Smiling In The Dark

A peaceful mockingbird hangin’ on the corner
Telling tales of golden love
The breeze blowing through the trees and spinning round
Whispering tomorrow’s gift of yesterday

Laughter ringing her bell of happiness
And survival always crying out to be born again
No matter how things may get you down
Know you have the power to turn it all around (just by)

Smiling in the dark
Bright light, all night
Smiling in the dark
No fear, my dear

The kids of night and day playing tricks with time
And the long road ain’t easy but it’ll still getcha there
Folks who are lost know most the beauty of being found
The Invisible Hand can touch a heart from anywhere

Just close your eyes and you can go where you wanna go
Free yourself and let your imagination take you there
No matter if skies may turn cloudy and gray
Love will lead you through to another sunny day (yes I’m)

Smiling in the dark
Bright light, through the night (just keep)
Smiling in the dark
No fear, my dear

Set your spirit free and ride high above the clouds
Set your spirit free and ride high above the clouds
Set your spirit free and ride high above the clouds
Set your spirit free and ride high above the clouds
