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've 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'd 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've 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

And 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
