Strawbs Another Day
An orange balloon on the distant horizon The air had a nip for the sun was still rising A delicate fusion of ambery tone Brought warmth to the shore where I walked all alone Another day begins. A crab scuttled awkwardly, shyly away Perhaps the strangest of all nature's rebels Night shed its cloak with the sounds of the day The gentle lap of the tide on the pebbles Another day begins, another day. The gulls on the breeze, soaring over my head Like marionettes with invisible thread The day unfurled like the flags on a mast Spelling a message of sunshine at last Another day begins, another day. I walked along for miles The clear blue sky was free And the smiles shone like pearls on the sea Another day begins, another day. Far too soon it was time to be leaving A gull flew ahead of me bobbing and weaving It caught my eye with a quizzical stare Was it my love, was it she who was there? Another day begins. I climbed the steep path to the high cliff top's heather The sea was as clear as a fresh mountain stream The gull as it circled away dropped a feather A souvenir of a beautiful day dream Another day begins, another day.
