As the sun hangs~
like a jewel in the sky~
I hang on your every word~
whether it be the truth or a lie.

And as the sun is~
bright, blazing, and fiery~
so my love is for you~
burning hot inside of me.

So my days are measured~
from sunrise to sunset~
and I live each one~
with the deepest of regret.

And I wonder how the sun~
can still be shining~
while my heart is dark~
in all of its pining.

For now my world~
is in a dark eclipse~
since the words good bye~
passed through your lips.
