El Sol
Mark Lanegan Lyrics


The sun is gone, and that's all I really know
No angels in the air
With hearts as good as gold
The closer you stand to the gates
The more the gates are closed

These darkened days
Make somebody's hunger and thirst
The blessed burns the sun
He's throwin' shadows on the earth
The shadow you find at the gate
And all the gates are closed
Oh yeah

Anytime you find your race is run
Felt much colder standin' in the sun
Waitin' for some warmth and comin' down
Felt much older than I really was
Waitin' for some warmth and comin' down

The sun is gone, yeah that's all I really know
No angels in the air
With hearts as good as gold
The closer you stand to the gates
The more the gates are closed

Anytime you find your race is run
Felt much colder standin' in the sun
Waitin' for some warmth and comin' down
Felt much older than I really was
Waitin' for some warmth and comin' down
Felt much older standin' in the sun'
Waitin' for some warmth and comin' down
Waitin' for some warmth and comin' down

R.I.P. Mark ❤
Another star fade in our sky, so empty and dark
Another star rise in the heaven of music, brighter and brighter
I feel so sad, yet so grateful.

I love you so much... you're always there. (=

Trom Bon

Yeah, he always sounds good when he does it. I was really shocked to realize how wide of a range he has after I found out that was him on "wildflowers". I knew he had a crazy range before that, but it was quite the mindfuck to find out he can get that high.

John Goad

RIP Mark. Waiting for someone to comin down with hearts as good as gold!😮‍💨

Gaius Petronius

This guy's voice is at the level of Brel and Cash.

Casey Boutell

RIP Lanegan. You were my friend in the darkness.

stonethecrow80

this is music...Mark at his best!

ghostwhiskey

I like when he uses his falsetto,its rare that he does it and most people don't know he has that kind of range. he also does it on "wildflowers",its always unexpected since he usually sings barritone

I found Mark Lanegan only a month ago. Heard this song, was instantly hooked, and bought his memoir. Crazy talented and underrated musician and vocalist.

All the love to his close ones.
