"Sunrise" as written by and Donna Jean Mackay....
Gazing at the fire, burning by the water
Before he speaks the world around us quiets.

With eyes as sharp as arrows and turning to the fire
He clears the air and cuts it with a feather.

Many in a circle slowly 'round the fire
When he is gone I want to know him better.

No one is forsaken, no one is a liar,
He plants the tree of life on our foreheads with water.

He hums, there are drums, four winds, rising suns,
We are singing and playing, I her him saying.

I remember breezes from winds inside your body
Keep me high, like I told you, I'll sing to them this story and know why.

    General CommentI just love the terrapin station album so much. This is a great song. It's got a big drum that plays at the end. It has a female singing vocals also.

    But all that Grateful Dead music toegether makes this a great song to enjoy for a long time.
