Staring at the Sun

©2007 M. Vallez

Staring at the Sun Verse 1: No use staring at the sun, the question won’t be undone and even if the riddle is your vision will be gone. Like a sunspot in your mind, the chaos won’t be defined, you sit in thought about the evening loss and how nothing can be done. Pre-Chorus: Make me question, did I lead a good life, makes me question, did I treat people right

Verse 2: Like a cancer of the soul, the December grip takes hold and it drapes the rooms with its early moons and keeps me in my home. And I don’t mean to get so down, but the endless nights make ground, and they flank the view and lead me to the questions that you found. Pre-Chorus: Makes me question an honest mans work, makes me question about anythings worth. Chorus: And In your innocence you spoke and it seemed to breath much hope, but I don’t know, how do you know if anything really matters.

Verse 3: And I was staring at the dirt, comparing my self worth, this endless stone verse broken bone never knows its birth. Like a pebble on the beach, the elements quite discrete, you divide the grain but can’t sustain the questions that you seek. Pre-Chorus Makes me question the souls that search, makes me question the heavens worth. Chorus: In your ignorance you spoke and it seemed to suggest hope, but I don’t know, how do you know if anything really matters.

Verse 4: I was pondering our loss, shared among us all, the lives we spend quite depend on what you think of fall. And if you pray to god or not, your life will be forgot, my honesty it clings to me and brings me to this thought. Pre-Chorus: Makes me question the value of our lives, makes me mention the shadows in our minds. Chorus: Those syllables you speak, they makes my knees go weak, but I don’t know how can anyone be certain. Those images you invoke, they seem to suggest hope, but I don’t know, how can anyone ever be certain.

Never took the Time

Verse 1: I just never took the time though I know I always should now your gone like the last drink of wine If i had one chance with you I would dash it into two upon the cliffs that we used to view

Chorus 1: I know that you were always on my side, mountains tumble never took the time

Verse 2 If I drift a little more down the river to the shore i'm sure I'll miss what was yours If I piss away my life does it matter what is right worse than this is the life that i miss

Chorus 2: I know that you were always on my side, bluebirds singing never took the time

Verse 3: I was thinking to myself that there must be something else more to this than the wealth that I wish

Chorus 3: I know that you were always on my side, mountains tumble never took the time

Verse 4: If I dig a little more the scabs reddens to ore like the hearts of the ones you adore Chorus 4: I know that you were always on my side, mountains tumble never took the time
