Swiftly go the days
Sunrise, sunset You wake up, then you undress It always is the same
A sunrise and the sun sets You’re lying while you confess Keep trying to explain
A sunrise and the sun sets You realize then you forget What you’ve been trying to retain
But everybody knows it’s all about the things That get stuck inside of your head Like the songs your roommate sings A vision of her body as she stretches out on your bed
And she raised her hands in the air asked you When was the last time you looked in the mirror? 'Cause you have changed, yeah, you have changed
Sunrise, the sun sets You are hopeful, then you regret The circle never breaks
With a sunrise and a sunset There’s a change of heart or address Is there nothing that remains?
For a sunrise or a sunset You’re manic or you’re depressed Will you ever feel okay?
For a sunrise or sunset Your lover is an actress Did you really think she’d stay?
For a sunrise or sunset You’re either coming or you just left But you’re always on the way
Towards a sunrise or a sunset A scribble or a sonnet They are really just the same
To the sunrise and the sunset The master and his servant Have exactly the same fate
It’s a sunrise and a sunset From a cradle to a casket There’s no way to escape
The sunrise and the sunset Hold your sadness like a puppet Keep putting on the play
But everything you do is leading to the point Where you just won’t know what to do And at that moment you may laugh but there is someone There who will be laughing louder than you
So it’s true, the trick is complete Become everything you said that you never would be You’re a fool, you’re a fool
Sunrise, sunset Sunrise, sunset Sunrise and the sun sets
Sunrise, sunset Sunrise, the sun sets Sunrise, the sun sets
Sunrise, sunset Go home to your apartment Put the cassette in the tape deck and let that fever play
Sunrise, sunset Where are you, Arienette? Where are you, Arienette?
Swiftly go the days
