Somewhere there's a sea that has no other side
Somewhere there's an airplane lost beyond the sky
So fly us up above the clouds
and live your life where you are now

In the darkness round the sun
There's the light behind your eyes
When you've lost the will to run
You can feel it start to shine
When the rain falls down so hard
and you don't know where to start
Drowning in the sun

Somewhere someone thinks they've found the perfect love
and you think you found the answer to all of this
So hang on, sometimes we miss
and I'll be your perfect kiss

In the darkness round the sun
There's light behind your eyes
When you've lost the will to run
You can feel it start to shine
When the rain falls down so hard
and you don't know where to start
Drowning in the sun

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, I can't believe no one's commented on it!
    Personally, I like Alexz's (Jude) version better than Zoie's (Patsy).

    I think it's about all of a person's struggles as they go through life; she's reminding them to hang on and live their life where they are now, see the sun shining when they've lost their way. She's telling them to drown in the sun, in all its brightness, to in a way, be blind and focus on only the sun -- their hope -- and not see anything else.

    It kind of reflects the time in Patsy's life when she sings this, right before her death in the show. But Patsy lost the sun..
