The Sun Puts You to Sleep

(also recorded as 'Return of the Sun')



Look at you now.
That candyland smile.
I guess you took that road
One too many times.

And the way you dress up.
Dixie cup style.
Brings tears to the eyes
Of the ones you idolized
{90 years ago}

-so you say this is easy
-seems to be pleasing
-do a line, pass the time
-till the sun puts you to sleep

-yes, this looks so simple
-your lying smile
-the world in your dimple
-and I'll waste another night here with you.

I can feel the rain
Running on every line of your face
I wish I were there
In every gleam of your eyes.

My hands on my mouth
And if I should start to doubt me
Reassure me one more time
Hold me here, till the sun puts us to sleep.
{feel it sinking slow}

-tell me more
-in your delicate way
-make me believe
-I can't believe anymore.

-slice me up
-I know I've felt this before
-lick me clean
-I can't believe anymore.

My night is ruthless.
Too quiet, I can't stay here.
Forced under I can cling
Forced silent, I can't sing

Weren't we perfect
Under stars we all shine
Needing something, feeling something..
Till the sun puts me to sleep
