sound on & autorun

sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset

is this the little girl i carried?

is this the little boy at play?

i don’t remember growing older when did they?

Kim Novak

when did she get to be a beauty?

when did he grow to be so tall?

wasn’t it yesterday that they were small?

sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset

swiftly flow the days

seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers

blossoming even as they gaze…

sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset

swiftly fly the years

one season following another

laden with happiness and tears

one season following another

laden with happiness and tears

sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset

sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset

sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset

is this the little girl i carried?

is this the little boy at play?

i don’t remember growing older when did they?

Natalie Wood

when did she get to be a beauty?

when did he grow to be so tall?

wasn’t it yesterday that they were small?

sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset

swiftly flow the days

seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers

blossoming even as they gaze…

sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset

swiftly fly the years

one season following another

laden with happiness and tears…

one season following another

laden with happiness and tears…

sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset

sunrise sunset
