Standing in the Sun

  • You're the dark to light
    You're never satisfied
    You only know the things that will fail to be
    A pessimistic one
    Who sees the end to come
    Where every joy is lost to a tragedy

    And still you wonder why you cannot find your peace today
    'Cause you were meant to live
    So much more than this
    Now if only you could see

    You could be standing out in the Sun
    Still the rain's coming down
    Rain's coming down
    There ain't a cloud in sight
    Still your heart beats cold and grey
    Every day

    You know it brings me down
    The way you drag around
    Your heavy heart just like a stone
    Well, keep your misery
    Don't put it all on me
    'Cause I've got problems of my own

    You could be standing out in the Sun
    Still the rain's coming down
    Rain's coming down
    So keep your cloud of darkness and doom off my parade
    Yeah today

    And if I go, you know I set off a spark
    I would burn it out, I would burn it all away
    If you're a fire jaded, cold calloused heart
    Some day, I'll find a way

    You could be standing out in the Sun
    Still the rain's coming down
    Rain's coming down
    There ain't a cloud in sight
    Still your heart beats cold and grey
    Every day

    You could be standing out in the Sun
    Still the rain's coming down
    Rain's coming down
    Someday I'll steal the spark, I will burn your cloud away
    I'll find a way Writer/s: MYLES R KENNEDY, SAUL HUDSON
