Shooting Sun LyricsEdit

We've been waiting inside our fears

Eyes that scorn you imprison you with tears

Now awoken rise up your new age schemes

Just like the shooting sun mirrors your golden dreams


And we'll wait for you 'til dawn - ring it in

To stare back at the eyes that scorn - ring it in


We've been sinking with every step they spurn

Now we're thinking it's time for them to burn

Crept up slowly with a pocket full of beams

Softly spoken 'Take these eyes and see'


And we'll curse the years of stone - it's ringing in

We'll laugh in the eyes that scorn


We'll light them one by one touched

by the shooting sun

Flames run in golden streams echoing golden dreams

We'll kiss them one by one just like the shooting sun


We'll burst the years of stone,

We'll laugh in the eyes that scorn - ring it in


We'll burst the years of stone

We'll laugh in the eyes that scorn - ring it in


We'll light them one by one touched

by the shooting sun

We'll kiss them one by one like my shooting sun

My shooting sun
