Bright Eyes Sunrise, Sunset Lyrics

Last updated: 04/26/2011 11:00:00 AM

Sunrise, sunset.
Sunrise, sunset.
Swiftly go the days.
Sunrise, sunset.
You wake up, then you undress.
It always is the same.
The sunrise and the sunsets.
You are lying while you confess, keep trying to explain.
The sunrise and the sunsets
You realize then you forget what you've been trying to retain.
But everybody knows that it is all about the things
That get stuck inside of your head,
Like the songs your roommate sings
Or a vision of her body as she stretches out on your bed.
She raised her hands in the air, asked you,
When was the last time you looked in the mirror?
Cause you've changed.
Yeah, you've changed.
Sunrises, sunsets.
You're hopeful then you regret.
The circle never breaks.
With a sunrise and a sunset there's a change of heart or address.
Is there nothing that remains?
For a sunrise or a sunset.
You're manic or you're depressed.
Will you ever feel ok?
For a sunrise or a sunset, your lover is an actress.
Did you really think she'd stay?
For a sunrise or a sunset.
You're either coming or you just left but you're always on the way.
Towards a sunrise or a sunset, a scribble or a sonnet.
They are really just the same.
To the sunrise and the sunset.
The master and his servant have exactly the same fate.
It's a sunrise and a sunset.
From a cradle to a casket.
There is no way to escape.
The sunrise and the sunset.
Hold your sadness like a puppet, keep putting on the play.
But everything you do is leading to the point
Where you just won't know what to do.
And at that moment you may laugh
But there is someone there who will be laughing louder than you.
So it's true, the trick is complete.
Become everything you said you never would be.
You're a fool! You're a fool!
Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset.
Sunrise and the sunsets.
Sunrise, sunset, sunrises, sunsets.
Sunrise and the sunsets.
Sunrise, sunset.
Go home to your apartment
And put the cassette in the tape deck and let that fever play.
Sunrise, sunset.
Where are you Arienette?
Where are you Arienette?

There is something so incredibly beautiful about this and all of Bright Eyes' music. It's is hard to put into words, it's just wonderful...i feel bad for people who only know the shallow meaningless "music" crap on the radio...it's sad to know that they don't have this in their life.



insane...i swear | Reviewer: Arienette | 4/12/11

This song seriously touches me deeply. Its so beautiful and true. I mean, its obviously about beginnings and endings, but at the same time so much more. I wish more people knew about this kind of music. Imagine society then!



radiant. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/26/10

All of Conor Oberst's work is so profound. When he SCREAMS at you in the song, it's wonderful. He writes about the truth, but he strings the words together in such a beautiful and honest way. He leads us back where we have already been through his music. Depression, hatred, boredom, 'love', hate.



Conor is amazing.Everybody know that. | Reviewer: Don`t act like you are super fish | 11/7/10

Relation | Reviewer: Conrad | 9/14/07

Sunrise, Sunset the story of a life you regret because you always want to stay, and you keep doing the same things and the things you do are driving you mad! You feel like you're wasting time swimming in circles, all the things you know are true, Face them it's time for a change. I guess you'll always be lost.

awsome | Reviewer: chris | 8/20/07

i simply love this song. It really gets to me. And conor's voice is just beyond words. Its truly amazing how it manages to get to people, even if he doesnt have the most melodic voice. Conor's writing its also something that cant be described.
To the sunrise and the sunset.
The master and his servant have exactly the same fate.
It’s a sunrise and a sunset.
From a cradle to a casket.
There’s no way to escape.
The sunrise and the sunset.
Hold your sadness like a puppet, keep putting on the play.
But everything you do is leading to the point
where you just won’t know what to do.
And at that moment you may laugh
but there is someone there who will be laughing louder than you.
So it’s true, the trick is complete.
become everything you said that you never would be.
You’re a fool! You’re a fool!
That part is... argh i cant describe it. How he says you're a fool, amazing. Dark but meaningful



Amazing | Reviewer: Kaitlyn|Calamity | 8/18/07

This song is utterly amazing. It has so much meaning and it speaks to me. Everything in the song is the truth. We have no way to escape the vicious cycle of a life that means nothing. We all have the same fate. Nothing makes us better than each other. We all mean absolutly nothing.



&love; | Reviewer: Jess | 5/3/07
