Left bank I'm waiting for someone
Someone to be my friend
Outside traffic's running slowly
I hear it from my window

Without you I'm getting lost
Without you there's no release
I can't hold the sun
I can't hold the sun

It's raining
Love is not around me
How can it get so cold

Homesick
This is how I feel now
This is how you left me

Without you I'm getting lost
Without you there's no release
I can't hold the sun
I can't hold the sun
Without you I'm getting lost
Without you there's no release
I can't hold the sun
I can't hold the sun

    General Commenti feel like "i can't hold the sun" simply means that this person can no longer bear the weight of pretending to be so happy when all they feel is hurt and sadness.

    "without you, i'm getting lost."

    when i had someone leave me, this song just fed that for me. this song, especially the 'mmmm's, got me through a long, hot, completely heartbreaking summer. and i'd spend the entire time wondering why, when i was drenched in sweat from the sweltering summer temperatures, why i felt so cold. the first time i heard this song, it just ached, somewhere deep inside. it still does. but in a way, it will always remind me of that summer, and i wouldn't trade that for anything.
