Lyrics

Some only see darkness in life
They spend there days mired deep in strife
They watch the news and see only woes
But I’ve never been one of those

I’M ONE WITH THE SUN
I’M ONE WITH THE SUN

I SPLIT THE NIGHT AND I WASH IT AWAY
I LEAVE THE STARS WITH NOTHING TO SAY

You’ll get a tan when I come in the room
Your spirits soar, your prospects bloom
I’m hell on wheels in a bar room fight
No one can touch me, I’m too damn bright

CHORUS: REPEAT

Round and round, day to day
Smiling like a fool
Never know quite why

(solo)

There’ll come a day when my light will fade
My spirit’s gone, my body decayed
But don’t you worry, I’ll not be far
Just take a glance at the closest star

Round and round, day to day
Smiling like a fool
Never know quite why

I’M ONE WITH THE SUN (x6)

Notes

People consistently tell us that this is our most “modern” sounding song even though it’s little more than an updated Motown piece. Odd…
