Loneliness is a cloak you wear
A deep shade of blue is always there

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore
The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky
The tears are always clouding your eyes
When you're without love...baby


Emptiness is a place you're in
With nothing to lose, but the more to win

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore
The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky
The tears are always clouding your eyes
When you're without love

Lonely
Without you, baby
Girl, I need you
I can't go on

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore
The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky
The tears are always clouding your eyes
When you're without love...baby

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore
The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky
The tears are always clouding your eyes
(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)
When you're without love...baby

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore
The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky
The tears are always clouding your eyes
(The sun ain't gonna shine anymore)
When you're without love...baby

    General CommentI think the feeling he describes is something everyone had to go through, whose heart has once been broken, what do you think?

    "A deep shade of blue is always there."
    I think he means by that expression that if you lost someone you really loved and still care about you can't really enjoy anything, no matter how much you used to like the things you are doing. I really know that so well, a silly example: I went out dancing with some friends and they were playing really good music but I couldn't be happy about that as nearly each song reminded me of the person I was missing.

    "The sun ain't gonna shine anymore
    The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky."
    I think this corresponds more or less with the fact that even though you've been left behind the world around you keeps on turning but for you it is not as you have the impression you just lost everything you ever had.
    In another song it is said: "Can't understand/ How eveyone goes on breathing/ When True love ends." I guess, that idea fits very well with the message of the Keane song.
