"Half Year Sun" as written by and Daniel John/von Bohlen Didier....
At the top of the world
There is a half-year sun
The water's all froze
And one thousand men old
On the side of the hill
There are no wanting eyes
But you're a spectacle a spinning doll
Now the hour is fading but ours is staying
Its all syncopated to your heart's hard heartbeat time
You may never miss a sign

At the base of your skull
I've got a place there still
All my clothes spread out
In a permanent row

Now the hour is fading but ours is staying
Its all syncopated to your hearts hard heartbeat time
We will never not get together
We will never not get too old
The water's all frozen one

And I've got a place there still
And we will not get too old

    General CommentNow this is a great song. As much as I like Davey to sing me something that I know, this is a new favorite (newer). They really did an excellent job in reforming their sound while holding true to their audience.

    General CommentThe one thing I would suggest is I think Davey sings "...to your heart's heart heartbeat time" Your heart's heart is a much more poetic expression than heart, heart, heartbeat

    General CommentSorry one more comment: a couple times in the end he says "we will never NOT get together" at least in the third and sixth refrain in the end
