Lyrics [verse 1]:
WHY MUST I LIVE IN DREAMS
OF THE DAYS THAT I USED TO KNOW?
WHY CAN'T I FIND
REAL PEACE OF MIND,
AND RETURN TO THE LONG AGO?

[Chorus]:
WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT
MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY,
SOMEONE WAITS FOR ME.
AND THE GOLD OF HER HAIR
CROWNS THE BLUE OF HER EYES
LIKE A HALO, TENDERLY.

IF ONLY I COULD SEE HER,
HOW HAPPY I WOULD BE!

WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT
MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY,
SOMEONE WAITS FOR ME.

[verse 2]:
MEM'RIES COME BACK TO ME
OF A SUNSET BEHIND A HILL.
EACH NEW BORN DAY
TAKES ME AWAY
TO THE PLACE
THAT I LONG FOR STILL.

[Chorus]:
WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT
MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY,
SOMEONE WAITS FOR ME.
AND THE GOLD OF HER HAIR
CROWNS THE BLUE OF HER EYES
LIKE A HALO, TENDERLY.

IF ONLY I COULD SEE HER,
HOW HAPPY I WOULD BE!

WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT
MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY,
SOMEONE WAITS FOR ME.
