No Sunlight

  • When I was young, lying in the grass
    I felt so safe in a warming bath
    Of sunlight
    Of sunlight.

    Vast open sky
    Could do no harm
    Like an embrace
    From mother's arms
    In sunlight
    In sunlight.

    In sunlight
    In sunlight.

    With every year that came to pass
    More clouds appear until the sky went black
    And there was
    No sunlight,
    No sunlight.
    And there was
    No sunlight,
    No sunlight anymore.

    You disappeared at the same speed
    The idealistic things I believed
    The optimist died inside of me
    No sunlight,
    No sunlight.

    No sunlight,
    No sunlight.

    You disappeared with the same speed
    The idealistic thing I believed
    The optimist died inside of me
    No sunlight,
    No sunlight.

    No sunlight,
    No sunlight.

    No sunlight,
    No sunlight,
    No sunlight,
    No sunlight anymore. Writer/s: BENJAMIN GIBBARD, CHRISTOPHER WALLA
