Duncan Sheik In the Absence Of Sun Lyrics

Last updated: 07/06/2008 11:00:00 AM

For all the good you say it does,
It seems no better when you've had your say.
You may believe it's just because
The words get colder when you've gone away.
I thought I understood what I was to you.

I don't want to feel this way, no,
I don't want to say I'm just a friend.
I don't want to wait around here
'Cause you don't want to feel no pain again.
We just lie about it
As we become shadows of ourselves.

Some may fear committed lives.
I sure am one of them without you.
Does it come to you as some surprise
I laid the ground beneath to doubt you?
Was it ever, girl, something you could hold?

I don't want to feel this way, no,
I don't want to say I'm just a friend.
I don't want to wait around here
'Cos you don't want to feel no pain again.
We just lie about it
As we become shadows of ourselves.

I don't want to look away.
I don't want to be the one denied.
It ain't no fault of mine
Someone somewhere told you lies.
We don't talk about it.
We just become shadows of ourselves.

The 1st time i heard this song is when i watch Val Kilmer's "The Saint". Yes indeed, this is one of OST. This lyric, i think it's more like loosing control of our feeling or ourself. There is (almost) no way forgetting someone the once we love (sincerly). The only one way out is, try find someone who is better than the last....


For me it's a great song writing (Music and Lyrics) and beautiful memories (1997)

Dedicated to:
"Dwi Harti Rachmawati" -(The Fallen Angel)



The best lyrics for a song!! | Reviewer: Scorpio Boy | 6/17/2007

All that he says in it, nobody could express in another way. The best way in forgetting someone is forget both selves! But, Who could?

this jeff buckley, nick drake inspired gentleman writes in a way that takes you on a journey. exciting and cranial but still accessable. this song is a perfect example of that writing. enjoy
