"Watch The Sunrise" as written by Alex Chilton and Christopher Bell....
I can feel it, now it's time
Open your eyes
Fears begone, it won't be long
There's a light in the sky
It's okay to look outside
The day, it will abide
And watch the sunrise

Sun, it shines on all of us
We are one in its hand
Come inside and light my room
Like the heart of every man
It's okay to look outside
The day it will abide
And watch the sunrise

I can feel it, now it's time
Open your eyes
Fears begone, it won't be long
There's a light in the sky
It's okay to look outside
Your love it will abide
And watch the sunrise

    General CommentThis has got to be one of the most underrated Big Star songs of all time (if there is such a thing, since all of Big Star's material is underrated). This is definitely one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Quite amazing.

    General CommentThey left out the significant last line... "You love, it will abide."
    That line seems to sum up what's going on... he's spent the night with someone, someone who's probably insecure. She may often find her feelings fading after she sleeps with someone. Might have happened with him once before, even, and she doesn't want it to this time- so she doesn't want to get up, doesn't want to see the new day starting. But the singer is trying to reassure her that things will be different this time, so she might as well get up and watch the sunrise with him.

    General CommentI want this song played at my wedding. Well, at the reception. To me, it is kind of like starting a new day in life with my new wife, a new chapter, and together after we are married we will "Watch the Sunrise". A new day dawning. A fresh start. You get the idea.

    After all that rambling, I guess I just find this song encouraging.
