lyrics

I was thinking about suns.
I was thinking about the sun going down.
Running up to the sun with the sun going down.
Going down to the sun with sun coming up.
I was thinking about our sun.
About sharing our sun going down, coming up.
I was thinking about going down to the sun.
I was thinking about coming up with the sun coming up.
Running down to the sun with sun going down.
I was thinking about more than just our sun.
I thought about going down with more suns coming up.
I thought about suns orbiting suns,
about suns spiralling down and running out.
I thought about typhoons on the sun,
and what that would mean.
Where do we stand with our sun running down,
and where do we share in the sun coming up?
I was thinking about joining the running of the sun.
I was thinking about joining a running club on Sundays.
I was thinking about running in the sun,
running like the sun, going down like the sun,
coming up.

I don’t know who made me or whether I was made,
I don’t know whether I was made in likeness of the sun,
or how they made me look so much like the sun.
I don’t know how people hold onto the sun going down, coming up.
I don’t know how people spiral with the sun, or storm with the sun, have fun in the sun, as they say.
I am running to the fall of the sun.
I am cold with coming down of the sun going up.
I am going down to the shore of the sun.
I’m thinking about how we’re sure of the sun.
I was thinking about suns.
I was thinking about our sharing in the sun.
I was thinking of our place going down.
I was thinking of going down to the sun.
I was thinking of going down with the sun.
I was thinking of our only sun.
Our only sun.
Our final sun, going down.
