Sunny Boy
M83 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

To which system does she belong?
Is she the girl called sunny boy?

Have you ever believed in?
I am star-struck
Cosmic adrenaline
She's young and fierce
Have you ever kissed?
And I like her
Maybe I love her

Is that the same moon we love?
Why does this girl burn?
So long ago when we were born
A timeless sun, sun
Sun, love

Have you ever believed in?
I've been star-struck
Cosmic adrenaline
She's young and fierce
Have you ever danced?
And I love her
With a tear falling

Have you ever done it?
Danger star-struck
Cosmic adrenaline
Such a radiant queen
Have you ever danced?
Hope she hits me
With a tear falling
Oh, I love her

Can we just make it last?




Can we just make it last?
Can we just make it last?

Definitely the kind of music you'd play on the road with the windows down and wind rushing in.

Leave it to M83 to evolve with each album but still sound like themselves. 😊

making music like this is like having a superpower

This is so beautiful that I think we have a new contender for the background music for the next 20 films' "end credits" ... and about 8,000 upcoming car commercials.

Dave Beverley

Been my favourite band since 2003. This is the best album as a whole that you've put out since 2011. So many great tracks on this album. It's different, yet still familiar. Looking forward to seeing you at the Roundhouse in summer.

flying TIM-E

It's hard to describe, but this masterpiece brings almost instantly happiness and peace of mind as the overall theme changes at 1:30. Before that, the pretty dark sounds remind me of hard times and ugly situations (which can be symbolized as thunderstorms and rainy clouds), but after this mentioned change the song reminds me of good and happy times, in which I could live without worries and just enjoy life (can be symbolized as a sudden stop of raining, sudden shining sun - bringing warmness and bright light).
This song can definitely keep up with other top songs composed by M83, for instance "we own the sky" or "wait".
Speaking of wait, I can't wait to listen to this song in the future and rewind my time in high school with all the different emotions, which are described by this song - thanks M83!
