The Promise of Tomorrow

You Are The New Day

Songwriter: Peter Knight

woman on beach with arms spread wide greeting sunrise

You are the new day

I will love you more than me … And more than yesterday
If you can but prove to me … You are the new day
Send the sun in time for dawn … Let the birds all hail the morn
Love of life will urge me say … You are the new day
When I lay me down at night … Knowing we must pay
Thoughts occur that this night might … Stay yesterday
Thoughts that we as humans small … Could slow worlds and end it all
Lie around me where they fall … Before the new day
One more day when time is running out for everyone
Like a breath I knew would come I reach for the new day
Hope is my philosophy … Just needs days in which to be
Love of life means hope for me … Borne on a new day
You are the new day
