SOMETHING NEW

See how good the sun can seem 
Shining, almost blinding, through your window. 
Reflecting in your eyes of green, 
Reminding me and finding me with you. 
     Can it be true? 
     Has last night become today with you? 
     A stranger who turned into someone I knew. 
See how good the sun can seem 
When it shows us that we have found tomorrow 
     and something new. 
 
Find how fine the future feels, 
Striving and arriving like a feather. 
What's given we don't have to steal 
Possessing and caressing for a while. 
     Show me your smile. 
     I'd like to get to know more of your style. 
Find how fine the future feels 
If it fits the two of us together. 
 
     They tell you that there's nothing new under the sun, 
     But we can see right now that is not true. 
     I know I've never been here before with anyone 
     I think that you and I are something new. 
 
          Sunshine and skin, comfort and love. 
          Hair flashing everywhere on your pillow. 
          Goodness is everywhere, come from above, 
          Just as good as that which came from below. 

          But what if the sunshine turns to rain? 
          Can we attain all that we knew last night again? 
          Pleasure or pain?  It's all in vain 
          To wish we knew. 
 
Let's see how long this love can last, 
If even for just one more golden sunrise. 
You know, last night is the distant past, 
Tomorrow could be sorrow when it's gone. 
     Here is the dawn 
     And last night seems to still be going on 
     The light has come, whereupon we see the view. 
Let's see how long this love can last, 
Maybe we have found the big surprise 
     Of something new. 
 
Yes, let's see how long this love can last, 
If even just for one more golden moment 
     Of something new.
