"Honey in the Sun" as written by and Tracyanne Campbell....
A half full moon in Mexico City I think of you
And when I saw the Southern Cross I wished you had too
I wish my heart was as cold as the morning dew
But it's as warm as saxophones and honey in the sun for you

Oh, I've been spending half the year in a plane going up and down
And you've been seeing other people from a nearby town
Been obsessing and getting depressed about us
Excess baggage and other stupid band stuff

I wish my heart was cold but it's warmer than before
I wish my heart was as cold as the morning dew
But it's as warm as saxophones and honey in the sun for you

When you said the veins in my left hand were shaped like a tree
Was that the very last time you really looked at me
I'm in training to become as cold as ice
I'm determined to protect my feelings to disguise

When I said I didn't love you I told a lie
Because there is no one above you though I try
Would you laugh at the time I spent calling your name
Over and over and over and over again

I wish my heart was cold but it's warmer than before
I wish my heart was cold but it's warmer than before
I wish my heart was as cold as the morning dew
But it's as warm as saxophones and honey in the sun for you

The trouble is I got me close to hating me
And when I wake up in the morning it's your face I see
Oh, you once made me feel less afraid
You've got me pouring myself over this page

I wish my heart was cold but it's warmer than before
Ooh, I wish my heart was cold but it's warmer than before
I wish my heart was as cold as the morning dew
But it's as warm as saxophones and honey in the sun for you
I wish my heart was as cold as the morning dew
But it's as warm as saxophones and honey in the sun for you

    General CommentLyrics transcribed from the booklet included with the "My Maudlin Career" CD. Parts in brackets were erronesouly left out of the booklet lyrics despite obviously being a part of the song. Parts enclosed in parentheses are in the booklet lyrics despite not actually being in the recorded version. Sans the bracketed and parenthetical parts, everything else from the booklet checks out to my ears.

    A half full moon in Mexico city {sic} I think of you
    [And] when I saw the Southern Cross I wished you had too
    I wish my heart was as cold as the morning dew
    But it's warm as saxophones
    And honey in the sun for you

    I've been spending half the year
    In a plane going up and down
    [And] you've been seeing other people from a nearby town
    Been obsessing and getting depressed about us
    Excess baggage and other stupid band stuff

    I wish my heart was cold
    But it's warmer than before
    I wish my heart was as cold as the morning dew
    But it's warm as saxophones
    And honey in the sun for you

    When you said the veins in my left hand
    Were shaped like a tree
    Was that the very last time you really looked at me?
    I'm in training to become as cold as ice
    I'm determined to protect my feelings (to) disguise
    [And] when I said I didn't love you I told a lie
    [Because] there is no one above you although I try
    Would you laugh at the time I spent calling your name
    Over and over and over and over again

    I wish my heart was cold
    But it's warmer than before
    I wish my heart was cold
    But it's warmer than before
    I wish my heart was as cold as the morning dew
    But it's warm as saxophones
    And honey in the sun for you

    The trouble is I got me close to hating me
    [And] when I wake up in the morning it's your face I see
    (Where) You once made feel less afraid
    You've got me pouring myself (all) over this page

    I wish my heart was cold
    But it's warmer than before
    I wish my heart was cold
    But it's warmer than before
    I wish my heart was as cold as the morning dew
    But it's warm as saxophones
    And honey in the sun for you

    [I wish my heart was as cold as the morning dew
    But it's warm as saxophones
    And honey in the sun for you]

    General CommentI've decided this is my favorite song on the album.

    Probably nothing describes how I feel.

    The lyrics are almost unpoetic.

    Being obsessively in love with someone far away who is probably never thinking of you back.
