your loving arms around me,
Hold me close until the dawn,
I’ll be ready in the morning
To rise and shine and journey on.

Take the burden from my shoulders,
Hide my boots beneath your bed,
Hang my hat upon the doorknob,
Soothe the troubles in my head.

And it’s a long meandering highway
Running from the cradle to the grave
And I’ll be on this rambling byway
Until I reach my dying day.

Today the winds of change are blowing
All around our troubled world.
Time is accelerating
And the tide begins to turn.

Leave a candle in your window,
Like a lighthouse on the sea.
I will find my way to paradise
Knowing you are there for me.

And it’s a long meandering highway
Running from the cradle to the grave
And I’ll be on this rambling byway
Until I reach my dying day.
