The sun shines east, the sun shines west...
These are the streets I used to walk
On summer nights, sit out and talk
That's the house where I used to live
I remember what I would give.

This is the town I won't forget
And after anger there's nothing left
Walking now round and round
Familiar sights are open ground.

Being here again
I can recall
Forgotten moments
The rise and fall.

We used to live where children play
They leave their homes a mile away
To come and stand in trees and grass
Where we once walked the memories last.

Being here again
I can recall
Forgotten moments
The rise and fall.

The sun shines east, the sun shines west
But I know where the sun shines best
Casey street in the afternoon
Once again it's over too soon.

Being here again
I can recall
Forgotten moments
The rise and fall.

Being here again
I can recall
Forgotten moments
The rise and fall.

Rise
(Rise)
(Rise)

Rise and fall
Rise and fall

    General CommentThe sun shines east, the sun shines west
    But I know where the sun shines best
    Casey street in the afternoon

    Is about a great sunny afternoon that began outside a pub in Cases Street (pronounced Casey Street) in Liverpool around 1981. I was with him and a few of my mates. I know this to be a fact as I have spoken to him about these words a few times since.....
