"As Sure As The Sun" as written by and Peter B./been Hayes....
So now that everybody's gone
You see no change has come
In every song you've ever sung
You find the words were wrong

But now the time is gonna come
And there's no feeling lost
For everyone who could've loved
And made me not to love

And all the time
I thought your words were mine
You held me down
As sure as the sun
You held me down
As sure as the sun

Now I could see into your eyes
But there's no compromise
For anyone you coulda saved
But never recognized
And now your worries gonna fall
But I won't help at all
For everyone who sees the place
Who knows they can't belong

And all the time
I thought your words were mine
You held me down
As sure as the sun
You held me down
As sure as the sun

You've taken away
Much more than you gave
What keeps me down
I'm lost in a rage
No one can explain
What keeps me down
What keeps you down

So now that everybody's gone
You see no change has come
In every song you've ever sung
You find the words were wrong

And every paper that you read
You feel your spirit grieve
For everyone who's gonna fall
The distance another leaves

And all the time
I thought your words were mine
You held me down
As sure as the sun
You held me down
As sure as the sun

You've taken away
Much more than you gave
What keeps me down
I'm lost in a rage
No one can explain
What keeps me down
What keeps you down

    General CommentIt seems to be about mental illness. Which is to say it's about love.

    General CommentThis is my favourite song of the moment. I can't get over how great BRMC'S vocalists are, in every song. In this song though it's the drum beat that I really like. It's like the backbone of all the distorted guitar and scratchy vocal stuff. My favourite bit is at the end "What keeps me down what keeps you down". Wicked. Rock on.

    General CommentOops, hit the Add button by mistake....something really special and standout about the vocals of this band. This song is dreamy & sinfully sweet in the melody & delivery, but it's about lashing back at what holds you down.

    General CommentI think this song is about a person that you foolishly believe in but the person keeps on disappointing you, and you still blindly believe. I had a friend like that once. :P

    General CommentIt seems like it could be about a relationship where you realize the other person's love for you isn't mutual and the whole time they were just staying with you to keep you from moving on and finding someone else (maybe out of jealousy, selfishness, fear of hurting your feelings, or because they're using you).
