"Southern Sun" as written by and Jamie Muhoberac Carmen T. Rizzo Jnr....
Piece by piece
I release
Once was mine
Now undone
Turned blue
Like New Orleans
And went down like
A southern sun

I still feel you
Beneath my skin
I am tempted
To throw my senses in

Cause it's easier to fly
Than to face another day
In Southern Sun
And your love is all around

Piece by piece
I release
Once was mine
Now undone
Turned blue like New Orleans
And went down like
A southern sun

I still feel you
Beneath my skin
I am tempted
To throw my senses in

Cause it's easier to fly
Than to face another day
In Southern Sun
And your love is all around
And in the air to set me free

Set me free

You last like a sun
I'm deflated
I am pieces on the wind
Unrelated

I still feel you
Beneath my skin
I am tempted
To throw my senses in

Cause it's easier to fly
Than to face another day
In southern sun
And your love is all around
In the air to set me free

Cause it's easier to fly
And in the air to set me free

    My InterpretationThis song is about the liberation a girl feels during sex and surrendering her senses to passionate love.
    it's easier to share that intimacy with someone than to face another night alone, watching the sunrise.

    General CommentThis song and music is from another dimension. Extremely poignant, sad, depressing, and tear-jerking!

    Carla Werner sings like as though she is Chinese or something because this feels like a traditional chinese song with chinese music to be honest.

    General CommentOakenfold has said this song was composed about/in New Orleans -- sad, depressing lyrics with an uplifting chorus. I like the chorus sung in the Tiesto remix which show the song's vocal meaning: lost love.

    'cause it's easier to drown than to find somewhere I feel sincerity

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who commits suicide because the guy she loved broke her heart.

    I think by flying she means to be free from his love and her depressing life.

    General CommentThe DJ Tiesto lyrics read this:

    'Cause it's easier to have dreamt
    Than to find somewhere I feel sincerity
    And our truth comes back around
    In the air, tonight for me, tonight for me

    Though I initially thought it was sung as "..easier to drown" too.

    Really well mixing of mood with lyrics. Good song. There's also a radio cut version that I've heard, but never got hold of.

    General Commentabsolute wonderful, yes the song is really about the music, not the lyrics. but its not often you find a dance record with such mystical lyrics too, the 'southern sun' is just a metaphor for where you had the time of your life....

    General CommentIt's hard to make sense of. It sounds like the singer (Carla Werner, btw -- shame she doesn't generally receive credit) is talking about dissolving, but there's someone whose love is something solid, keeping her together. Or perhaps it is not solid but constant, something that will allow her to continue to exist once everything else falls away.
