lyrics

The Sun & The Clouds

a broken heart and the lure of drugs
praying hands and the lord above
beat your head against the wall
‘til the voices quiet

somewhere something fell apart
somewhere in a life too smart
running colors in a black and white silent movie

watch the darkness dawn your face
something no drug can erase
it's a sadness that goes deeper than the two of us

‘cause you bring the clouds underneath the sun
you bring the clouds underneath the sun
and you got the four chords
that make everything seem beautiful

Maker's Mark and old Pete Rose
who knows just where this will go?
we'll talk about our dads ‘til the bottle's empty

if I could take these aches from you
would I even know what to do?
can the pain go somewhere and leave the ground beneath the two of us?

watch the darkness dawn your face
something no drug can erase
it's a sadness that goes deeper than the two of us

‘cause you bring the clouds underneath the sun
you bring the clouds underneath the sun
and you got the four chords that make everything seem beautiful

it's in the moment, it’s in the style
you don't have to fall down loud
it's in the way of seeing everything that's possible

nothing is easy, nothing just comes around

come on, let’s go out in the sun
