"Time For the Sun to Rise" as written by and Earl King Johnson....
I.
Last night as I lie sleeping
I had dreams of a place untold
You never see people weeping
There's no wars and no greed for gold
It's a place where love can unfold

A.
But by the time my dream is in stride
It's time for that ol' sun to rise
Oh sunrise on the horizon beneath the sky
Oh sunrise you always catch me by surprise

II.
I'm always returning to reality
Leaving that world of love and peace
One thing I'm sure ain't no fantasy
It's the place I'll always want to be
And the girl I met must be for me (repeat A)

B.
Oh sunrise why must you come so soon
Oh sunrise you don't soothe me like the moon

III.
Each night I go back to love-land
A name I heard some fellow say
I found me a loving hand
But somehow I just can't stay
'Cause each time she fade away

But by the time, my dream is in stride
It's time for that ol' sun to rise (repeat B)
