Sun It Rises

Album: Fleet Foxes (2008)
  • Red squirrel in the morning
    Red squirrel in the evening
    Red squirrel in the morning, I'm coming to take you home

    The sun rises, over my head
    In the morning, when I
    Hold me dear, into the night
    Sun it will rise soon in the falling

    The sun rising, dangling there
    Golden and fair, in the sky

    Ooh, ooh Writer/s: Robin Noel Pecknold
