I wrote this song when I was on a road trip through Sweden. I was sleeping in my car and doing what I call a “slow-tour”, when you have equal part holiday and shows. It was the peak of summer and the light was gorgeous; long lasting and gentle. There is so much water in Sweden; so many lakes and beautiful beaches; you feel like you’re on the edge of the world when you’re that far north. Sunrise is a song about escaping and it seemed very fitting to record it in Memphis, with the road trip being such a feature in American literature, music and popular culture.

SUNRISE Lyrics

Come on baby let’s get out of here
See the city fading in the rearview mirror
I got the feeling to drive all night
With the road ahead and you by my side
And all I see is you and me for miles and miles
Wanna fall asleep, wanna listen to you breathing
And wake up slowly when the sun begins to rise

Well I waited for the cloud to clear
It’s been a long, cold winter without you here
Let’s head on out to beach tonight
I wanna hold you in the dying light
By water dancing and black crows threading through the sky
Wanna fall asleep, wanna listen to you breathing
And wake up slowly when the sun begins to rise

And we can fill our souls with the sound of the ocean
And dance in the summer rain
Let chaos become a distant memory
Like traffic beyond the bay

So meet me darling ‘neath the quarter moon
With an old guitar and your favourite tune
You can tell me anything you need
Your bygone days, your distant dreams
For all I see is you and me for miles and miles
Wanna fall asleep, wanna listen to you breathing
And wake up slowly when the sun begins to rise

And we can fill our souls with the sound of the ocean
And dance in the summer rain
Let chaos become a distant memory
Like traffic beyond the bay

So come on baby let’s get out of here
See the city fading in the rearview mirror
I got the feeling to drive all night
With the road ahead and you by my side
And all I see is you and me for miles and miles
Wanna fall asleep, wanna listen to you breathing
And wake up slowly when the sun begins to rise
I wanna fall asleep, wanna listen to you breathing
And wake up slowly when the sun begins to rise
