Sun

Sunshine rise in the West Virginia skies, yeah
And I made this with my own two hands
There’s gold in them thare hills, it’s cold in them thare hills
I’ve walked every road now they call me a man

The autumn and the winter knocked a small familiar splinter loose
And sometimes I feel incomplete
She’s not the only one, I keep my eyes fixed on the Sun
’Cause I can’t stand to see her when she’s at my feet

Think of days gone by, of coffee and of friends
Dream of future days when we will meet again
Deep dark conversations, stories that we’ll tell
’Cause when it gets dark — it looks like anywhere else

Sun burns bright in my evergreen eyes
And I close them shut to review my choice
One day when I’m able, there’s a number on the table
And I’ll call her up, hear her voice

In-jokes, old lines, bad puns, cheap wine
Recollection comforts me on nights like this
Calloused hands, smooth flesh, deep dark secret
Tremble with the memory of a long-lost kiss

Train of thought derailed ’cause I kept losin’ track
Hit the highway and I find myself lookin’ back
Here before the Sun I stand to reclaim myself
’Cause when it gets dark — I look like anyone else

Sunshine sets on a pack of cigarettes
And I smoke one slow as the Sun goes down
I’m gonna take some time, I’m gonna figure out what’s mine
And it’s not as simple as it sounds

Kneel down, give thanks, go West, rob banks
Gonna make my mark before I’m done
The future lies with her legs spread wide
And I’m gonna write my name in Sun

Think of days gone by, of coffee and of friends
Dream of future days when we will meet again
Deep dark conversations, stories that we’ll tell
’Cause when it gets dark —
