The sun I never had

Written By: Doug Lins

The Sun I never Had

there's a layer of frost on my window
Autumn is fading fast
the sycamore leaves look just like paper bags
blowing across the grass

I had the Midwestern sun all summer
there's so little now it makes me sad
I'm watchin' it rise with tears in my eyes
for the sun I never had

the sun I never had
is waiting somewhere for me
where the balmy breezes blow in from a tropical sea
gettin' through another winter
is almost more than I can stand
it's time I meet the sun I never had

we'll comb the beaches of Costa Rica
see the dolphins swim in Molokai
watch the sunset on Bora Bora
where the water meets the sky

the weather's just fine in this town of mine
for a couple months of every year
I'm goin' off to greet the sun that I seek
someplace far away from here

the sun I never had
is waiting somewhere for me
where the balmy breezes blow in from a tropical sea
gettin' through another winter
is almost more than I can stand
it's time I meet the sun I never had

it won't be long before the ground
is covered up with snow
if I don't make my break right now
I may never

the sun I never had
is waiting somewhere for me
where the balmy breezes blow in from a tropical sea
gettin' through another winter
is almost more than I can stand
it's time I meet the sun I never had
