lyrics

I built a fake sun for cloudy days. He sits patient with pale blinds drawn all day, just staying cool – like when we were that age. Just like on sunny days. I tied him to the singing radio, said “Play me something I already know, and we’ll chase the wind with three sails in with every kid we know… just like on rainy days.”
