Sunburn Lyrics

You're not her
Though I try to see you differently
I tow the line
You see I'm searching for what used to be, mine
I saw your eyes
And I saw Alice staring back at me
So I will try to find another one
Who suited me as well as her

I've moved far away from you
And I want to see you here beside me, dear
But things aren't clear
When we never even tried
We never even talked
We never even thought in the long run
Whenever it was painful
Whenever I was away
I'd miss you
I miss you

She was mine
I was hers
And all that's in between
If she would cry
I would shelter her
And keep her from the darkness that will be

If I moved far away from you
And I want to see you here beside me, dear

But things aren't clear
We never even tried
We never even talked
We never even thought in the long run
Whenever it was painful
Whenever I was away
I'd miss you
And I miss you

Don't drop me in
It's not my turn
If you cut deep
Then I might learn
That you scarred and left me
Like a sunburn

Don't drop me in
It's not my turn
If you cut deep
Then I might learn
That you scar and leave me
Like a sunburn

We never even tried
We never even talked
We never even thought in the long run
Whenever it was painful
Whenever I was away
I'd miss you
And I miss you

The perfect song to listen to after last nights break up :( he never even tried. And now he lives 6,000 miles away. Can't believe how spot on this song is...

This song makes me so incredibly sad. Despite this bump on our journey, I believe in my heart that we are destined to be together. I love you JB...I always have and I always will. Remember baby, I'm always with you...

I love everything eds ever written, I'm in the same position and my ex is called Alice. This song gets me everytime.

For me, this song is all about the struggles he's having with old love vs new love. The new love hasn't quite taken off yet and he wants it to take off but certain reminders of the old love keep pulling him a few steps back when he doesn't want that. It's a power struggle. Beautiful song!!!

This song makes me go into hysterics. I'm with a guy right now who loves me and I love him back, but sometimes I just sit here and miss my first love who didn't want to try to fix it. This song

I love the repetition of verses with the use of reversals from past to present tense; it give the song an even deeper feeling of an inescapable longing for someone despite previous ruin. Breathtaking!
