Day Is Done (Elton John)

Written by Nick Drake 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 When the night is cold Some get by but some get old Just to show life's not made of gold When the night is cold When the bird has flown Got no one to call your own Got no place to call your home Now the bird has flown 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 Didn't do the things you meant to do Now there's no time to to start anew Now the party's through 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 Day is done When the day is done
