The Days Are Getting Longer Now

 

Happy birthday Isaac, happy birthday June, this old sun’s a little overdue,

Get outside, no skeleton key, smash the window, with vitamin D,

Jump up, fall down, skip town, sleep around,

The days are getting longer now, longer now.

The days are getting longer now.

Be the blind, know no shame, trust your body, use your brain,

Buy a ticket, skip the queue, climb a mountain, forget the view,

Lose a minute, gain an hour, find a lover, pick a flower.

The days are getting longer now, longer now.

The days are getting longer now.

 

'Coz all of the people that I could have been,

Are some place somewhere not unseen,

Are no place nowhere and they'll never meet,

What’s gone, is past, is done.

 

So down a bottle, get the gist, ignore your latest to-do list,

Ride the rail, walk the tracks, get lost, don't turn back,

Jump up, fall down, skip town, sleep around,

The days are getting longer now, longer now.

The days are getting longer now.

It's a song for the gentle,

A song for the brave,

A song for the quiet ones,

Walking home in the rain.

 

It's a song for the lovers,

Together in a haze,

And a song for the loner,

Making the most of their days.

And I don't know why, I can't wait for that light to surround me,

And I don't know why, I can't wait for that light to surround me.

 

It's a song for the gentle,

A song for the brave,

A song for the quiet ones,

Walking home in the rain.

 

It's a song for the lovers,

Together in a haze,

And a song for the loner,

Making the most of their days.

 

And I don't know why, I can't wait for that light to surround me,

And I don't know why, I can't wait for that light to surround me...
