about

Staying in lock-step with the futuristic theme of Rocket Tangerine, “Sonshine” is a song about searching after the heart of God with reckless abandon. Throughout the track, H.T.W.O. paints the picture of a spacecraft journeying across the stars, obsessively seeking to draw closer to the Sun. Dark River’s brilliant musical composition lends itself to H.T.W.O.’s sci-fi analogy, almost eerily, in this classic treat.

lyrics

Verse 1:
Sonshine
The brightest thing in my universe
Driftin through the emptiness
Then I discovered you. At first
The view it hurt my eyes
Your radiance drew me in
Your warmth began to penetrate
And saturate my skin
And that’s where I begin, or end
I can’t explain
I lose all track of time in your presence
As seasons change
Your glow remains the same
My craft continues onward
I wanna gaze into your glory
As I’m standing facin starboard
I dare to take it farther
Into the vast expanse of space
Til I’m knockin on your doorstep
And I meet you face to face
Cause you set this heart ablaze
Like you set this vessel’s coordinates
I once was floating aimlessly
But now I’m in your orbit
Yet my desire is more than
Being satisfied beside
I’m locked in gravitational pull
Til we collide
When I’m with you I’m alive
But apart from you I’m worthless
So I’ll send this ship to dive
And crash into your surface

Chorus:
You can be my Sonshine,
You can be my moonlight,
You can be my everything, and everything
Cause everything is what you are, What you are

Verse 2:
So burn up everything inside of me
That’s not of you
I’ve trekked across this galaxy
To see the sight of you
I couldn’t find my way
But you were there to guide me through
In a holy blaze of glory
I’ve been totally consumed
Moth to a flame
Candle to a lighter
Melt me down to nothing
So you can take me higher
Your purity inspires
This obsession to get closer
You’re the star and director
And my life’s the movie poster
Your beauty is a scene
That could never be eclipsed
Your love engulfs me wholly
Like I’m in a sea of bliss
And I’m just like a satellite moon
That merely reflects you
You shine beyond my dark side
With a light that projects through
I press the glass I’m next to
And brace myself for impact
With heat upon my face
And only seconds to give back
The hull’s no longer in tact
And oxygen starts to leave
But you’re my sun, my everything
Even air that I breathe

Chorus:
You can be my Sonshine,
You can be my moonlight,
You can be my everything, and everything
Cause everything is what you are, What you are

Outro:
Moth to a flame
Candle to a lighter
Melt me down to nothing
So you can take me higher

Moth to a flame
Candle to a lighter
I’m the rocket fuel
But you ignite my fire
