Lyrics 

Eagle’s calling and he’s calling your name

Tides are turning, bringing winds of change

Why do I feel this way?

The promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

As through time the earth moves under my feet

One step closer to make love complete

What has the final say?

The promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

The promise

And so time over time

What will change the world?

No one knows (no one knows)

So the only promise is a day to live, to give

And share with one another

See the wisdom from mistakes in our past

Hear the younger generation ask

“Why do I feel this way?”

The promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day (a new day)

The promise, the promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

We can, we can make it better, baby

So time over time

What will change the world?

No one knows (no one knows)

So the only promise is a day to live, to give

And share with one another

Eagle’s calling and he’s calling your name

Tides are turning, bringing winds of change

Why do I feel this way

The promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

As through time the earth moves under my feet

One step closer to make love complete

What has the final say?

The promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

Oh, promise me (the promise, the promise of a new day)

A new day (the promise, the promise of a new day)

A new day (the promise, the promise of a new day)

See the wisdom from mistakes in our past

Hear the younger generation ask

“What has the final say?”

The promise of a new day

(The promise, the promise of a new day)

Eagle’s calling and he’s calling your name

Tides are turning, bringing winds of change

Why do I feel this way?

The promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

The promise, the promise of a new day

Why do I feel this way? Hey

The promise, the promise of a new day

Eagle’s calling, and he’s calling your name (the promise, the promise of a new day)

Tides are turning, bringing winds of change (the promise, the promise of a new day)

(The promise, the promise of a new day)

As through time the earth moves under my feet (the promise, the promise of a new day)

(The promise, the promise of a new day)

One step closer to love (the promise, the promise of a new day)

(The promise, the promise of a new day)
