Lyrics

Simba:
Where has the starlight gone?
Dark is the day
How can I find my way home?
Home is an empty dream
Lost to the night
Father, I feel so alone

You promised you'd be there
Whenever I needed you
Whenever I call your name
You're not anywhere
I'm trying to hold on
Just waiting to hear your voice
One word, just a word will do
To end this nightmare

When will the dawning break
Oh, endless night
Sleepless I dream of the day
When you were by my side
Guiding my path
Father, I can't find the way

You promised you'd be there
Whenever I needed you
Whenever I call your name
You're not anywhere
I'm trying to hold on
Just waiting to hear your voice
One word, just a word will do
To end this nightmare

Chorus:
I know that the night must end
And that the sun will rise
And that the sun will rise
I know that the clouds must clear
And that the sun will shine
And that the sun will shine

Chorus and Simba:
I know that the night must end
And that the sun will rise
And that the sun will rise
I know that the clouds must clear
And that the sun will shine

Chorus: / Simba:
And that the sun will shine / I know
I know that the night must end / Yes, I know
And that the sun will rise / The sun will rise
And that the sun will rise / Yes, I know
I know that the clouds must clear / I know
And that the sun will shine / The clouds must clear
And that the sun will shine
I know that the night must end / I know that the night must end
And that the sun will rise / I know that the sun will rise
And that the sun will rise / And I'll hear your voice deep inside
I know that the clouds must clear
And that the sun will shine
And that the sun will shine / I know that the night must end
I know that the night must end / And that the clouds must clear
And that the sun will rise / Oh, the sun, the sun will rise
And that the sun will rise
I know that the clouds must clear / The sun
And that the sun will shine / The sun will rise!
