"The Sun Doesn't Like You" as written by Norah Jones and Lee Alexander....
The sun doesn't like you
You always get burned
Stay in the shade,
And watch the world turn
Better find a new place
To lay on the ground
Can't stay where you are
Or you're gonna be found

And time won't pass you by
And I won't tell you lies

So tonight we can build a fire
In the open field past the razor wire
Sneak by the dogs
When they go to sleep
Bring part of yourself
That you'll let me keep

'Cause time won't pass us by
And I won't tell you lies
Someday I will ask you why, but not now

And time won't pass us by
And you won't tell me lies
Someday we all have to die, but not now

    General CommentMan, I am astonished! These words so fit to my situation...
    I think that here is about a person, a guy, who doesnt like much people, better say: afraid of people. A one who like lonelyness. Everytime he walks outside, the failure with people gets him. Maybe, the same thing is with girls.
    Of course, time wont pass him by, and he will lose a lot if he doesnt get strength and courage to deal with it.
    The voice, (she), is calling him to come to her at night, so they could make a big progress in man-woman relationship and share intime moments.
    "Bring part of yourself that you'll let me keep" - I think that this "part" means "worm feeling" (heart).
    I am not quite sure what "lies" means...
    "Someday we all have to die...", so why lose any more time on misunderstandings within genders when it is very simple!
    ... yeah, the "lies" may be "misunderstandings, passivity, fears of people"

    ...this is just my point of view...

    General Commentthis song to me is about a man/boy who isnt very social, and doesnt really know how to react with people. So 'she' is going to help him out at night wanting him to "sneak by the dogs when they go to sleep." to go and see her, so she can help him. and instead of just helping him, she is falling for him, even with all this flaws and weakness.
    just my idea of the song.
