Today's world needs a much, much brighter day… This is a throw-back, three-part vocal and guitar song - a faint, reminiscent remembrance of Peter, Paul, and Mary.

Lyrics
I’m looking to find a time
Another place, some peace of mind
The troubled claims of today
Recede like clouds of yesterday.

Where is the goodness within the heart?
Where better angels take their part
Resisting envy, fear, and pride
Who will stand on mercy’s side?

Chorus:
I’m looking for a brighter day
“Wishful dreamer” someone will say
“Don’t you know that can never, never be.”
But turn around you might see…

I’m looking for the moment when
Man sees his neighbor as his friend
Owing love and nothing more
Building heaven’s treasure store.

I’m hoping for the promise of
A new heart born from above
In the image of the One
To any one and all who come.

I’m looking for a better home
A love that seeks not its own
A place of joy meant from the start
Charity in every heart.

Can you hear it? It’s in your ear
Let Wisdom draw you, draw you near
The day is dawning, dawning bright
Will you wake to see its light?

Getting all sentimental
Wow, you dredged up a good one from the lost shoals of the MacJams sea. Cool. I like how Roxylee gets the last word here.

always a brighter day...
when singing with you and Roxylee. This song came together quite well. I love the vocal harmonies by you two. And yeah, a real nice ad lib by Roxylee at the end. Turn around...

Nice song! Guitar + vocals is usually straightforward and direct, but you've got a lot going on here, so my attention never wandered.
Glad to see you reposting previous songs: I miss the days when this was a vital place & people came and went (instead of just 'went' ;-))

there's a folk duo from the past one doesn't hear of often. Nice to know this song reminded you of them and your younger days. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.

Brighter Days
I enjoyed this song immensely! The vocals were great, of course, sung by all my favorites, and the guitar was equally sweet; very fitting for the superb poetry and the message it contained. Thanks for sharing. Terry
