Track Name: Mr. Sunshine and Mrs. Moonbright
Hey there Mr. Sunshine
are you sinking, sinking now?
Hey there, Mrs. Moonbright
whatcha thinking, thinking about?

She said, "All the stars are my dancing partners."
He said, "Almost, but the clouds are my pillows."
She said, "Every evening I laugh 'til I cry,
the sky is a place for being yourself."
He said, "Every morning I rise from the dead,
the sky is a place for losing your head."

Hey there Mr. Sunshine
are you sinking, sinking now?
Hey there, Mrs. Moonbright
whatcha thinking, thinking about?

I went up to the roof to talk with my rotund neighbors
They said, "Love grows in the wholly forgotten places."
I wondered if I had somehow been mistaken.
They said, "No, we've heard your voice,
we know what our children are trying to say.
No, we've heard your voice,
from far, far away."


Hey there Mr. Sunshine
are you sinking, sinking now?
Hey there, Mrs. Moonbright
whatcha thinking, thinking about?
Track Name: The Orange Sun
Up on the hill,
with the orange sun,
shining down on the
silent one.

Out in the field,
flies the old moon crow,
looking for the girl
he longs to hold.

Sleep will not come
to the pale blue boy
working hard until
the morning time.

And the best of us
must stand in lines.

Nowhere to climb
when the last tree fell
all the children stay
inside the house.

Friends far away
live in picture frames
waiting for the dust
to reveal their age.

Truth never dies
so they used to say
but the sun stayed down
and they lost their faith.

And the worst of times
can be good for us.
And the best of us
must stand in lines.
