about

The Andean New Year (or Winter Solstice) is celebrated in Bolivia on the night of July 20th by greeting the sunrise on July 21st.

lyrics

If you’re lonely, don’t tell me
If you’re lonely, don’t cry to me

For I’ve been lonely too
I’m not going back through that door

Have you ever seen a face of pure joy?
Well, I have
Have you heard a heart sing?
Well, I have—I have.

If I’m crying, don’t mind me
If I’m crying, let me be

For I get lonely too
I’m just passing back through that door

Have you ever been forgiven before you could ask?
Well, I have
Have you ever found the most difficult task is to be loved?
Well, I have

If I’m lonely, don’t cry for me
And if I’m crying, let me be

For I’ve seen glory too
And I don’t mind going through that door

Have you ever seen the sunrise like a holiday?
Did you raise your arms up and offer praise?
When the first light hit your face,
Did your eyes fill with tears from the grace?
Of the miracle of another day

Of the miracle of another day

Of the miracle of another day
