"Standing In the Sun" as written by and Jay/day Clifford....
Wanna turn it round for you
Don't turn away
I wanna turn it round for you
Don't turn away

I know you and I shoulda known better
I know you and I turning in
Well I don't mind and you don't care
If you and I go down
And we come undone
Find us a way out

I wanna turn it round for you
Don't turn away
I wanna turn it round for you
Don't turn away

Standing in the sun
I shoulda gone out there
Standing out but I am giving in
Well I can't find where I am
Standing on the edge
Of a curtain call
Is it good as done?

I wanna turn it round for you
Don't turn away
I wanna turn it round for you
Don't turn away

Standing in the sun
I can recall the looks on their faces
I would have turned around for you
For you

I know you and I could have done better
I know you and I are turning in
I don't mind if you care
You and I go down
And we come undone
Turn it inside out

I wanna turn it round for you
Don't turn away
I wanna turn it round for you
Don't turn away
Yeah

Don't don't don't turn away
Don't don't don't turn away
Don't don't don't turn away

    General CommentI heard this song back in April when Howie played at Kent. I am still trying to figure out what it means, though. I get a couple of angles from the lyrics... did this person jump into something too fast, and it fell apart ("I know you and I should've known better")? Or was the person too afraid to do something about a situation he/she was in ("standing in the sun/ I should've gone out there")?

    Regardless, it's a good song.

    at this part i feel like he's talking about how he's getting more famous, but he'd give it all up for this girl, like he cares that much. he says he's "standing in the sun" like he maybe he's in the spotlight, you know, but he would have left it for her. I also get that impression when he says hes on the edge of a curtain call, and i was trying to figure out the deeper meaning to that. maybe like the end of their relationship, he wants to make it work. the more i think about it the more i disagree with what i just wrote. kind of confusing. i love howie. was anybody at his show today at brown?

    General Commenti think ur right angel except i dont think hes that vain to talk about how hes getting famous. i think hes just saying that hes too wrapped up to back up now but he would have if she had given him reason too
