"In the Sun (feat. Michael Stipe)" as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland and William Champion....
Lovers keep on the road your on
Runners until the race is run
Soldiers you've got to soldier on
Sometimes even right is wrong

They are turning my head out
To see what I'm all about
Keeping my head down
To see what it feels like now
But I have no doubt
One day, were gonna get out

Tonight, maybe we're gonna run
Dreamin' of the Osaka sun
Ohh, ohh, ohhh
Dreamin' of when the morning comes

They are turning my head out
To see what I'm all about
Keeping my head down
To see what it feels like now
But I have no doubt
One day, the sun will come out

Reign of love
I can't let go
To the sea I offer
This heavy load

Locusts will
Lift me up
I'm just a prisoner
In a reign of love

Locusts will
Let us stop
I wish I'd spoken
To the reign of love

Reign of love
By the church, we?re waiting
Reign of love
My knees go praying

How I wish
I'd spoken up
Or we'd be carried
In the reign of love

    General CommentOh my I'm shocked to find this song commentless! But could someone tell me, was this song in the programme The O.C, it sounds very familiar. An all-round great song, the song speaks for itself I guess, no need to explain.

    General Commentstunning.

    about confusion.
    about wondering why everything that seems so good can turn out to be so bad.
    about losing something.
    about being lost.

    simply stunning.

    General CommentIf anyone has The Bourne Identity on DVD, and haven't watched the alternative ending - do it - because it's great and this song is in it, and it just makes it even more emotional
