Lyrics

Smile brother sun shine outside,
Take my hand sister, come join us and listen.
To the sweet sound of the song bird singing,
Take a chance on the life till now you’ve been missing.

Hey Preacher if your tired of reaching
For all those grey clouds that hang all over you.
Cause in the morning the suns going to shine through,
Seeing means believing for those you’ve been teaching.

I’ve been waiting for this day forever,
You’ve been craving all these words I’m saying.
I’ve been waiting for this day forever,
You’ve been craving all these words I’m saying.

Hey blue eyes keep the twinkle inside alive
For all those bad boys keep running after you.
Some day real soon that twinkles gonna catch you
The keeper of the full moon, he’s gonna light up your night.

Hey traveler if your tired of walking.
Lay your feet up on the back of my wagon.
There’s some water fresh fruit if you need proof.
Mr. Im a good man on my highway route.

I’ve been waiting for this day forever,
You’ve been craving all these words I’m saying.
I’ve been waiting for this day forever,
You’ve been craving all these words I’m saying.
