Death Cab For Cutie – Black Sun Lyrics

There is whiskey in the water
And there is death upon the vine1
There is fear in the eyes of your father
And there is “Yours” and there is “Mine”2
There is a desert veiled in pavement3
And there’s a city of seven hills4
And all our debris flows to the ocean
To meet again, I hope it will5

How could something so fair
Be so cruel6
When this black sun7 revolved
Around you8

There is an answer in a question
And there is hope within despair9
And there is beauty in a failure
And there are depths beyond compare10
There is a role of a lifetime
And there’s a song yet to be sung11
And there’s a dumpster in the driveway
Of all the plans that came undone12

How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you
How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you

There is whiskey in the water
And there is death upon the vine
And there is grace within forgiveness13
But it’s so hard for me to find14

How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you
How could something so fair
Be so cruel
When this black sun revolved
Around you15
