Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Light and day is more than you'll say

Because all
My feelings are more
Than i can let by
Or not
More than you've got
Just follow the day

Follow the day and reach for the sun!

You don't see me flyin to the red
One more you're done
Just follow the seasons and find the time
Reach for the bright side
You don't see me flyin to the red
One more you're nuts
Just follow the day
Follow the day and reach for the sun

Just follow the day
Follow the day and reach for the sun!

You don't see me flyin to the red
One more you're nuts
Just follow the seasons and find the time
Reach for the bright side
You don't see me flyin to the red
One more you're nuts
Just follow the day
Follow the day and reach for the sun!

Just follow the day
Follow the day and reach for the sun!





Just follow the day
Follow the day and reach for the sun!

The lyrics start with the line "Light and day is more than you'll say," suggesting that there is more to life and our experiences than we can express or understand. The second line, "Because all my feelings are more than I can let by," acknowledges that we have emotions and aspirations that may be suppressed or difficult to articulate. The next line, "Or not, more than you've got," suggests that some people may not have the same level of ambition or optimism as others.


The chorus continues with the invitation to "Follow the day and reach for the sun," urging listeners to stay focused on the present and pursue their goals. The line "You don't see me flying to the red" may refer to the idea of being undeterred by obstacles or setbacks, as though the singer is saying that they won't give up even if they fail once (the red being a metaphor for failure). The chorus repeats several times, with variations on the final line "Just follow the day and reach for the sun," emphasizing the importance of perseverance and hopefulness.

It’s been quite a few years since I saw them live. The last time was at a very small venue. It was a basement bar under a restaurant in St. Louis. That might it snowed several inches and the sold out show only had about 30 people show up. My wife and I were a part of something great that night. Despite the low turn out they played for hours and sat around with us at tables and played and included us all. It was a night I will never forget.

I last saw them at their anniversary show in Dallas like 5 years ago, SUCH a freaking blast. Happiest vibes on the planet were in that room. And most of us were blazed lmao.

I love this band playing in Scrubs :) It was the one of the best episodes!

@teizle1

When I first saw these guys it was on scrubs, and I thought it was a joke band, I was cracking up. Then I googled them and found out that this was actually a group.
