Daylight falls 
And I'm lost in the big parade 
Hold my hand, darling 
I'm afraid of the daylight 
Shade is dark 
Cool and languid for life or long 
Safe in shadow, 
It's never as dark as the daylight 
As the daylight 
When I was just knee high 
My momma told me never try to be  
Someone that I am not 
Yet over time I had forgot 
A wandering child, so lost at play 
He's found himself, 
But he can't find his way 
In the daylight, oh the daylight 
Oh daylight, oh daylight 
Life is short 
And there's no turning back the time 
Fragrant meadows and rocks to climb 
In that daylight  
In my mind 
There's a corner I need to turn 
Lessons left is a lesson learned 
In the daylight 
In the daylight 
I miss the forest shade 
That took me there 
The promise I made 
Can never leave the dark so dear 
Safe and soothing yet I fear 
As I recall and I reflect 
I see it's safer to connect 
To the daylight 
Oh the daylight 
Oh daylight, oh daylight 
Daylight falls 
And I'm lost in the big parade 
Hold my hand darling, I'm afraid  
Of the daylight, of the day ...
