Give Me A Song To Sing



Oh, and would anyone like to see the lyrics I won with in that international contest? No? NO? Oh, you mean YES! Well, thought you'd never ask.




GIVE ME A SONG TO SING

Wake up in the morning and the sheets are cold
Wake up in the morning and the day is old
Open up the music and there is no song
In my life an emptiness where you belong

Come back
Come back
Make it all right again
Make it all bright again
Give me a song to sing

Look out the windows and the birds have gone
Is it true it's always darkest just before the dawn
Put the words together and there is no rhyme
Try to make a melody, it doesn't keep time

Come back
Come back
Make it all right again
Make it all bright again
Give me a song to sing

Fill my life with action but there are no dreams
Listen to the laughter and it isn't what it seems
Listen to the stereo, the tunes are all wrong
Looking down the road ahead, it's lonely and long

Come back
Come back
Make it all right again
Make it all bright again
Give me a song to sing
