"Sun Child" as written by and Nicholls....
Sun child
You're a sun child
Awoken by the spirit of the day
Will I grow wild
Speaking so mild
Forgot about the engine in the rain

Don't let it bring you down
For us that ain't the way
We'll keep our lives reserved
For those who have to pray
But I can't pray

Sun child
You're a sun child
Awoken by the spirit of the day
Will I grow wild
Speaking so mild
Forgot about the engine in the rain

Don't let it bring you down
For us that ain't the way
We'll keep our lives reserved
For those who have to pray
But I can't pray

    General Commentperhaps these lyrics are about his relationship with nature or the fact that he wants to connect with it but just can't seem to do it, so he's making up excuses to get outside. sun child may be the little bit of himself thats enabaling him to do something about it, like our inner child. How cool!

    General CommentCraig and Patrick in an interview:

    Craig:
    “ This one’s very slow. It’s a ballad really. It’s a country song and a rock song.
    It’s about being positive and I think the music helps it come across that way. It’s got good harmonies in the chorus. The outro kept getting longer and longer but it all really worked well. The outro really came together in the end… at the end. The outro is the end. Do you follow me?”
    Patrick:
    “ My absoloute favourite. The singing on this is very expressive. It means a lot but it never slides into a country n' western parody, which it could have done. Then there is the guitar solo, which is heavy on whammy bar and expressive as fuck.”
