Little River Band - Light Of Day Lyrics




Many a time the thought crossed my mind,
Wond'rin 'bout people who walk around blind,
They don't seem to see the light of day,
Everything is just okay.

Taking no head of what they can learn,
Running in circles, no point of return,
Heading for the door that reads escape,
Anything that they can take.

Hey boys, come out and dig the dance,
Come on and take a chance,
Believe in the light of day.

Lonesome nights and wasted days,
Leads a man from his true ways,
Yet he tells you he nobody's fool,
Breaking every golden rule.

Hey boys, come out and dig the dance,
Come on and take a chance, believe in the light of day.

Keep a watch on the sandman of time,
Will he gaze into your eyes or mine,
Will he knock on your door,
And invite you to the other side,
Catch him writing the score,
As he takes you on another ride,
hang on tight boy, you're starting to slide.

Hey boys, come out and dig the dance,
Come on and take a chance,
Believe in the light of day,
Believe in the light of day.

  5. John Benn

    WOW WOW WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    From a mad keen 75yo Aussie fan.
    Amazing sounds from a great group.

  6. Doug L.64

    The greatest LRB cut. Hands down! Beeb at his best. Sweet harmonies!!

  7. Lincoln I Bochi

    Wow! Thanks, Ron.

  8. Brian

    This song is a masterpiece.Love the LRB!!!

  9. GAGE HART

    I'm an artist and I get my inspiration from this , I'm going to makes something bad ass. Like drawing tho

  10. JJ McCartney

    Rarely in rock music does a song showcase a bass player so well.i always loved the style of rhythm and the unique bass playing throughout their first few albums released in the U.S. really hooked me on LRB.

    Without Birtles, Shorrock and Goble, the posers calling themselves Little River Band is a bad joke.

  11. Dust A.D

    Holy smack, this song is insaaanely good! One of their best eaaasily

  12. Corea Kixx

    This epic track is hands down my favorite Beeb Birtles song, both vocally, and musically. I just can't play this loud enough.

  13. frank gibson

    Songwriting by Bruce Springsteen

    zoomosis

    Unfortunately Google erroneously credits Springsteen for writing this LRB song, however Springsteen wrote his song "Light Of Day" in the early 1980s. It was recorded by Joan Jett & Michael J Fox for the movie of the same name, released in 1987. The song in this video was written by Beeb Birtles.

  14. Charles Jones

    I LOVE THIS SONG FOREVER, IT'S SO SMOOTH AND COOL TO YOUR MIND. AND THE WAY THEY SING IT..... THE HARMONY IS TIGHT AND SPOT ON. THESE GUYS REALLY HAD SOMETHING SPECIAL. THE FRETLESS BASS SOLO @ 5:35,JUST TAKES YOU RIGHT IN..... WOW !!! BUT IT'S A SHAME THAT THEY AREN'T TOGETHER ANY MORE, OR SPEAKING TO EACH OTHER, THE LAST I HEARD ABOUT THEM. AAAH MAN, WHAT A SHAME. ALSO I HEARD THAT THERE ARE TWO LITTLE RIVER BANDS OUT ON THE ROAD. WITH EACH GROUP HAS ORIGINAL MEMBERS, THAT'S CLAIMING THE BAND'S NAME. WHAT A MESS, AFTER 6 YEARS TOGETHER, CREATED SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SONGS .

    Filthy McNasty

    They still speak.

  15. Doy Rayburn

    God those were the days...this carried me through many a night...

  16. Tez McFez

    When will we produce this kinda talent ever again ... timeless great music ... thank you
    LRB, uno who u r ... we do!

  17. Nicolas J Nyerges M

    PATETICO QUIENES PUBLICAN EN YOUTUBE SOLO MUSICA. YOUTUBE ES VIDEO, NO SOLO AUDIO. Para Audio estan otros con mejor calidad

  18. Nicolas J Nyerges M

    FULL STEREO . Muchos tenemos el disco original. Pero nadie tiene se a dignado en buscar un VIDEO EN VIDO de una intenpretacion de Little River Band interprentando a Light of day. Todos se conforman con esto. Seria bueno que busquen el grupo tcando en vivo. Si no para que publican en Youtube solo un AUDIO?

  19. rawcoyote

    I have loved this song for so long; it's my fav of all of their stuff, yeah, this.

  20. Ricky A Doyle

    Little River Band from 1975-1981 made some excellent thought provoking music. Quality

  21. Harald Knorz

    After so many years finally on Youtube...the ultimate best song they ever done

  22. Jojo

    I was first introduced to this Aussie band by my friend when I was 17 back in oooh... 1981?? Love this song and "Fall From Paradise" in particular. Great vocalist, and the groove really kicks in at the end (from 4:30-ish)

  23. Daniel Denton

    The vocals and harmony are spotless

    Doug L.64

    Easily as good as Toto ever was.

  24. dale cota

    great fuckin  song

  25. highflyingnote

    I had forgot this song...was glad to rediscover it...it came at the 'right' time...

  26. Patrick O'Connor

    Can't believe this wasn't on their 'Greatest Hits' album??? That album was certainly not for the true music lover. :(

    Corea Kixx

    I agree totally, Patrick...The entire Sleeper Catcher album was just about the greatest thing released in 1978. WOW!!! There were so many LRB deep cuts on this, and many other albums from these guy's, it was unreal. VIVA AUSTRALIA!!!

  27. jesusheals2

    This song let you know this band could really play if they wanted to be set free from being told to produce hits!!!

    Patrick O'Connor

    Definitely!!! This is by far their best song. Adult sound, nothing commercial about this GEM!!!!

    Joseph Landry

    very well said, jesusheals2.

  28. hans brus

    What can I say? Just beautiful!!!

  29. LDI.Carlos Riojas

    This is not available on mobile...what a freaking shame.

  30. Filthy McNasty

    George McArdle was the man!!

    Ron Cole

    Great bass work in this song!

    Corea Kixx

    You are correct Filthy...this man had soul, and a whole lot of groove. And I love your Horace Silver referrence in your handle. One of my favorite composer/pianists of all time.

  31. PaJó Afonso

    beautiful ............uff !
