Rock Ballad of the Week: Spiral Starecase “Our Day Will Come”

Our day will come
And we’ll have everything
We’ll share the joy
Falling in love can bring
No one can tell me that I’m too young to know
I love you so and you love me

Our day will come
If we just wait awhile
No tears for us
Think love and wear a smile
Our dreams have magic because we’ll always be
In love this way
Our day will come
Our day will come
Our day will come
