"In the Sun (feat. Michael Stipe)" as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland and William Champion....
I picture you in the sun wondering what went wrong
And falling down on your knees asking for sympathy
And being caught in between all you wish for and all you seen
And trying to find anything you can feel that you can believe in

May God's love be with you
Always
May God's love be with you

I know i would apologize if i could see in your eyes
'Cause when you showed me myself,you know, i became someone else
But i was caught in between all you wish for and all you need
I picture you fast asleep
A nightmare comes
You can't keep awake

May God's love be with you
Always
May God's love be with you

'Cause if i find
If i find my own way
How much will i find
If i find
If i find my own way
How much will i find
You

I don't know anymore
What it's for
I'm not even sure
If there is anyone who is in the sun
Will you help me to understand
'Cause i been caught in between all you wish for and all you need
Maybe you're not even sure what it's for
Any more than me

May God's love be with you
Always
May God's love be with you
Always

    General CommentOh my I'm shocked to find this song commentless! But could someone tell me, was this song in the programme The O.C, it sounds very familiar. An all-round great song, the song speaks for itself I guess, no need to explain.

    General Commentstunning.

    about confusion.
    about wondering why everything that seems so good can turn out to be so bad.
    about losing something.
    about being lost.

    simply stunning.

    General CommentIf anyone has The Bourne Identity on DVD, and haven't watched the alternative ending - do it - because it's great and this song is in it, and it just makes it even more emotional
