"Hey You" as written by and James Samuel Iii/lewis Harris....
If your gonna jump, hey you hang on
If you feel like giving up, hey you hang on
Won't forget today sun is bright, sky is blue yeah
The pain will go away in another year or two

If you got a phone, hey you call home
If you got a voice, hey you rejoice

Won't forget today sun is bright, sky is blue yeah
Won't forget to pray day is night, world is new yeah
Pain will go away in another year or two
In a hundred years or two

If your gonna fly, hey you don't cry
You gotta live to die, hey you goodbye

Won't forget today sun is bright, sky in blue yeah
Won't forget to pray day is night world is new yeah
Pain will go away in another year or two
In a hundred years or two

...In a thousand years or two

    General CommentI love this song, especially the lyrics "the sun is bright, the sky is blue". From what I've heard and gathered, Scott (lead singer) wrote this song either the day of or the day after the September 11th tragedy. A fitting sweet song.

    General Commentdefinitely one of my favorite clarks songs. it always puts me in a good mood. driving along the parkway @ 70mph, every window singing along, "i wont forget today... the sun is bright, the sky is blue... yeeaahhh.."

    fitting because the weather here in pittsburgh has been relatively nice.

    General CommentThe Clarks definitely need spread to the masses. I went and saw and met them one day and there were so few people at the concert. I felt horrible. Nice guys though. I went to the concert not having a clue who they were and came out loving them. Love the above song b/c it's so uplifting.

    General CommentI'm in detroit, and I just heard this song. ITs great, I will have to check out more. I found them at alternativeaddiction.com Great sight, and it has a lot of newer lesser known stuff, like the Clarks for instance.

    General Commenti think its so great that more and more people are starting to realize just how great the clarks are. i'm from pittsburgh and they are pretty big here, (being it's their home town) but i hope that everyone else starts realizing just how great they are!
