Hard Sun

[audio:hard_sun.mp3]

When I walk beside her, I am the better man
When I look to leave her, I always stagger back again
Once I built an ivory tower, so I could worship from above
When I climbed down to be set free, she took me in again

There’s a big… a big, hard sun
Beating on the big people, in the big hard world

When she comes to greet me, she is mercy at my feet
Yeah, when I see her pin her charm, she just throws it back at me
Once I dug an early grave, to find a better land
She just smiled and laughed at me, and took her blues back again

There’s a big… a big hard sun
Beating on the big people, in the big hard world
Aw, there’s a big… a big hard sun
Beating on the big people, in the big hard world

When I go to cross that river, she is comfort by my side
When I try to understand, she just opens up her hands

There’s a big… a big hard sun
Beating on the big people, in the big hard world

Once I stood to lose her, when I saw what I had done
Bowed down and threw away the hours of her garden and her sun
So I tried to warn her, I turned to see her weep
Forty days and forty nights, and it’s still comin’ down on me

There’s a big… a big hard sun
Beating on the big people, in the big hard world
Aw, there’s a big… a big hard sun
Beating on the big people, in the big hard world

{oh there’s a big… a big hard sun…
beating on the big people, in the big hard world} x5
