The Dangerous Summer Reach for the Sun LyricsEdited formatting.
I wrote a song about war, the kind that lives in your head.
I found a place I can sit, a place where everyday light hits.
Like the palm of your hand when you're reaching for something that's balled up in the sky.
That's the way I like to see myself; reaching for just one star at a time.
I heard what was a song inside the earth. I put my ear to the ground and I sang with every word.
See, I got lost in the sound.
It was the moment I felt sick, just when I needed it most.
There is not much to explain, except I found myself blinded by every bit of light.
I felt so safe inside the sight of the sun.
I really think I'm home now, I really think that.
I heard what was a song inside the earth.
I put my ear to the ground and I sang with every word.
I felt a wave so strong, I fell right in it.
It hit so hard and it took my spirit.
Know that I belong to you until I die.
I remember giving this a try
I screamed so loud, 'cause that's exactly how I felt.
It broke me out, and I gave up all my plans. I set them down, 'cause I really need to see the sun again.
Don't worry, 'cause I'll be fine.
