"Sunlight Makes me Paranoid" as written by and Diego Juan Garcia....
The sunlight's making me feel paranoid
I look outside and see the world at war
The people walk to work like they're alone
I sit in silence staring at the phone

And it helps me breathe, And it helps me see

I cover up my eyes to block the light
I cover up my eyes and try to fight, the fall

And it helps, When I come down, And it helps

The sunlight's making me feel paranoid
I look outside and see the world at war
The people laugh and play like they're alone
They're watching us while we sleep in our homes
I never, I never meant to shut you out
All I know and all I need is you
I never, I never meant to cause alarm
All I know and all I need and all I got is gonna bleed

It helps, when I come down, It helps, when I come down

It helps me breathe, When I come down
Annie
The smell of the ocean on her skin
The rags of her dress blowing in the wind
A chorus of angels on the boardwalk
They know what you did in the dark

Chorus

I never meant to hurt you Annie
Leave you standing with the gun
Come and play with me little Annie
Lose yourself, lose yourself

I lay her back on the cold sand
And wipe the blood from her hand
I fix her hair and kiss her chest
The secrets die in her breathe

Chorus

I never meant to hurt you Annie
Leave you standing with the gun
Come and play with me little Annie
Lose yourself, lose yourself

Oh no, her hands are cold
Oh no, I played with her soul
All night again
I'm alone LOVE
I want the girl all dressed in white
She turns and says hello
She changes colors like a bird
I grab her wings and fly away
She takes me high and leaves me there
I never want that down

Chorus

Love, It's a beautiful place, It's a beautiful taste
Where I am now, where I am now, And I belong

The gentle high is all to blame
I cried for seven days
I feel myself losing control
To all the voices in my soul
There is the girl in white again
I need the sugar from her hand

Chorus

Love, It's a beautiful place, It's a beautiful taste
Where I am now, where I am now, And I belong

And it's such a wonderful way, We're making love right now
And it's such a wonderful way, you feel me up inside

Chorus

Love, It's a beautiful place, It's a beautiful taste
Where I am now, where I am now, And I belong ESTER
Ester why do you look all blue
What did I say to you to make you feel all blue
Ester when you walk in the room
Everybody turns to look at you

Chorus

And that night when I called you
I was being young
And the way I tried to win you
I was being young, I was being young

Ester why can't you talk to me
Why can't you look at me
Why can't sit with me
Ester with your lips all full
With your heart all full, is there room for two

Chorus

And that night when I called you
I was being young
And the way I tried to win you
I was being young, I was being young

    General Commentthis song is awesome, has a great beat. i think its about how he is ashamed sort of at the world, and the condition it is in right now. but yet there is something or soemone who just makes it so great. this might be just sort of my view on the world though.
    jsut a though

    General CommentI think he's talking about the war...but maybe isolation in general...he shut himself out from the world and the person he loves...and it took him a while to realize that he really needed that person...

    General Commentthis is an awesome song. i think is one of my favourites ever. is about someone who doesn't like people that much he likes to be in his house but there's a girl who makes him feel good

    General Commenti liked your comments about this song and i agree that this song is GREAT, pretty lyrics (simply and yet pretty!), good beat, great music.
    Anyway, I think this song is about someone who is afraid of the world...
    "The sunlights making me feel paranoid
    I look outside and see the world at war
    The people laugh and play like they're alone
    They're watching us while we sleep in our home"
    he doesn't understand it so he isolates himself and shuts himself away but while doing so he also shuts out the one person he cares about
    Also, he keeps himself in his own little world (away from society) but he needs that girl he shut out so without her HIS own world is incomplete.

    ...yeah cute song =)

    General Commentoh yes i forgot to mention (although i did imply it) he's sort of an outcast (at least in the song)
    he doesn't fit in society. at least in the sense that he doesn't feel he belongs in that type of society. ...this sort of reminds me of The Catcher In The Rye...

    General CommentWhats up with the world!? that's what diego is saying. The first 4 lines set the stage, then its about how to shout out and think positive about it.

    "I cover up my eyes and block the light" (look away from the crap)
    "I cover up my eyes and try not to fight the fall" (cover up and avoid the negativity)

    "The people laugh and play like they're alone" (everyone that succumbs to the boring lifestyle they follow everyday, laugh at us and try to sway us to join in)
    "They're watching us while we sleep in our home" (they watch us as we enjoy ourselves while we're in our nirvana)

    "all I need is you...no I never meant to cause alarm...and all I've got is gonna bleed" (is a verse to show your dedication to your passion)

    "come down...helps me breathe" (just bursting out and singing about your fidelity, just gives such a sigh of relief to know thats who you are, in a positive)

    well. that's my take on it^^. i love to lite a cigarette staring at the stars with this tune on the ipod

    General CommentMy Sharpest observation would not be thus...The fellow in this song can not see in the light. A not terribly bright interpretation would be thus... he is that he is blind because he he doesn't have pupils or can not blink. And finally, it would be a most terribly dim interpretation if I said that this person would benifit from a pair of sunglasses.
