This off-album love song speaks of love, the enduring kind. Recorded live, just acoustic guitar/voice together, on tape, it is a one-take that lies in its own universe. There is an official music video for it on YouTube which reflects the story itself.


The Day's Begun @Laforge/Randall

I lie awake, there’s no mistake
I’ve got worries on my mind
Those dreams you know, they haunt me so
The ones where I’m driving blind
Car goes slow but she won’t let go, runs the red light down
The trees surround and waters ‘round, and I’m feeling bound

But then I wake and you’re beside me
But then I see in your sleep your smiling

Love has won

A troubled life is put to rest
All’s forgiven and forgot
You dress me up in blue and gold and we’ll throw that dog a bone
The wheels of life grind slowly but they grind very fine
Our journey through space, an odyssey awake, your hand in mine

And when I wake you’re beside me
And then I see in your sleep your smiling

We have won, the day’s begun

Seasons change we stay the same
You’re my favorite lullaby
We’ll paint the sky just you and I and
I’ll dance for you ‘til dawn
I’ll find the words to fill your song, let the poetry unfold
And God I find in those details, just shelter me from harm

We have won, the day’s begun
We have won, the day’s begun
