"You Are My Sun" as written by and Mark Edward Kozelek....
You are my light
Dark cities, you fill the loss
Of the day
You are my love
Radiant and pretty, over seas
You find ways of bringing hope
The lonely hours, gloom of night
Empty mornings
You are a stem, of wild flowers
Rollin' hills, 'round the bay
You are a gap
In the meadow, soaring low
In this way, you are my friend
In the shadows, there to bring
When I need
You are the suites
Of the cellos
There to mend, if I bleed
You are a swing
Sleepy porches, the warm light
On my face
You are a charge, of wild horses
You are the sun
You are my sun
Seeping over, spilling out
Over the mountains
You are my sun

Leona, Leona, Leona
Leona, Leona, Leona
Your fingers
Breathe with grace and ease
A gentle wave
Of guitars playing

Leona, Leona, Leona
Leona, Leona, Leona
Does sense of stares
Light as air
Verses sound, everywhere

Leona, Leona, Leona

    General CommentI have a strange feeling this song was somewhat written to Liona Boyd, a classical guitarist who Mark takes influence after.

    "Your fingers
    breathe with grace and ease
    A gentle wave
    Of guitars playing"

    General Commentamazing, realism at its best. One of the best contemporary songwriters. He´s just as good as Van Morrison, Nick Drake and the Magnetic Fields.
    Guess the ending is somebit classical for my taste.

    You are a gap
    In the meadow, soaring low
    In this way, you are my friend
    In the shadows, there to bring

    My favourite verses.
