a new dawn

Taken with a Vivitar at dawn on the day the new president got elected.

After all the history lessons in school it was hard to believe that a revolution had taken place so considerably peacefully compared to all the other revolutions around the world. Cause revolution has almost always been associated with mass bloodshed and death and more often than not, civil war.

Birds flyin' high you know how I feel

Sun in the sky you know how I feel

Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel

Its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life for me

yeah, its a new dawn its a new day its a new life for me

AND I'M FEELING GOOD

 

Fish in the sea, you know how I feel

River runnin' free you know how I feel

Blossom on the tree you know how I feel

Its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life for me

And I'm feelin good

 

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what i mean dont you know

Butterflies all havin' fun you know what I mean

Sleepin' peace when day is done that's what I mean

And this old world is a new world and a bold world for me

 

Stars when you shine you know how I feel

Scent of the crime you know how I feel

Your freedom is mine, and I know how I feel

Its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life for me

OH I'M FEELING GOOD
