we were sun and rain  

we were off and on

we were chords in a changing song

we were joy and pain

we were weak and strong

but we were moving all along

 

I can't stop you now

and I won't even try

it's your turn now to choose

to rejoice or to clown

to laugh or to cry

yes, it's your turn now to choose

 

Sunshine rain descends

on this hot gray afternoon

it's coming to an end for you

it's warm and wet

this closing tune

it's a kiss of luck for you

I'll sing for you again some day

we'll sit and let this music play

but this closing tune will always stay

'cause sometimes these things turn out

this way

 

But I can't stop you now

I won't even try

it's your turn now to choose

to rejoice or to clown

to laugh or to cry

it's your turn now to choose

 

No I can't stop you now

and I won't even try

it's your turn now to choose

to see what you found

in both of our lives

it's your turn now to choose

yes

it's your turn now

to choose

  

 

Your Turn Now to Choose

 

Sunshine rain descends

on a hot gray afternoon

it's coming to an end for you

it's warm and wet

this closing tune

it's a kiss of luck for you

your guard is up

your eyes say that

it's like an umbrella for your feelings

so you use that crutch

to hide the fact

that your pounding heart is reeling

 

Dances came and went

like trends in magazines

you took and you gave yourself to me

all the time we spent

are banks of memories

that you can draw upon for free
