I don’t know why this song always grabs me and won’t let me go, but sometimes I have to switch my iPod from “shuffle” to “repeat-one” and listen to a song over and over and over….

Matthew Sweet “Looking for the Sun”

Do you really want to
Run away with me?
Would you really like to
Run away with me?
I can feel very clearly
But no longer see

For oh, looking at the sun
Waiting for you to appear
Watched you getting nearer
Like I knew it in my heart
The damage was already done
Looking at the sun
Burned my eyes out
And I’m blind now

I was looking for somebody
That you couldn’t be
I was looking for somebody
That you will never be
I was so sure that there was
Nothing wrong with me

But oh, looking at the sun
Waiting for you to appear
Watched you getting nearer
Like I knew it in my heart
The damage was already done
Looking at the sun
Burned my eyes out
And I’m blind now…I’m blind

Do you really want to
Run away with me?
I can feel very clearly
But no longer

Oh, looking at the sun
Waiting for you to appear
Watched you getting nearer
Like I knew it was in my heart
The damage was already done
Looking at the sun
Burned my eyes out
Now I’m blind


Looking at the sun
Waiting for you to appear
Watched you getting nearer
Like I knew it in my heart
The damage was already done
Looking at the sun
Burned my eyes out
And I’m blind now
Yeah I’m blind now
