Stare At The Sun

In the back of the of taxi,
You turned off the TV, and read me a book on your phone
Here's the return of your skeleton key,
Oh baby the places we've gone

If that was goodbye then I must be high
You know I'll be seeing you soon
If that was goodbye and the snow in July
As it hailed in the middle of June

Give me your toothpaste, give me your ointment,
Give me your body and then
Keep this in amber, keep our appointment,
Remember the things that we sang

If that was goodbye then I must be high
You must be the sugar I need
If that was goodbye then I am a fly
And the future is guaranteed

'Cause when I'm with you everything's treasure
I forget what it's like to be gone
I'm far from the town in the suburbs of your pleasure
I've been in exile so long.
I try not to stare at the sun,
No, I try not to stare at the sun.
I try not to stare at the sun.

Cooperative coffee and synchronized showers,
I try not to look at the clock.
Goodbye to your castle, wave from the tower,
And drop me a line from the dock.

If that was good by then you must be high
And maybe I'm releasing the thread
If that was goodbye then the sea has run dry
So I fill it with tears instead

'Cause when I'm with you everything's treasure
I forget what it's like to be gone
I'm far from the town in the suburbs of your pleasure
I've been in exile so long.
I try not to stare at the sun,
I try not to stare at the sun.
I try not to stare at the sun.

'Cause when I'm with you everything's treasure
I forget what it's like to be gone
I'm far from the town in the suburbs of your pleasure
I've been in exile so long.
I try not to stare at the sun,
I try not to stare at the sun.
I try not to stare at the sun.
