Where I go tomorrow no one knows
The mind is traveling and the body it follows
I forget what's all around me
I forget my arms are empty
This is only temporarily so

I could not wait to see her
I could not pass the time
Tried not to get my hopes up
Tried not to call it anything
But I knew from even there

Everyday I have sunshine, thrown into my eyes (2x)

Coming home on Monday
A return to structured time
Feels like I'm going the wrong way
Try to take the feeling with me
My head is full and my hands are empty
This is only temporary

Things that were once in great supply
I have to learn how to survive
Knowing what's all around me
Forgetting the things I've carried
But I know someday they'll find me

Everyday I'll have sunshine, burned into my eyes (2x)

The snaking roads and their brake lights
Every morning is a good bye
Half the time it's a half-life
Half the year we don't see daylight

    General Commentwas just listening to this...a lovely song.

    to me, (very generally) the song's about not taking things for granted, and also the passing of time.

    "Everyday I have sunshine, thrown into my eyes / Everyday I'll have sunshine, burned into my eyes"

    I really like this line, and the subtle change on the second occassion it is sung. its like trying to grasp and value every moment when the "structured time" of everyday life can easily make everything blur into one and see us just drifting along in our everyday lives...

    Song MeaningThe cycle of looking forward to a weekend and being disappointed that one will go back to the american schedule of the 5 day school/work week is what this song is about. Maybe also, how this cycle renders us less happy with our lives, and like what tommmy expressed, taking moments for granted more often when this happens.

    General CommentThe meaning seems pretty straightforward to me. It's about a guy who temporarily visits his girlfriend (to be? -> "Tried not to get my hopes up, tried not to call it anything") only during the weekends, and who has to adjust to normal life again during the workweek. Thus the "Try to take the feeling with me, my head is full and my hands are empty." He's convinced he's going to be for her for always ("Everyday I'll have sunshine, burned into my eyes"), but until then "half the time it's a half-life, half the year we don't see daylight."
