Ah, the smooth sounds of Bill Withers. This song — “Lovely Day” — offers a quiet, silky joy and showcases his ability to conjure dual emotions at the same time.

Bill Withers was born on July 4, 1938, and was the youngest of six children. We will live his early life to you to discover in books or on the Internet, but we can tell you that by the time he had established his career in singing, he had recorded several major hits (Lean on Me; Ain’t No Sunshine; Use Me; Just the Two of Us; and Grandma’s Hands). He won three Grammy Awards and was nominated for several more.

so here, without further ado, is the quietly joyful song, “Lovely Day!”

When I wake up in the morning, love
And the sunlight hurts my eyes
And something without warning, love
Bears heavy on my mind

Then I look at you
And the world’s alright with me
Just one look at you
And I know it’s gonna be
A lovely day
A lovely day

When the day that lies ahead of me
Seems impossible to face
When someone else instead of me
Always seems to know the way

Then I look at you
And the world’s alright with me
Just one look at you
And I know it’s gonna be
A lovely day
A lovely day

When the day that lies ahead of me
Seems impossible to face
When someone else instead of me
Always seems to know the way

Then I look at you
And the world’s alright with me
Just one look at you
And I know it’s gonna be
A lovely day
A lovely day
