Sunrise, Sunset Lyrics

Bright Eyes – Sunrise, Sunset Lyrics

from album: Fevers & Mirrors (2000)
Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset
Swiftly go the days
Sunrise, sunset, you wake up then you undress
It always is the same
The sunrise and a sun sets
You are lying while you confess
The sunrise and the sun sets
Keep trying to explain
What you have been trying to retain
You realize and then you forget
That get stuck inside of your head
But everybody knows it's all about the things
Like the songs your roommate sings
Or a vision of her body as she stretches out on your bed
She raises her hands in the air
Asks you "When was the last time you looked in the mirror?
The sunrise, the sunset, you're hopeful and then you regret
Cause you've changed, yeah, you've changed"
With a sunrise and sunset, there's a change of heart or address
The circle never breaks
Is there nothing that remains?
For a sunrise or a sunset, you're manic or you're depressed
Will you ever feel ok?
For a sunrise or a sunset, your lover is an actress
Did you really think she'd stay?
Towards a sunrise or a sunset, a scribble or a sonnet
For a sunrise or a sunset, you're either coming or you just left
But you're always on the way
To the sunrise or the sunset, the master and his servant
They are really just the same
Have exactly the same fate
It's a sunrise and a sunset, from a cradle to a casket
There is no way to escape
The sunrise or the sunset, hold your sadness like a puppet
But everything you do is leading to the point
Keep putting on the play
Where you just won't know what to do
There is someone there who will be laughing louder than you
And the moment that you're laughing
So it's true, the trick is complete
You've become everything you said you never would be
You're a fool, you're a fool
Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset
The sunrise and the sun sets
Sunrise, sunset, the sunrise, the sun sets
The sunrise, the sun sets
Put the cassette in the tape
Sunrise, sunset, go home to your apartment
Deck and let that fever play
Sunrise, sunset, where are you, Arienette?
Where are you, Arienette
