Stonehaven Sunset the water's on fire
My true love is singing, we kiss and conspire
Sing a song for the ocean a song for the sky
A song for tomorrow love sweet by and by
For the child who is coming and for dreams that come true
Sing a song for each other for me and for you
Sing a song for all lovers all the stars in the skies
Sing a Stonehaven water home, Stonehaven Sunrise.

Stonehaven sunset the desert's on fire
Christ on the cross again burns with desire
They are shooting at random though they aim at us all
It's the children who rise up and children who fall
All the angels are weeping the sweetest of tears
Fall like rivers of mercy to wash all our fears
Sing a song for Old Glory and a future that dies
Sing a Stonehaven desert's home, Stonehaven Sunrise.

Stonehaven Sunset the city's on fire
The soldiers just smile and say this gun's for hire
Give in to the beast boy give in to the thrill
It's just human nature to hunt and to kill
We all die together and yet somehow alone
Just together we have memories and many are gone
Singing songs for old soldiers a chorus of sights
Sing of Stonehaven city's home, Stonehaven Sunrise.

Stonehaven Sunset the mountain's on fire
My spirit is lifted, rising higher and higher
All the prophets are laughing they say we told you so
It's one thing to play guessing games, another to know
For the needs of many are the sins of a few
And the day is forthcoming when accounting is due
Sing a song for sweet justice with a fire in her eyes
Sing of Stonehaven mountain home, Stonehaven Sunrise.

Stonehaven Sunset the water's on fire
My true love is singing, we kiss and conspire
Sing a song for the ocean a song for the sky
Sing a song for tomorrow love sweet by and by
For the child who is coming and for dreams that come true
Sing a song for each other for me and for you
Sing a song for all lovers all the stars in the skies
Sing a Stonehaven water home, Stonehaven Sunrise.
