Sunrise, Sunset

Album: Fevers and Mirrors (2000)
  • Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset, swiftly go the days
    Sunrise, sunset, you wake up then you undress, it always is the same
    The sunrise and the sunsets, you're lying while you confess, keep trying to explain
    The sunrise and the sunsets, you realise then you forget what you've been trying to retain

    But everybody knows it's all about the things that get stuck inside of your head
    Like the songs your roommate sings, a vision of her body as she stretches out on your bed
    And she raised her hands in the air, asked you when was the last time you looked in the mirror
    Because you've changed
    Yeah, you've changed

    The sunrise, the sunsets, you're hopeful and then you regret, the circle never breaks
    With a sunrise and a sunset, there's a change of heart or address, is there nothing that remains?
    For a sunrise or a sunset, you're manic or you're depressed, will you ever feel okay?
    For a sunrise or a sunset, your lover is an actress, did you really think she'd stay?

    For a sunrise or a sunset, you're either coming or you just left, but you're always on the way
    Towards a sunrise or a sunset, a scribble or a sonnet, they are really just the same
    To the sunrise or a sunset, the master and his servant have exactly the same fate
    It's a sunrise and a sunset, from a cradle to a casket, there is no way to escape
    The sunrise and a sunset, hold your sadness like a puppet, keep putting on the play

    But everything you do is leading to the point where you just won't know what to do
    At that moment you may laugh but there is someone there who will be laughing louder than you
    So it's true, the trick is complete, you become everything you said you never would be
    You're a fool; you're a fool!

    Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset, sunrise and the sunsets
    Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, the sunsets, the sunrise, the sunsets
    Sunrise, sunset, go home to your apartment, put the cassette in the tape deck and let that fever play
    Sunrise, sunset, where are you Arienette?
    Where are you Arienette? Writer/s: OBERST, Conor Oberst
