"Sunlight" as written by Kelsey Regina Byrne and Daniel Norman Goldstein....
I had a coat of many colors
sold it off online
and now I duck my older brothers
'neath a longleaf pine
well I did what I thought I was supposed to do
all I sang so close to true
now they wanna know what really means the most to you
means the most to you

Sunlight, sunlight baby
we just let go of the night now slowly
we won't dance, we won't sing, we won't talk
we just gonna watch how it bends

I had a coat of many colors
sold it off in time
now I'm just a laymen pagan
in a young man's grind
well I did what I thought I was supposed to do
all I sang so close to true
now I wanna be the one that means the most to you
means the most to you

Long live sunday seekers
slack-jawed by the speakers
long live pro-am pagans, tonight

Sunlight, sunlight baby
we just let go of the night now slowly
we won't dance, we won't sing, we won't talk
we just gonna watch how it bends

    General CommentYeah, he defiantly doesn't say "in time".
    Yeah, Jupiter is one of the best albums of the year, along with the Passion Pit album and Grand by Matt and Kim.

    General Commenthe never says sold it off "in time"- it's "online" both times
    although i've seen live footage where he says "in time"

    General CommentIts a tongue-in-cheek account of the story of Joseph from the bible. Joseph had been given a coat of many colors by his father, and his brothers became so jealous that they sold him and his coat into slavery.
