There's a great big tear in the skyline
No one can mend it, you want to pretend it isn't there
There is nothing but dark sky, feels like a far cry
From all of the sunny days before

You stole the sun
And all the flowers in the garden are never going to last
And you can runo, or you can bring them back to life
But they are fading fast

There's a girl that's needing the sunrise
And you know she won't rise or open her big brown eyes
'till she feels the light of a new day, or Touch of the sunrays
We Fear that this one may never wake

You stole the sun
And now your solar powered girl is never going to last
And you can run, or you can bring her back to life
But she is fading fast

You can't run forever
You can't run forever
You can't run forever (She's needing to wake now)
You can't run forever (She's needing to wake now)

You stole the sun
And now your solar powered girl is never going to last
And you can run, or you can bring her back to life
But she is fading fast

You stole the sun
And now your solar powered girl is never going to last
(You stole the Sun)
And you can run, or you can bring her back to life
(You stole the sun)
But she is fading fast

    My InterpretationI think of the song as instead of someone stealing the sun, someone stole the Son from a girl. Like sin keeps coming in to the girls life and it makes her lose her focus on God. And when the song says "But she's fading fast," like she's about to lose all her faith.
