It all went wrong today
We'll dream the night away
And maybe there's a trace
Of a brighter side
'Cause if we're out of those
It's over I suppose
So smile

Let your tears fall off tonight
Joy rides on the sun
Everything will be alright
Joy rides on the sun
There's a new spark in the sky
Morning's gonna come
Let your tears fall off tonight
Joy rides on the sun

Give me the bad news first
'Cause the good news' probably worse
My feelings don't get hurt anymore
It's always do or die
And I don't have the time
So smile

Hold on
The world is our merry-go-round

    General CommentJust listened to this song for the first time on a plane to DC; the song kinda came on at an interesting time, as we had just came over the top of the clouds on a rainy day, the sun peaked out. The meaning I was taking from the song at the time, was after the all things id been through in ATL, I was heading to somewhere where I could put everything behind me and just look to a brighter future. There is a new spark in the sky.

    Song MeaningThe chorus is pretty obvious:

    "Morning's gonna come, Let your tears fall off tonight"

    ...weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
    Psalms 30:5
