Behind the Sun
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


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

Behind the sun, wow

One day while bathin' in the sea
My talkin' 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, 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, yeah, behind the sun
Behind the sun
An island flyin' through the sky
One day your son might ask you why
And if your 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, 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

I can not believe that this incredible song only has 5000 views and 3 comments is totally unlikely

Someone posted the video and it ranks higher than the official audio. most people are going to click the video...

One day at work I said to a co-worker who I knew was a child of the 90s and loved dolphins, "I want to play your new favorite song for you." She laughed and I played this song. She loved it and wanted to know why she'd never heard it before. "Good question." I replied.

JOAQUIM CRAVEIRO

That is a so calming chilling song ... makes feel so happy , floating in a blue sky ...

Didn't even become a hit until like 5 or 6 years after it was released.
