Hawley, Richard - Don't Stare At The Sun Lyrics




Love just drifts us on,
On our way, to the fields where we will play today.
Louis brings his kite,
With a homemade paper-chain.
Strange to see the sight,
Of the moon, in the daytime not the night.
I will lift you up,
So high, on my shoulders to the sky.
Ahhh...

Don't stare at the sun too long.
Don't stare at the sun too long.
Singing in the dark,
On our way home, the day is done for sleepy ones.
On the fire escape,
My telescope, that scans the evening sky.
If I could see it all,
All to be lost, in the galaxy of distant stars.
Did I see your face?
It weighs so much, to be alone tonight.
Ahhh...

Don't stare at the sun too long.
Don't stare at the sun too long.
You scare everyone,
If you stare at the sun.
Don't stare at the sun too long.

Don't stare at the sun too long...

Hawley, Richard Don't Stare At The Sun Comments
  1. Ingy

    3.50+mins in sounds like the theme from The walking Dead.
    This is a great song.

    I will lift you up,

    Ah
    Don't stare at the sun too long.
    Don't stare at the sun too long.
    Singing in the dark,
    On our way home, the day is done for sleepy ones.
    On the fire escape,

    LISTENING TO RICHARD HAWLEY IS LIKE TAKING A WARM BATH  LATE AT NIGHT & SOAKING IN IT . .

    Mod Mutha

    Near the strines near bradfield. Looks like the area where they cleared some of the pines

  15. wanda vergues

    Carlos Humberto Stein

    wanda vergues 😊

  16. Peter Smart

    I love this...a really subtle yet powerful film reflecting his music and lyrics so well. Another true heartfelt song from Mr Hawley. Richard, can you please do more shows down south? ie Bristol area?

  17. like life with an edge the man can deliver

  18. Carolina Contreras

    El video es realmente impecable. Amo a Richard.

  19. Brad Clark

    Stare at the stars. They're more beautiful anyways.

    Alonso Arcos

    the sun is a star

    Everything is star, you are everything. Star dust is you... You are the dust of a star.

    Raul Roque

    The sun is a prominent star. Don't let the heavy light blind you and drift you off. Low lights are just as necessary as high lights. You got to be low to go high, and high to go low. It's up to you to find the balance.

    R.I.P. Don Valley Stadium

  21. Hembo GT-eyed

    Heartbreaking, life-affirming and breath-taking. Beautiful.

  22. Gill Smith

    what's the merchandise with this guy's music, slippers?

    Kram Niboh

    hahaha great comment. I'd love a pair of Hawley slippers.
    I'd call them Dick Slip Ons.

  23. Patrick Bachmann

    Amazing song. 

  24. cerfsvolants

    loneliness is relative with him

  25. bartolomju

    watch?v=sZfBR5G8FZ8 u2 - the gound beneath her feet 2:31? ;)

  26. Mark Rawson

    Good spot

  27. Ciara Brennan

    I've never seen one on the right, you wouldn't be able to see it with the suggestion videos.

  28. Mandatory Distraction

    He could have meant right. The ads change every so often and the singer could have been anyone.

  29. gerkoprins

    Maybe I am the walrus by Oasis?

  30. Joe Dewick

    Listen to the first 8 seconds very carefully! I've cleverly noticed that the fade in before the guitar is actually from Hawley's song "Last Orders" from his Coles Corner Album. You'd have to have the volume turned up loud to hear it closely.

  31. Colguitar Colguitar

    3.57 reminds me of fingers of love by crowded house a bit, different tempo but same vibe

  32. Colguitar Colguitar

    Love it :)

  33. intensivevid

    3:57 - this guitar riff, it sounds like something i heard before, Any types?

    Victor Gelis

    intensivevid it reminds me a lot of ´Love is blindness' by U2. Staring at the sun too long makes you blind. I'd love to know if this was intentional, but I love the idea anyway

  34. ashkeeper

    Amazing song!

  35. Ciara Brennan

    You mean left, what kind of idiot doesn't know their left from right lol I don't like Rihanna and I'm not defending her either if that's what you're thinking.

  36. gyloir

    His voice reminds me of Chris Martin (Coldplay), very similar sounding voice, to me at least.
    Love this song.

  37. TheBobostuv

    Yeah, when he turns you can see he's wearing glasses.

  38. avocadoe

    This sounds so good <3.

  39. Matthew Ross

    Thank you Alan Moulder!

    If I honestly have to tell you not to stare at the sun, then please do so.

  44. Jenny

    vilken skit

  45. hipervision

    MNOU si grozen we....urud mangalski

  46. Withme Whostoned

    One word resolves all the possible confusions about this world - greed. It all leads to greed.

    For money, fame, appreciation, love..anything. Having lack of and undertaking actions in order to fulfill the void. Greed drives it all. No entirely a bad thing, but the world you see around is the consequence of it.

  47. Sam Blonde

    I do understand fully, but nevertheless it is still confusing. To be fair though Richard Hawley's tracks are not really played much on regular radio shows to reach a wider audience, it seems manufactured pop is riding that wave again and that is paid for advertisement in the industry by the label. Shame.

  48. jimbobond

    Heard this on Radio 2 tonight and was blown away by its beauty, it was like the feeling I had when I first heard Lewis Taylor I just wanted to tell everyone. Reading some of the comments I was surprised to see mediocre?

  49. Caio Icaro

    Stare Into the Sun

  50. Alejandro Lizama

    terribly mediocre music. nice images. best was 01:54

  51. The01234567893

    I hate music like this.. But I love this song!

  52. momarach

    Beautiful....hypnotic

  53. Theo Liger

    Brilliant

  54. Tasha

    Addictive 3 this is the first time I've heard this song and I've replayed like 10 times already :-)

  55. Withme Whostoned

    Either you understand once and for all that majority of people are stupid pricks and the feeble intellect of theirs will always draw them to superficial shit, or you keep on wondering forever why videos like this have so few views.

  56. Cam D.

    Sir, I'll be your tour guide for The Internet.

  57. BitchPleeeeez

    this is the most boring song/video i've ever heard/seen

  58. Dennis Rogers

    doctors should prescribe this song instead of sleeeping pills

  59. Sam Blonde

    4000+ views yet the Hippo with diarrhoea has millions? What?

  60. Richard Hawley

    "If I could see it all, oh to be lost in a galaxy of distant stars
    Did I see your face? It weighs so much to be alone tonight"

  61. jha77jha77

    Wow this music thank you!

  62. robbravs

  63. Joe Sweeting

    Beautiful song.

  64. Marcusist

    No face could do this song justice anyway..

  65. Enrique Dunaway
