Songfacts®:

  • Karen Peris, lead singer of The Innocence Mission, explained the Sun on the Square album opener is about "the way other things, like the weather, or the music we're listening to, can sometimes be felt to speak for us in place of words, which often fall short. Or the way everyday objects and actions can be felt as possible outward flowering of the internal life and of our best intentions (umbrellas open could be the arms we would reach, etc.)."
