"Caught In The Sun" as written by and Mark Wilkerson....
You're my distance, destination of choice
I'd give anything just to hear your voice
I could have passed you on the street
Without saying a word
Most times, I miss the voice that goes unheard

What if I missed you
You got caught in the sun
What if I did something never to be enough

People everywhere how could I be sure
If it's you that I have been looking for
What would it take for me to be comfortable
With you, with me you're the chosen one

What if I missed you
You got caught in the sun
What if I did something never to be enough

You are there for me
This I hope and pray
Will you wait for me
Or will I be too late this time

What if I missed you
You got caught in the sun
What if I did something never to be enough

Will you wait for me
Or will I be too late this time
You are there for me
This I hope and pray

    My OpinionMaybe the scariest song I've ever heard.

    What if you did miss him / her? Like the song says, what if you were distracted by the sun, and they passed on by in that instant of blindness? What if they've come and gone and are over the horizon forever? Or is there some destiny holding them somewhere in a moment just for us, unbreakable and certain?

    Let's hope so.

    General CommentAre those the correct lyrics for this song? The ones I got from the internet go something like this:

    You're my distant destination of choice
    I'd give anything
    Just to hear your voice

    I could have passed you on the street
    Without saying a word
    Most times
    I miss the voice that goes unheard

    What if I missed you
    You got caught in the sun
    What if I did something
    Never to be undone

    People everywhere
    How could I be sure
    If it's you
    That I have been looking for

    What would it take for me
    To be comfortable
    With you, with me
    You're the chosen one

    What if I missed you
    You got caught in the sun
    What if I did something
    Never to be undone

    You are there for me
    This I hope and pray
    You will wait for me
    I won't be too late

    (Repeating chorus)

    I was also wanting to know what the meaning of this song means. If you or anyone knows, please let me
    know. Thanks. :)

    General Commentit seems to me that this song refers to that idea that we are looking for the one person we are meant to be with. what if we have already met them and something happened to make it go bad, that can't be undone? or what if we walked right by them on the street never knowing it was them? basically lost opportunities, missed chances, or still searching. also i think the second set of lyrics is probably more accurate, it seems to make more sense.

    General Commentfirst off id like to say they are a great band great vocals, instrumental and lyrical. and i think spoon is right. i think its about missed opportunities and the possibility you could have passed your true love without ever knowing it.

    General CommentThis song means to me exactly what spoon said, this song really hits home with me, I know the feeling of of missing "the one". I thought I lost the one about 3 years ago, then about 3 months ago we got back together and things are better then ever, I really love her, and this song reminds me of the time when I thought I had lost her.

    General Commentok well i think spoon is right ..and its a really touching song because i think it means like what spoon says and its hard being patient and then thinking, "wow, what if i just missed the chance or lost something that was hella valuable"...knowing you missed out is really hard and it hurts ..its like this song talks about the mystery of it all .. what if ..what if... well also these guys are from my hometown ..i didnt know them just heard of them ..they are really great ..

    General Commentactually, the second vs is right in the first entry as oppose to the 2nd entry, they're both right and wrong, just gotta cut them both up and peice em together and listen to the song very carefully..

    General Commentthere are certain parts of this song that I can really relate to...I just lost my boyfriend and our best friend in a car accident a few weeks ago. it really makes me think about them waiting for me...if I'll ever see them again...and how much I miss hearing their voices...

    General CommentFirst off i would just like to say that this group is really really awsome. Any and every song has a meaning to it, but this one really gets me. It is really easy to relate too. I am going to have the opportunity to see them in concert 2 times this month. Some friends of mine saw them last month and the lead singer was talking about the meaning of it.....and spoon76 hit it right on the spot
