Lark, sing out loud to the morning light and we will hear your voices
Flower, open your arms to the new day and we will see your faces
break the darkest cloud, your warmth we will feel
our hearts you live, in our minds you breath, you are not gone
sing out loud to the morning light and on and on and on.........
