"Days in the Sun" is a song from the 2017 remake of Beauty and the Beast. It is performed when the castle objects and Belle go to sleep, and everybody has a flashback of what life for them used to be when they were human. It is a combination of a lullaby and a remembrance of happier days for everybody and for the prince from when his mother died when he was young.[1]

Lyrics

Young Prince:
Days in the sun
Where my life has barely begun
Not until my whole life is done
Will I ever leave you?

Cadenza:
Will I tremble again
To my dear one's gorgeous refrain?

Lumière and Plumette:
Will you now forever remain
Out of reach of my arms?

Mrs. Potts:
Oh, those days in the sun
What I'd give to relive just one
Undo what's done
And bring back the light

Madame de Garderobe:
Oh, I could sing
Of the pain these dark days bring
The spell we're under
Still it's the wonder of us
I sing of tonight

Belle:
How in the midst of all this sorrow
Can so much hope and love endure?
I was innocent and certain
Now I'm wiser but unsure

Belle and Madame de Garderobe:
I can't go back into my childhood
(Days of the past)
One that my father made secure
(All those precious days couldn't last)
I can feel a change in me
(Oh, hold me closer!)
I'm stronger now, but still not free

Castle Staff:
Days in the sun
Will return, we must believe
As lovers do
That days in the sun
Will come shining through

Days in the sun
When a life has barely begun
When love, no prize can be won
I remember warmly
Those days in the past
Far too perfect and peaceful to last
And the skies were soon overcast
And the days grew cold

Oh, those days in the sun
What I'd give to relive just one
Change what I've done
Turn my life around
But that isn't real
And the empty pain I feel
Goes on and on
And days in the sun
Are a long time gone

Days in the sun
Selfish days I used to call fun
Fooled myself stealing love on the run
While the light was fading
That far, distant time
When I saw no reason nor rhyme
To be changing my ways
But I'm not so certain now

And those days in the sun
What I'd give to relive just one
Change what I've done
Find some room for love
But I know the deal
And the empty pain I feel
Goes on and on
And days in the sun
Are a long time gone

I know the deal
And the love I must reveal
What I must do
For days in the sun
To come shining through

Queen
Rest now, my love
Days in the sun
Where your life has barely begun
Not until my own life is done
Could I ever leave you?

Cadenza:
Will I tremble again
To my dear one's gorgeous refrain?

Lumière and Plumette:
Will you now forever remain
Out of reach of my arms?

Mrs. Potts:
Oh, those days in the sun
What I'd give to relive just one
Undo what's done
And bring back the light

Madame de Garderobe:
Oh, I could sing
Of the pain these dark days bring
The spell we're under
Still it's the wonder of us
I sing of tonight

Belle:
How in the midst of all this sorrow
Can so much hope and love endure?
I was innocent and certain
Now I'm wiser but unsure

Belle and Madame de Garderobe:
I can't go back into my childhood
(Days of the past)
One that my father made secure
(All those precious days couldn't last)
Why am I still in this place
(Oh, hold me closer!)
He needs me!

Beast
What did I do?
How did I deserve losing you?
Please don't die,
You promised to be here with me forever

And now I'm frightened!

Castle Staff:
Days in the sun
Will return, we must believe
As lovers do
That days in the sun
Will come shining through
