David Wilcox – Sunshine On The Land lyrics

From The Nightshift Watchman
..............................................

I went to see an old friend
Who was soon to pass away.
He said, "My life has been so good to me.
Now I still got one more day. "

Now he said that as he watched the morning sun
And then he smiled my way.
Because he said that every morning,
He lived his life that way.

He said, "I am the sunshine.
You are the sunshine.
We are the sunshine.
Help me understand.
We are the sunshine on the land. "

He said this day is like a life you live,
It's never here to stay,
Because your time is always runnin' by
Like the sun across the day.

But it's like lookin' at the sunshine from the earth.
The light does come and go.
But when you're lookin' at the earth shine from the sun,
It's quite a different show.
He said it's time you know.

That I am the sunshine.
You are the sunshine.
We are the sunshine.
Help me understand.
We are the sunshine on the land.

Now I'm thinkin' of the things he said.
We're walkin' toward the grave.
And I haven't lived a life like his
But I still got one more day.
Now you could say it's only flesh and bone

The life that's in your hands
But I like to think it's something more
Like the sunshine on the land.

I am the sunshine.
You are the sunshine.
We are the sunshine.
Help me understand.
We are the sunshine on the land.
We are the sunshine on the land.
