lyrics

LITTLE GIRL OF THE SUN
Written in December 2008 & February 2009

Little girl of the sun
I wish that you had come
Ten minutes earlier
Little girl of the sun

You know you light up the room
And everyone seems to move
‘Cause of what you are doing
Lighting up the room

Your little boy’s out in the rain
He’s wishing that he’d stayed
Ten minutes longer
In out of the rain

We’re selling everything
Everything must go
We’ve never worn a ring
Bargain prices
Shoes displayed across the floor
Jacket never worn before

We’re up against the wind
He’s giving it everything
He keeps blowing stronger
We’re up against the wind

Yeah he’s giving it all he’s got
And he’s going red in the face
We’re just gonna tighten the knot
He’s giving it all he got

We need the hot sun to dry our coats
And it’s shining down across the road
Stay ten minutes longer
And the hot sun will dry our coats

I’m leaving with you
I knew as soon as you walked in
That I just had to have you
My little girl of the sun

La la la Little girl of the sun

Is that alright with you?
I’m leaving with you
I just had to have you
My little girl of the sun
