lyrics

The man underneath the crowded bridge
The single mother with her crying kids
The struggling artist with her makeshift tools
The poor musician in his lonely room
Sometimes they’ve got to break the rules
They do what they can to make their dues

Often dream of fabled roads
That will finally lead them home
Till they find there’s one way up
A path that’s blocked, nowhere to run
So instead, they turn and head the other way
Stuck in some dead stop traffic, rather go back to where they came

At the bottom of the mountain there is warmth and life
But at the top, just feel estranged and cold, far out of sight

Sunlight, it comes and goes
Moon takes what’s left so it can glow
Sunlight, it comes and goes
Sunlight, it comes and goes

Sometimes I wonder
If dying empty handed is better
To leave this world with nothing more
Than you had when you came in the door
Cause then, there’s nothing they can take away
No legacy to corrupt, no detriment to your name

Sunlight, it comes and goes
Moon takes what’s left so it can glow
Sunlight, it comes and goes
Sunlight, it comes and goes
