delphinium Lyr Req: Morning Brings Peace of Mind (Bert Jansch (8) Lyr Add: MORNING BRINGS PEACE OF MIND (Bert Jansch 30 Mar 03


Guest, thanks for inspiring me to listen to this, it's a calming song for these troubled times (even though the morning news does not usually bring much peace of mind). I'm not sure of all the words, especially those in italics.

MORNING BRINGS PEACE OF MIND
(Bert Jansch)

First sounds of the day
So beautiful to hear
In the clear bright sunlight that comes flooding
Crystal clear voices, so happy in the street
Oh the new day beginning is so near.

My restless heart's never still
Turning and tossing through the night
Thoughts running wild in confusion
People and places all jumbled in my mind
Oh the new day beginning is so near.
[live version: Oh the new day beginning's young and clear.]

Morning brings peace of mind
And the birds are singing in the air
Gone are the nightmares a-running
And the fear of the darkness has vanished with the light
Oh the new day beginning is so near
Yeh the new day beginning's young and clear.
