Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Sun
Take some time, get away
Sun
Suicide is a shame
Sun
Soon, you'll find your own way
Sun
Hope has come, you are safe
And it makes me cry
Because I'm on my way
On my way
On my way
Hey, it's the sun, and it makes me shine
Hey, it's the sun, and it makes me shine
Hey, it's the sun, and it makes me shine
Hey, now, it's the sun, and it makes me shine

Sun
Soon, you'll be okay
Sun
Soon, you'll be okay
And it makes me smile
Because I'm on my way

Hey, it's the sun, and it makes me shine
Hey, it's the sun, and it makes me shine
Hey, now, it's the sun, and it makes me smile all around
Hey, now, it's the sun, and it makes me smile all around
All around

(Ba dada ba ba)

Hey, now it's the sun, and it makes me smile
All around
Hey, now it's the sun, and it makes me smile
All around, all around





(Ba dada ba ba)

@breandadavis3168

Oh yeah, I immediately thought of Here comes the sun and how this is probably heavily influenced by The Beatles

@amberunthank7209

Saw this band at Bonaroo and realized I was obviously not high enough to witness them live. They are either super high on the happiest drug ever made or have found Jesus and it makes them super happy. They were ridiculously happy-go-lucky.
