Lyrics

Something’s happening down at the hall

A bridge tournament, and the winner takes all

Simple pleasure and exquisite pain

Make up the sum of life we would call mundane

 

The sun, the sky

To love, we decide

The wind, the rain

To love, or disdain

 

The sun is shining, in the street kids are at play

On the porch, in the yard, husbands and divorcees

A breeze is blowing, this is the day we all face

The things that happen here are anything but commonplace

 

Chorus:

 

 

A dog is barking, someone’s washing a car

A chainsaw rumbles, traffic sounds from afar

Today we’re happy, then tonight we’re undone

The balance of the world on the tip of our tongue

 

The sun, the sky

To love, you decide

The wind, the rain

To love, or disdain
