Song Lyrics

Summer stretching on the grass
Summer dresses pass
In the shade of a willow tree
Creeps a crawling over me
Over me and over you
Stuck together with God’s glue
It’s gonna get stickier too

It’s been a long hot summer
Let’s get under cover
Don’t try too hard to think
Don’t think at all

Staring at the sun

Staring at the sun

There’s an insect in your ear
If you scratch it won’t disappear
It’s gonna itch and burn and sting
You wanna see what the scratching brings
Waves that leave me out of reach
Breaking on your back like a beach
Will we ever live in peace?

‘Cause those that can’t do / (Those that can’t do)

Often have to / (Often have to)
No those that can’t do / (Those that can’t do)

Often have to preach

Staring at the sun

Staring at the sun

Intransigence is all around
Military still in town
Armour plated suits and ties
Daddy just won’t say goodbye
Referee won’t blow the whistle
God is good but will He listen
I’m nearly great
But there’s something missing

I left it in the / (I left in the)
Duty free area / (Duty free area)
But you never really belonged to me

I’m not the only one
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you’d find
If you stepped back inside
Not sucking on my thumb
I’m staring at the sun
Not the only one
Who’s happy to go
Happy to go
Happy to go blind

I’m happy to go blind
Happy to go blind
I’m happy to go
Happy to go
Happy to go…

(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)

(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)
(Happy to go)

Staring at the sun


Staring at the sun
