The Lamps of Night and Day


Verse 1

There is light
With the evening sun disappearing
There’s an army of people appearing
Bringing light to streets of the city
One by one every lamp makes a path in the darkness
Like a friend in a moment of sadness
Giving light to a smouldering spirit


Oh no, don’t you let, let them fade away
You got dreams every single day
For lamps of love burn inside your soul
So never let them fade away.


There is light
As they’re lighting the lamps of the city
There’s feeling inside you that’s growing
And a spirit is moving within you
You got love as you walk through the streets of the city
See the lamplight burning around you
Feel the lamplight burning within you


Oh no, you can’t make … make the sun go down
And you can’t make … make the sun go up
And you can’t rush … rush the setting sun
So wait awhile … ‘til love
‘til love … ‘til love …begins to burn ….
