"Black Out the Sun" as written by Darren Hayes and Carl Falk....
No turn off the sun
Take down the moon
For I don't need them anymore
Go switch off the stars
And paint the sky black
Love isn't ever coming back
There is no use in imagining a world without you
Your love was like a drug I was addicted to

'Cause there is nobody else who could hurt like you hurt me
I don't want to be lonely
And there is no other way
There's no joy
There's no meaning
Just this hollowed out feeling
Now all the loves gone
And nothing grows here
And I just feel wrong so black out the sun
And all that we shared will slowly disappear
There's a hole where my soul used to grow
So just black out the sun

No stop all the rain and poison the ground
Love doesn't want to hang around
Go turn all the fruits into bitter wine
It was only sweet when you were mine
There is an emptiness inside of me
Since you been gone
All the world has lost it's meaning
All my colors run
'Cause there is nobody else who could hurt like you hurt me
I don't want to be lonely
And there is no other way
There's no joy
There's no meaning
Just this hollowed out feeling
Now all the loves gone
And nothing grows here
And I just feel wrong so black out the sun
And all that we shared will slowly disappear
There's a hole where my soul used to grow
So just black out the sun

And nothing compares
How could it even dare
Cause now that love's gone I want to black out the sun
'Cause there is nobody else who could hurt like you hurt me
I don't want to be lonely
And there is no other way
There's no joy
There's no meaning
Just this hollowed out feeling
Now all the loves gone
And nothing grows here
And I just feel wrong so black out the sun
And all that we shared will slowly disappear
There's a hole where my soul used to grow
So just black out the sun

    Song MeaningThis song is pretty clear about what it means - the end of a relationship and how utterly devastating it can be. I love how Darren's perfectly captured the exact way it feels - hollowed-out, empty, as if the world is worth nothing without the person you loved beside you.

    General CommentThis song is a fantastic modern take on the WH Auden poem 'Funeral Blues'/'Stop all the clocks', particularly the last stanza:

    The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
    Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
    Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
    For nothing now can ever come to any good.

    To me, this song is very much about contemplating the death of someone the narrator loves very much and the devastating effect that would have on the rest of the narrator's life. It's the first frenzy of grief when you don't understand how the world can go on without the person you loved, and you feel that nothing matters anymore or ever will.
