Lyrics

Another day of cloudy skies 
Feeling low and I don't know why
Guess it shouldn't be news to me now
It's been this way for centuries but I'm holding out 
I heard from legends and crystal balls 
The Sun gave warmth to the great and small 
I saw the smile good old Ray put on their face 
It ain't too much to want gentle grace 
This pessimism brings my brain a schism 
Splitting up my mind
But I know before too soon I'll find
Footsteps on my porch of ultraviolet kind
When the sun comes knocking on my door
And after I pick my jaw off the floor
I'll say "come in stranger, it's been too long a while"
He'll hang up his hat with a radiant smile
I'll ask where he's been for all of these years
We'll talk about his travels over two or three beers
I'll hang on every word, looking forward to brighter days
When the sun comes back to stay
Maybe he just read the sign wrong
Or fell asleep waiting on his train
And the galaxy express 
takes a century no less
To come back round our way again 
Everyone says you're gone but I know you're only late
I'll leave the lights on if you reciprocate
Just promise you're back and we won't get burned
You'll be the prodigal sun as far as I'm concerned
When the sun comes knocking on my door 
And after I pick my jaw off the floor 
I'll say "come in stranger, it's been too long a while"
He'll hang up his hat with a radiant smile
I'll ask where he's been for all of these years
We'll talk about his travels over two or three beers
I'll hang on every word, looking forward to brighter days
When the sun comes back to stay
Stay
Come on back baby. We miss you.
