Once upon a time
I was on a mind to lay your burden down
And leave you where you stood
You believed i could
You'd seen it done before
I could read your thoughts
And tell you what you saw
And never say a word
But now that is gone
All worth and done
And never to return

I can tell you why
People die alone
I can tell you why
The shadow on the sun

Staring at the loss
Looking for the cause
And never really sure
Nothing but a hole
To live without a soul
And nothing to be learned

I can tell you why
People go insane
I can show you how
You could do the same
I can tell you why
The end will never come
I can tell you why
The shadow on the sun

Shapes of every size
Move behind my eyes
Doors inside my head
Bolted from within
Every drop of flame
Lights a candle in
Memory of the one
Who lived inside my skin

I can tell you why
People go insane
I can show you how
You could do the same
I can tell you why
The end will never come
I can tell you why
The shadow of the sun

Shadow of the sun
Shadow of the sun
Shadow of the sun
Shadow of the sun
Shadow of the sun
Shadow of the sun
Shadow of the sun
Sun
Sun
