Ooh...when the sun comes up
And the shimmering light is just too much
That's when you know you've had enough
Ooh...when the sun comes up

There's no word for how you feel
There's no word for how you feel

Ooh...everything is made of glass
One false move, and it will crack
Oh how you wish the sun would just turn back
Ooh...and everything is made of glass

But there's no word for how you feel
There's no word for how you feel
There's no word for how you feel
There's no word for how you feel

"Not even in, German"

    General CommentSuch a great song from a great album. Nice to hear a little more from the bluesier side of Steve Turner's guitar skills on this lighter track.

    To me, they are contemplating the fragility of life. Everything you hold dear is made of glass, and if you screw up (drop it), you can lose it all in an instant.

    I laughed when I heard the spoken part at the end. We all have those times when words simply can't express our deepest feelings.
