Lyrics
If you've ever really seen the sun rise
You will see how many times it tries
If you've ever really seen the sun set
You will see how long it takes to die.

You can see the butterfly has landed
Landed on your prison plates, you’re out
You can feel its trouble making a teardrop
You will see how long it takes to fly

You can see the universe beginning
Making all the sun and the sky
You can see the universe is ending
Making love darker than the night
