Elton John - "Day Is Done" lyrics

When the day is done Down to Earth then sinks the sun Along with everything that was lost and won When the day is done When the day is done Hope so much your race will be all run Then you find you jumped the gun Have to go back where you begun When the day is done Just to show life's not made of gold When the night is cold Some get by but some get old When the night is cold When the bird has flown Got no one to call your own Now the bird has flown Got no place to call your home When the game's been fought Newspaper blowing across the court Lost much sooner than you would have thought Now the game's been fought When the party's through Seems so very sad for you Now there's no time to to start anew Didn't do the things you meant to do When the day is done Now the party's through Down to Earth then sinks the sun Along with everything that was lost and won When the day is done When the day is done Day is done
