"In Every Sunflower" as written by and Paul John Weller....
My book has more bookmarks than pages
Cause it take me ages
Or is everybody reading
Is everybody reading

Standing on a black Ulster hill
I never fear the chill
Cause everybody's holding
Everybody's holding

I wouldn't swap the pain
For never knowing you
I wouldn't swap the pain
It was worth it for the view

My book has more bookmarks than pages
Cause it take me ages
Or is everybody reading
Is everybody reading

Of a sparkling Medusa
With snakes of cerise and blue
And though we're all pillars of salt now
It was worth is for the view

I wouldn't swap the pain
For never knowing you
I wouldn't swap the pain
Cause it was worth it for the view

We're still watching
Your rainbow through the shower
And we still see you
In every sunflower
We're still watching
I make days from the hours
And I still see you
In every sunflower
Every screaming sunflower

And how they scream of you

    General Comment"Though we're all pillars of salt now
    It was worth it for the view."

    I think this refers to the bible story where God destroys Sodom but saves Lot and his family but Lot's wife looks back at the destruction of the city and gets turned into salt. I like the way he twists this metaphor, to me saying, we might be looking back at pain and thus get 'turned into salt', but it's worth it. Man this is such a beautiful song. Every line is just gorgeous
