That Was A Good Day

Iíve seen some dark times.

Iíve crossed some hard lines.

Iíve read some dark signs along the way.

Now thatís behind me.

Trouble canít find me.

In my mind peace is here to stay.

 

That was a good day, a really good day,

That was a good day when you found me.

That was a good day, such a good day,

That was a good day when you found me.

 

So many black clouds

Hung like a black shroud

With no way back out that I could see.

You brought the sunlight.

You keep the sun bright.

You are the one light that shines for me.

 

That was a good day, a mighty good day,

That was a good day when I found you.

That was a good day, boy, what a good day,

That was a good day when I found you.

 

That was a good day, truly a good day,

That was a good day when you found me.

That was a good day, an extra good day,

That was a good day when I found you.
