America - Sergeant Darkness Lyrics




Thank the morning for bringing you
Hope you never turn your head and run
And thank the sun for shining, too
Hope the darkness never comes again
What it does to me
Isn't good to see

You say that fortune brought you
Sailin' cross the sea
I don't believe you
I don't see how it's true
I think my dreamin' brought you here
And if I wake tomorrow will you still be near

Once a miser, twice a son
Three's a devil, four's a lot of fun
Fun for living one and all
Start a battle, who's the first to fall
Hope it isn't me
Have to wait and see

You say that fortune brought you
Sailin' cross the sea
I don't believe you
I don't see how it's true
I think my dreamin' brought you here
If I wake tomorrow will you still be near
Should I live with rain and then the sky will clear

    The album Harbor was one of later efforts before Dan Peek (playing acoustic guitar) left the band. Critics give it mixed reviews, but this tune is a real gem. Hauntingly beautiful.

  14. Train Sail

    Lovely to see this! Many thanks! Goodness! Weren't we all young then! There are parts to this song I like, but I don't think it's up to the usual America standard. It's nostalgic, and that's about it, really. Further, much as I was totally infatuated by Gerry Beckley as a youngster, looking back at this now, I do wish he didn't contort his body and mouth when he sings as it appears so affected. He obviously knows the camera's on him. Sorry!

    Train Sail, according to Dan's Book "An American Band" Dan writes that Sergeant Darkness and Monster were thinly veiled stabs at him. Both written by Gerry about Dan's downward spiral, so the song goes deep. : )

  15. Cristinact

    Impeccable!

    Thereza Dantas

    I love Gerry Beckley so much. Gerry, my sweet boy.
