Day For Night (Gene Clark)

Textones version:

Somewhere in passage of morning to night
Figures fade into the wind
Delighted in trials and purposely exiled
Trying to trade the day for the night

Shades of evening purple empty space
Where everybody screams like they're all true
Shadows of morning curtains of twilight
Trying to trade the day for the night

Deep misunderstandings have echoed through the years
Judge and you will be judged wrong or right
I wonder why she still stands there her face in tears
Trying to trade the day for the night

Regiments of our lives and tigers silver stripes
Can't pass each other without taking life
Believe me I have seen the last fine bird in flight
Trying to trade the day for the night
Trying to trade the day for the night

Demo version:

The road before sometimes is cold
Sometimes it is hard and rocky
But you know the promises are paved with gold
When the preachers are talking

And though tomorrow's sun will rise
Just the same as is for morning
The end of truth, the end of life
May dawn upon you without warning

So, take to heart my own dear friend
You called your own destination
And do you think you can defend
Any given situation?

Is in glory that rainbow's dream
That I can't colored situation?
But you can choose the path you need
You can't blame your station

You leave your home life all behind
Was there no love in your childhood?
To make you think you need to blind
The vision of the wolf out in the wild wood

Tomorrow's sun will rise the same
Will you awake tomorrow morning?
