"Sun Giant" as written by and Robin Pecknold....
What a life I lead in the summer
What a life I lead in the spring
What a life I lead when the wind did breeze
What a life I lead in the spring

What a life I lead when the sun breaks free
As a giant torn from the clouds
What a life indeed when that ancient seed
Is a-buried, watered, and plowed

What a life
What a life
What a life
What a life

What a life I lead in the summer
What a life I lead in the spring
What a life I lead when the wind did breeze
What a life I lead in the spring
