"Hidden Sun" as written by and Kevin Neil Hearn....
Suddenly things become unsound
Stumbling on the shaky ground
Given arrows to shoot tornadoes down
Shoot them down, to the ground

Saw a falling leaf, a good luck jump to grab
Much to our surprise, a butterfly
Then it sunk in this enduration,
Enduration in our lives

Inside ourselves
A hidden sun that burns and burns
But never does any harm to anyone

Shivering madly in the dark
Like an animal abandoned in the car park
And she held me and then she showed me the
Beauty of the human heart

Inside ourselves,
A hidden sun that burns, and burns
But never does any harm to anyone
A hidden sun that burns, and burns
But never does any harm to anyone,
Anyone, oh, anyone.

Hidden sun, Hidden Sun

    General Commenti always thought it was a sort of "sequel" to "Tonight is the Night I Fell Asleep at the Wheel."

    General CommentI think it has something to do with Kevin's battle with death (was it cancer? i think).

    General CommentActually, I think it's about him/his life. I could be wrong. It's a love song? Finding yourself..? Maybe it's about

    someone who has been bad to another person and then..

    "Suddenly things become unsound
    Stumbling upon the shaky ground "

    and he realizes his mistakes with the help of a girl who makes him love her when she shwos him the
    "Beauty of the human heart "

    and they live happilly ever after!!!!
    the end! ! ! ! ! (just kidding)
    (please someone HELP me with this!!!! it's driving me NUTS!!! )

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that this song is referencing when he was sick.

    "Things become unsound" - bad news of being sick.

    "Saw a falling leaf, for good luck jump to grab" - It's good luck to catch a falling leaf and he's jumping for it because he needs good luck.

    "Shivering madly in the dark
    Like an animal abandoned in the car park
    And she held me and then she showed me the
    Beauty of the human heart "

    I'm pretty sure this is about being scare and alone in hospital room and having a nurse or someone comfort you and show you that you have this power inside of yourself that can get you through the lowest/hardest points in your life.

    The hidden sun that's in all of us is this tremendous strength/power that we all have.

    This song is one of the most meaningful and beautiful songs. It makes me tear up nearly everytime I hear it.

    Anyway, this song is about his fight with cancer...lukemia to be exact, I'm pretty sure it was lukemia. Sorry, I'm a stickler for details on these things and wanted everyone to get it straight!

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite BnL songs. Why don't they let Kevin sing more?

    Anyway, this song represents a transition in Kevin's life. He nearly died of Lukemia, and recorded an amazingly depressing album, H-Wing, while he was very sick. This song, on the other hand, is full of hope and beauty. It is a stunning song.
