"Brand New Day" Lyrics

Thelma Houston

How many of you people out there
You've been hurt in some kind of love affair
And how many times do you swear
You'll never love again?

How many lonely, sleepless nights?
How many lies and how many fights?
And why would you want to put
Yourself through all that again?

Love is pain, I hear you say
Love has a cruel and a bitter way
Of paying you back for all the faith
You ever had in your brain

How could it be that what you need the most
Can leave you feeling just like a ghost?
You never want to feel so sad and lost again

One day you could be looking
Through an old book in rainy weather
You see a picture of him smiling at you
When you was still together

You could be walking down the street
And who should you chance to meet
But that same old smile
That you've been thinking of all day

Turn the clock to zero, honey
Sell the stock, spend all the money
Starting up a brand new day

Turn the clock all the way back
Wonder if you'll take me back
Thinking in a brand new way

Turn the clock to zero, mister
Never never know how much I missed you
Starting up a brand new day

Turn the clock to zero, boss
The river's wide, we'll swim across
Started up a brand new day

It can happen to you, just like it happened to me
There's simply no immunity, there's no guarantee
I say love is such a force that if you find yourself in it
And sometimes no reflection is there
But baby wait a minute, wait a minute
Wait a minute, wait a minute

Turn the clock to zero, honey
Sell the stock, spend all the money
Starting up a brand new day

Turn the clock to zero, Mac
I'm begging him to take me back
Thinking in a brand new way

Turn the clock to zero, boss
The river's wide, we'll swim across
Started up a brand new day

Turn the clock to zero, buddy
Don't wanna be no fuddy duddy
Starting up a brand new
A brand new, a brand new day

I'm the rhythm in your tune
I'm the sun and you're the moon
I'm a bat and you're the cave
You're the beach and I'm the wave

You're the plow and I'm the land
You're the glove and I'm the hand
I'm the train and you're the station
I'm a flagpole to your nation

Stand up all you lovers in the world
Stand up, stand up and be counted every boy and every girl
Stand up, stand up all you lovers in the world
Starting up a brand new day

I'm the present to your future
You're the wound and I'm the suture
I'm the magnet to your pole
I'm the Devil in your soul

You're the pupil, I'm the teacher
You're the church and I'm the preacher
You're the flower, I'm the rain
You're the tunnel, I'm the train

Stand up, stand up all you lovers in the world
Stand up and be counted every boy and every girl
Stand up, stand up all you lovers in the world
Starting up a brand new day

You're the crop to my rotation
You're the sum of my equation
I'm the answer to your question
If you follow my suggestion

We can turn this ship around
We'll go up instead of down
You're the pan and I'm the handle
You're the flame and I'm the candle

Stand up, stand up all you lovers in the world
Stand up and be counted every boy and every girl
Stand up, stand up all you lovers in the world
We're starting up a brand new day

Stand up, stand up all you lovers in the world
Starting up a brand new day
Stand up, stand up all you lovers in the world
We're starting up a brand new day
