Havnt came up with a name for this one yet. I will tell you that it is political, but I used an awful lot of symbolism, so I'll let you guys figure it out!

i look up where the sun once was
only to see the moon
it goes from here to there
but we're stuck here unaware

and every now and then
i look for the sun again
but night will always fall
as this darkness covers all

and now we think
this is the end
but we can change
if we amend

the light is there
as it always has been
but we've ignored it
once again

and now we think
this is the end
we could have changed
we did not amend

the light is there
as it always has been
but if we ignore it
we might lose it again

(instrumental)

and if we think
this is the end
then all is lost
we cannot amend

the light was there
as it always had been
but we let it slip away
again...

I saw the sun today
but it wasnt there to stay
no we couldnt get it to stay
we let it slip away


I'll have the mp3 shorly

Ya I like the repeated daybreak imagry, it makes it all come together and have the same feel. Could be a cool song.

Thanks, I'm still working on making the recording. It looks a little repetitive just written down, and I think it sounds better when sung, like most songs (but i cant sing ha ha).

If you didnt say it was politcal i would have never guessed, i would have thought it was about a relationship. Nice symbolism good work, i like it.

Thanks. I worked pretty hard on making it nice and subtle so as to not offend anyone
