Brand New - Not The Sun Lyrics




Please don't be technology
So I can turn off your love
Like some cold machine

Don't feed me scraps from your bed
I won't be the stray coming back
Just to be fed

Don't be waves
Come and seal my fate, marine
Just pretend
That you want me

To be my babe, to be my babe
To be my babe, to be my babe
To be my babe, to be my babe
To be my babe, to be my babe
To be mine

Don't be that note I can't hold
Don't be that joke that I told and told
'Til it got old

Don't be that hand 'round my throat so I can't breathe
Say you're my friend
But why won't you be my family?

And if you breed
Just don't tell me

Be my babe, to be my babe
To be my babe, to be my babe
To be my babe, to be my babe
To be my babe, to be my babe

We will celebrate
But we've gone faster
We'll have our harmonies
Wanting quick slaughter and would you want me?
For the millionth time I've said it time and time again

Be my serene
Tell me you know what I mean
You've set on me but you are not the sun
You will not listen

How do they know that I am
(Burn it down)
I'm outside, I'm growing roots again
(Come around)
You've set on me but you are not the sun
You will not listen

Just pretend that you love me

And be my babe, to be my babe
To be my babe, to be my babe
To be my babe, to be my babe
To be my babe, to be my babe
To be mine

    Don't feed me scraps from your bed
    I won't be the stray comin' back just to be fed

    Don't be waves, come and seal my fate marine

    Be my babe, be my babe

    Be my babe, be my babe
    Be my—

    Well, don't be that note I can't hold
    Well, don't be that joke that I told and told till it got old
    Don't be that hand 'round my throat so I can't breathe
    Say you're my friend but why won't you be my family?

    And if you breed, just don't tell me

    And be my babe, be my babe

    Outside, I'm growin' roots again

    But you are not the sun
    You are not the sun
    You are not the sun 

    Prove me wrong

    The band that helped me get over my sexual assault is fronted by a fucking predator

  9. OnionHag

    Fuck Jesse Lacey for ruining this small comfort that was the band Brand New

  10. Evie

    this gives me a strange amount of elias and the error vibe (mostly the beginning)

  11. 1いかり

    2:04 the best thing the band has ever done

  12. VivaLa Veny

    YOU'VE SET ON ME BUT YOU ARE NOT THE SUN

    Please don't be technology
    So I can turn up your love like some cold machine
    Don't feed me scraps from your bed
    I won't be the stray coming back just to be fed

    I'll be wait
    Come and seal the fate, Marie

    Say you're my friend but why won't you be my family?

    And if you break
    Just don't tell me
    To be my babe

    To be my dream
    Tell me you know what I mean
    (Prove me wrong)
    You set on me but, you are not the sun
    You are not the sun
    (How do they know where I am?)

    Outside your cold lips again
    You set on me but, you are not the sun
    You are not the sun
    You are not the sun

    So let's pretend that you love me
    And be my bait
    To be my bait

  24. Danton Steele

    i guess sixx am Stars sounds alot like this

  25. James Johnson

    "you've set on me, but you're not the sun. Ahhhh the Feels!

  26. Ben Smith

    whenever i listen to this album im positive the song im listening to is my favorite.....and then the next song comes on

  27. Anna Harkins

    Does this remind anyone of Big Mouth Strikes Again by The Smiths?

    Daniel Gray

    Yeah it's done on purpose. Especially the opening 10 seconds. Exact same thing.

  28. Rachel Cherry

    What I hear is, "would you be my bae"

    Desolate Soul

    Not close. Brand New doesn't use ridiculous Bae in their music.

    countingcrows123

    I mean it is "be my babe." haha

    Desolate Soul

    LoL, That's much better CountingCrows. :) How it should be. :p

  34. TalonsBlazing

    these are the lyrics i kept missing :x

    (We would celebrate when you got my ring)
    (Our love cool in the rage of a sun)
    (If you want me, I'm available)
    (So take your time and arrange)

  35. Jaycee McMullen

    "Would you be my bae?"

  36. Jocey Unicorn

    BE MY BAE*

    Rob Faget

    If you're still using Bae, you need to rethink your life.

    l*tzy • 6 months ago

    @Rob Faget 4 years ago, Bob!

    Charles Mullen

    thats what he really meant but he was embarrassed to be public about it

  37. c alongi

    These lyrics are incorrect. And so incorrect that the meaning of some lines begin to change. 

    silentlyinmyheart

    @c alongi These look more correct than any lyrics I've ever seen around for this song. What are the correct ones, if you know them? (Edit: and by "look more correct", I mean these lyrics actually make more sense than the more commonly posted lyrics that everyone thinks are right...)

    jarhead4life

    @silentlyinmyheart I refer you to my comment from a day before yours, also in reply to this...

    silentlyinmyheart

    @jarhead4life I don't see that comment... o_O

    Ratan Isar Bhattacharya-Kashyap

    its be my babe. at least on genius and other lyric sites. things making sense is a matter of perception. so i mean it doesn't matter if it does to you. could be completely different. just sayin

  38. william cooper

    would you be my bait? ;D

  39. Leonan Fernandes

    you set on me but you are not the sun.

  40. lilalouwho

    Best band ever! Hands down.

  41. Joy Departed

    I get goose bumps Seventy times Seven times.

  42. Jake Wilkes

    2:04, possibly one of the best transitions I've ever heard

    Tribumfear

    Jake Wilkes oh it is fucking fantastic. makes the song for me

  43. Conner Houghtaling

    Oh. Shit. I could have sworn I was a million-mile ball of heat and raging gases.

    My bad.

  44. Dustin McMahan

    Wow. The lyrics posted are way off the mark.

  45. Kevin Gault

    it is bait

  46. Kooriaisu

    MAYBE ITS BASED BUMBUMBUMMMMMMMM

  47. DartPlaysGames!

    ruined it with the incorrect "u"

  48. Mickeym191

    Oh btw, the ending lyrics are the most clever and you've got those wrong as well. Listen carefully and you'll hear it.

    "You've set on me and you are not the sun
    You will not listen"

  49. Mickeym191

    "Please don't be technology"
    How do you seriously fuck up the opening line?

  50. rossmorris

    There's no lyrics with the CD.

  51. thaaeroprincess87

    I always thought he was saying "would you be my babe" as it is the only thing that makes sense in the context of this song.

  52. boop

    Can someone who owns this CD tell me if it's bait or babe they're saying? I've seen both but I don't know which one is correct.

  53. lsb3340

    then go listen to it you giant dumbfuck troll.

  54. Danton Steele

    hit me up.

  55. boarder12349

    Whatever floats your boat. Most people aren't really into S&M.

  56. ditavontrasch

    what the fuck did i just read?!

  57. Danton Steele

    oh shit this and the archers song are awesome......the best part of smoking the carpet, like what i heard on daisy.......its more tolerable than that nanny nanny boo boo interuption stuff on my superfiction album.....which, again..earshot and nonpoint are good and great also, but don'forget great white nor the killer in you....okie dokie.....that lil vegas guy alongside simon rex and miss my name is earl

  58. kunkle493

    best part 0:00 - 3:10

  59. shiggityshake

    I think this is my favorite Brand New song. I don't think it's their best but I can never get enough of it.

  60. Adrianna Meyer

    Yes Jesse,
    I will be your bait. <3

  61. Clifford Mcmurty

    wow, the lyrics attached to this desperately need revisions.

  62. natalie rose

    U ARE NOT THE FUCKING SUN!!

  63. Shadowlink283

    So wake me up before you gogo don't leave me hanging like a yo-yo

  64. infearandfaiith

    best part 2:03-2:37

  65. My Ps4 Account is mEcroboss

    the bridge part is one of the best lines i ever heard

  66. greatonecossy

    I LOVE this song. I love every Brand New song though, but recently I've been in the exact same position as Jessie is singing about and listening to this has been a life saver

  67. theloverkid

    I love the passionate vibes this song emits.

  68. Mnizzle420

    My fav. track off this album, miss these dudes, saw them twice live...so kick ass!

  69. sps2310

    my favorite cd of all time

  70. nihilistichotmagic
