when the sun is shining (why aren’t you)

come and sit with me on the beach
we’re free to do what we please
can’t you see, it’s not hard to be here
roaming around, look what we’ve found
coming down, hitting the ground

you said I don’t bother talking frankly
and you can’t say that you miss me
can’t we deal with this like grown-ups do?
spinning wild, I’m perceiving
running far, to where are we leaving?

when the sun is shining why aren’t you
while the sky’s dazzling so blue
in your eyes…don’t know why
in your eyes…tell me why

yield the anger and displaced quotes
I can’t argue about what’s not the cause
can’t this be simply about you and me?
driving long, destination unknown
blacking out, because they say life must be so

Chris put it well when he asked:
“do you like waiting through all your bad, bad days”
“just to end them with someone you care about?”
I’ll silently approve because
that “someone” should be you

when the sun is shining why aren’t you
while the sky’s dazzling so blue
in your eyes…don’t know why
in your eyes…tell me why

when the sun is shining why aren’t you
while the sky’s dazzling so blue
in your eyes…don’t know why
in your eyes…
when the sun is shining why aren’t you
while the sky’s dazzling so blue
in your eyes…don’t know why
in your eyes…tell me why
