in the absence of sun 
lyrics and music by duncan sheik

For all the good you say it does
It feels no better when youíve had your say
You may believe itís just because
The words get colder when youíve gone away

I thought I understood
What I was to you...

I donít want to feel this way
I donít want to say Iím just a friend
I donít want to wait around here
ĎCos you donít want to feel no pain again
We just lie about it...
As we become shadows of ourselves

Some may fear committed lives
I sure am one of them without you
Does it come to you as some surprise
I laid the ground beneath to doubt you

Was it ever girl
Something you could hold...

I donít want to feel this way
I donít want to say Iím just a friend
I donít want to wait around here
ĎCos you donít want to feel no pain again
We just lie about it...
As we become shadows of ourselves

I donít want to look away
I donít want to be the one denied
It ainít no fault of mine
If someone, somewhere told you lies
But we donít talk about it
We just become shadows of ourselves
