For the sun
For the light
For the ride and for the masters
We come to be kind
To be warm here and after
We've been out
But we're back
Because we're graced in these matters
And we'll rise.
And we did a little love
But we walked
We make a sound for the mesto
Make a little call to the right
to the ball and to the mast-top
And we

We fool around now and again
We're looking good
But just as friends.

And this is our heyday baby
And we're not gonna be afraid to shout
'Cause we can make our heyday last forever
And ain't that what it's all about
Oh living, in our own terrible way.

And we lack a little love, but a sign
A sign to get a little messed up
Picking up the rules, for the chimes
Making up minds and making it last us
'Cause we live alone, and now we're grown
And we know what we're after
And we'll rise

We fool around ...

And this is our heyday ...

    General Commentthis song is indeed from the guinness ad but it should not be remembered purely for thsi reason. mic christopher was a hugely talented man and a legend in his own right. this song is about how when everyone is old they speak of their "heyday" and mic thought it appropriate to right a song while he was and while we all are in our heyday! its a beautiful song written by a beautiful person who died too young

    General CommentMic, said this song wasn' only about a persons Heyday, but why should a Heyday end, and that it could last forever.

    General CommentCLOM!! is right, Mic often said in his live shows that when he saw the word "Heyday" it was always used to denote a person's best work or best time of their life, and people would say it had now passed. Mic thought you should always live in the best time of your life, and always do your best work, and this song and album stands to him. Rest in peace Mic, and God bless you for the music you made.
