"Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Your Grievances" as written by Laura Bundy, Seth Jones and Doug / Johnson....
Don't let the sun go down on your grievances
Respect love of the heart over lust of the flesh
Do yourself a favor: become your own savior
And don't let the sun go down on your grievances

And when you wake up in the morning
You'll have a brand new feeling
And you'll find yourself healing
So don't let the sun go down on your grievances

And yet if you find yourself in the dark
And you're left holding the bag
Then take care of it right away
And don't let the sun go down on your grievances again

Sometimes you might want to give up
But keep that chin up
Cause you're gonna find
You're gonna find

Sometimes you might be alone
But don't feel lonely
Cause you're gonna find
You're gonna find
And
Don't let the sun go down on your grievances
Start each day with a clean slate
You'll feel better if you can shake off all that hate
And don't forget to forgive and forget
Don't let the sun go down on your grievances

Don't let the sun go down on your grievances everybody!
Respect love of the heart over lust of the flesh
Sing it!
Do yourself a favor: become your own savior
And don't let the sun go down on your grievances

    General CommentThis song asks a person to be honest with him or her self. It tells of the healing that can occure if you don't confine or shut in harmful emotions that interfere with your general happiness. Many don't realize the extent to which certain emotions become suffocating if left unmoderated.

    This song is a Jewl for its candidness and the shear necessity of the message..."Do your self a favor, and become your own Savior". Luv it!

    General CommentWhy did Daniel choose to sing 'griev*i*ance'? I think if he had sung 'grievances' the song would not have been so good, but I'm not sure why. Maybe it's something to do with him making the song more personal with his neologism...?
