Where do you go when it gets dark
And is there room for me there?
How long will it take you to wake up
Before you go, will you wake me?
Will you wake me up? Or I'll sleep all day

Miracle sun
Stay with me tonight
We don't wanna be without you
We'll come along so save a place for us
We don't wanna be left alone, no

Where do you go when it gets dark
And is there room for me there?
How long will it take you to wake up?
Make a promise to wake me
Will you wake me up?
Or I'll sleep all day and miss everything

Miracle sun
Stay with me tonight
We don't wanna be without you
We'll come along so save a place for us
We don't wanna be left alone, no

Miracle sun
Stay with me tonight
We don't wanna be without you
We'll come along so save a place for us
We don't wanna be left alone, no

Miracle sun
Stay with me tonight
We don't wanna be without you
We'll come along so save a place for us
We don't wanna be alone.

    General Commenttotally my view but it seems to me like hes talking about christ. I dont really think its right because it usually seems like he doesn't completley believe in that but..

    "Is there room for me there?"

    Like saying is there room for someone like me in heaven, also maybe referencing to the rapture type thing when he says "How long will it take you to wake up, before you go will you wake me?" like when is Christ coming back and could he go with him.

    And also "Miracle sun stay with me tonight, we don't want to be without you. We'll come along so save a place for us, we don't want to be left alone no."
    again the rapture, he doesn't want to be left behind.

    Or I could be reading way too much into it and it really is just about the sun.
    But maybe he's saying it figuratively like Gods the sun and the devil is the darkness.

    "Will you wake me up?
    Or I'll sleep all day and miss everything"
    Maybe saying He wants god to warn him when he comes back so he doesn't miss his chance.


    idk thats my best shot

    General CommentI think miracle sun is like a person who brightens his day.
    Without this person he would just sleep all day and never want to wake up.

    General CommentI think he is talking about the actual sun. He refers to things like this in his blogs: myspace/twitter about how he doesn't like that its getting darker sooner, and about the "sun" not coming out today. I think this is just a song about what it says. Enjoying a beautiful day in nature, and how it makes you feel.

    My InterpretationIt seems like a simple symbolistic plot. The sun stand for two things itself and in terms of the song a lover or significant other.

    Where do you go when it gets dark? - (The sun obviously sets. This questioned posed to a lover the answer would be bed, the next logical question is...)

    And is there room for me there? - (In bed... in case you weren't following)

    How long will it take you to wake up? - (Everyone anticipates the sun rise, maybe they're watching their lover dream.)

    Before you go will you wake me?
    Will you wake me up?
    Or I'll sleep all day - (Because more often than not that is the truth)

    Miracle Sun stay with me tonight, we don't want to be with out you. - (Speaking to both forms of the symbolism simultaneously. Seemingly to say you are my sun when the sun is gone so stay with me tonight.)

    We'll come along so save a place for us, we don't want to be alone - (Again speaking to both forms to the setting sun the pair are we. And with out the sun we are alone. And with the sun we are plural.)

    (Everyone still with me?)


    The rest of the song is repetition with a few minor changes in lyrics "Make a promise to wake me" and "Or I'll miss everything" basically a greater insistence on having the sun be present whether in reality or symbolically. The sun is life so in this song the symbolistic sun gives life when the real one cannot and if one is not awakened to see the sun they will miss everything entirely.
