Behind The Sun

Album: Uplift Mofo Party Plan (1987)
  • One day while bathing in the sea
    My talking dolphin spoke to me
    He spoke to me in symphony
    From freedom's peace beneath the sea
    He looked to me eyes full of love
    Said yes we live behind the sun

    Behind the sun
    Behind the sun
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Behind the sun

    The sun goes up and the sun gets down
    But like the heart of the sun my heart continues to pound

    Behind the sun

    Now while I shower in the rain
    I watch my dolphin swim away
    The one who listens to the surf
    Can feel the pulse beat of the earth
    And like my dolphin swims so free
    The sun does swim into the sea

    Behind the sun
    Behind the sun
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,yeah
    Behind the sun
    Behind the sun

    An island flying through the sky
    One day your son might ask you why
    And if you son should be a girl
    She too might ask you of this world
    The sun shines sweet upon your beach
    And yes my dolphin loves to teach

    Behind the sun
    Behind the sun
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,yeah
    Behind the sun

    The sun goes up and the sun gets down
    But like the heart of the sun my heart continues to pound

  • Lydia Mcgowan from Monkstown Co. Dublin IrelandVery catchy song!
  • Liz from Sydney, AustraliaIf there ever was an epic 80's anthem, this is totally it. The peppers played from their hearts, its just that their hearts were totally drugged up. None the less, this is awesome.
  • Peter from Penistown, Ilthis song sounds like some sort of LSD trip
  • Don from San Antonio, TxGreat surf song!
