Sunshine In The Sidewalk

Cinematic, Rock ballad 
Divine intervention makes an unusual appearance in one's darkest
hour. "When I'd lost all hope in God's creation, Heaven sent illumination."


Verse One

This sidewalk leads me to the river wide. 
These dark clouds follow on every side. 
The old bridge there will deliver me,
From this cruel world, too full of misery.

Verse Two

Why not slip through the fog and say goodbye.
Let the current take me to the other side.
Too much pain and suffering, no empathy.
More hate than loving.  Why must this be?

Pre-Chorus

Who blew out the candle and let the darkness in?
Why keep up the battle when only the heartless win?
The whole Planet's crying, 
I can't find a silver lining.
Then I see a little dandelion.

Chorus

Sunshine in the sidewalk.
Sunshine in the sidewalk.
Divine intervention beckons my attention.
Through a crumbling human race,
There ascends a saving grace.

Sunshine in the sidewalk.
Sunshine in the sidewalk.

A heart so dark with sorrow,
Has no light to see tommorrow.
But when I'd lost all hope in God's creation,
Heaven sent illumination.

Verse Three

It was the light of a dandelion,
That saved my life in the nick of time.
Who could love enough to be so kind.
Must be the light of the One Divine.

Pre-Chorus

Who blew out the candle and let the darkness in?
Why keep up the battle when only the heartless win?
The whole Planet's crying, 
I can't find a silver lining.
Then I see a little dandelion.


Chorus

Sunshine in the sidewalk.
Sunshine in the sidewalk.
Divine intervention beckons my attention.
Through a crumbling human race,
There ascends a saving grace.

Sunshine in the sidewalk.
Sunshine in the sidewalk.
A heart so dark with sorrow,
Has no light to see tommorrow.
But when I'd lost all hope in God's creation,
Heaven sent illumination.
