Baby, every cloud has a silver lining
Baby, every dog really has its day
And it matters to me to see you smiling
Why don't we blow all your cares away?

Yesterday's gone and will be forgotten
And today is where every new day starts
Got to be free like the leaves in Autumn
You may be sad but it never lasts

And maybe, by the evening we'll be laughing
Just wait and see all the changes there'll be
By the time it gets dark

We could go out walking out in the sunshine
Look at all the people out in the street
Hurrying away to their business functions
Waiting for a taxi for aching feet

Light up your face, baby
Let's get going
Wanna see a change in those weary eyes
We'll have some fun
Take a boat out rowing
Why ever should life so serious?

And maybe, by the evening we'll be laughing
Just wait and see all the changes there'll be
By the time it gets dark

And maybe, by the evening we'll be laughing
Just wait and see all the changes there'll be
By the time it gets dark
By the time it gets dark
By the time it gets dark
By the time it gets dark...
