SUNSCREEM HQ notes

In the spring of 2010 the band were asked to headline a festival near Beijing and they invited members of the original line-up to join them on the trip to Hebei province. One thing lead to another, and the team that had recorded the band’s debut album “O3” got back together to record “Sweet Life”.

Lyrics

I don’t know why
I love you but
I do

As the sun goes down
I belong
As the moon rises
I belong

You do what you want, and you say what you want
And you think what you want, and no one can tell you to stop

(Hello
PS: And by the way… Hello my friend, I’m here to stay)

Open your eyes…

What would you do if I packed up and left tomorrow?
When would you say if I confessed that I don’t love you anymore?
I’m not gonna choose between you now, drowning in sorrow
Our time yesterday may have been blessed but we lost something on the way

And then forgot what we mislaid
We think we know it all today

Open your eyes

You do what you want, and you say what you want
And you think what you want, and no one can tell you to stop

How many moons are going to wane before you grow old?
How many skies must grow dark before the wind breaks down your door?
You’re Nero in Rome getting high while I go so low
Stick in a groove we grow apart, now love will never be the same

We think we know it all again
What did we lose or throw away?

Open your eyes

Kiss me like a stranger

I know you’re wicked
Well, I’m wicked too
I know you love it
When I’m watching you

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
Like the blind leading the blind
Leading the blind, leading the blind
Leading the blind

All my love
We can be together
All my love
We can see forever

All my love
We can bleed together
All me love
We concede forever

Take my picture, take my hell
Take my money, my love as well
But you can’t take my soul
You can’t take my soul

Have my passion, have my downfall
Have my heaven, my warts and all
But you can’t have my soul
You can’t have my soul

You’re welcome baby

Here’s a mirror, here’s a thought
Here’s my silver, see you in court
But you can’t have my soul
You can’t have my soul

You’re welcome baby

Sweet life, sweet love
Sweet love, sweet life

Brighter than the sun
Power of the wind
How could you sign your life away
How could you sign your life away

Sweet love, sweet life
Sweet love, sweet life

Oh God, what have we done
What have we begun
How could you blow your life away
How could you blow your life away

Sweet love (blowing away), sweet life
Sweet love (blowing away), sweet life
Sweet life (slipping away), sweet love
Sweet love (slipping away), sweet life

Why did you sign your life away
Why did you sign your love away

Sweet love (blowing away), sweet life
Sweet love (blowing away), sweet life
Sweet life (slipping away), sweet love
Sweet love (slipping away), sweet life

Better lock your room girl
Sitting in the gloom girl
Never stick around and pretend
Better pack your bags girl
Never looking back girl
Better hope your friends stay friends

What will the sun say
What will the sun say

Rain cloud overhead now
Raining in your bed now
Driving in the senseless dawn
Stupid little slapper
Karma comes back at ya
Wish you never had been born

What will the sun say

Hide the deeds that you’ve done
Or what will the sun say
Pleading you’ve done no wrong
Or what will the sun say

Never mind the weather
Tears and rain together
Family album ripped on the floor
Stupid, stupid mother
Dirty little daughter
Wish you never had been torn

What will the sun say (x4)

Hide the deeds that you’ve done
Or what will the sun say
Pleading you’ve done no wrong
Or what will the sun say

Shut up, shut up
Am I invisible
Shut up, shut up
Tongue-tied and miss-able
Wake up, wake up
Wake to the grey light
Wake up, shake up
Here comes the daylight

I’m taking you down
I’m taking you down when I go
Who’s kissing you now
I bet she’s missing your mouth

Shut up, shut up

Wise up, guise up
Size up the shopping mall
Wise up, rise up
They think they’ve got it all
Wake up, wake up
Wake from the grey light
Wake up, shake up
Here comes the sunlight

I’m taking you down
I’m taking you down when I go
Who’s kissing you now
I bet she’s missing your mouth

Shut up, shut up

I’ll find love again, so they say
But I can’t take one more day
With you

I’m taking you down
I’m taking you down when I go
Who’s kissing you now
I bet she’s missing your mouth

Shut up, shut up

I’ll find love again, so they say
But I can’t take one more day

Shut up, shut up

I feel lucky
Be my luck tonight
I feel lucky
I feel lucky
Be my luck tonight
I feel lucky

Come again, again, again, again
Again, again, again, and again

I don’t feel sleepy
Be my love tonight
I don’t feel sleepy
I don’t feel sleepy
Be my love tonight
I don’t feel sleepy

Come again, again, again, again
Again, again, again, and again
Come again, again, again, again
Again, again, again, and again

I feel dizzy
Be my lust tonight
I feel dizzy
I feel dizzy
Be my lust tonight
I feel dizzy

Come again, again, again, again
Again, again, again, and again

Come again, again, again, again
Again, again, again, and again
And again

It’s cold outside
Jack Frost at my window
Snowflakes falling on my lawn
But it’s warm inside
I got you for my pillow
I feel far away from harm

Here’s the summer
Here’ the fall
Here’s the summer
Forget it all

And all that I do is look at you
Here’s the summer

Nothing lasts forever

Come on, come on yeah
Come on, come on yeah

Gimme your pounds
Gimme your dollars
Because you’re a long time dead
Gimme the sounds
Gimme the rhythm
I’m gonna dance instead

They take your pounds
They take your dollars
But they’re a long time dead
Give us the sounds
Give us the rhythm
We’re gonna dance instead

Sweet Life
