Lyrics
the sun is shining brighter
the time has finally come
it seems insane for me to go on
I've only just begun
the image flicker faster
the image rip and bend
and then I looked up at the sky
I knew this was the end

but when that song begins to play
I just can't bear to look away
I hear it now
so tell me what it feels like
you tell me dearest one
she turns around and takes her shades off
and says

it's like staring at the sun
well an accident in progress
the smell of burning hair
I told her twice to take it easy
but she just didn't care

but when that song begins to play
I just can't bear to look away
I hear it now

so tell me what it feels like
you tell me dearest one
she turns around and takes her shades off
and says
it's like staring at the sun

but when that song begins to play
I just can't bear to look away
don't you feel it now
so tell me what it feels like
you tell me dearest one
she turns around and takes her shades off
and says

it's like staring at the sun
like staring at the sun
like staring at the sun
