When the Sun Hardly Comes Out

about

Here's a little folk alt rock track about Seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

lyrics

Dark when I go to work
Dark when I come home
Living in artificial light
Brings me so far down

Memories and reality
Find their way to destroy me
Leaving me in misery
I can’t shake

When the sun hardly comes out
When the sun hardly comes out
When the sun hardly comes out
I get down
Down, down, down

Everyone is buying things
Going to big parties
All I want to do is sleep
And hide

But nightmares wake me up
Haunted by spiraling thoughts
Just don’t see any joy
Or peace

When the sun hardly comes out
When the sun hardly comes out
When the sun hardly comes out
I get down
Down, down, down

Nothing that I do
Seems to change a damn thing
I’ll just keep pushing through
Until the light of spring

When the sun finally comes out
When the sun finally comes out
When the sun finally comes out
Lifts me up
Up, up, up, up, up…
