Song Lyric Sunday – Need the Sun to Break by James Bay

I love discovering new music!  It’s one of my all-time favorite things.  I know James Bay has been around for a few years and I believe I’ve heard at least one of his songs in passing, but I didn’t discover him until this week.  I was watching one of my shows when a commercial came on (I don’t usually watch commercials, but I happened to be watching this particular show live, which is weird for me).  It was a trailer for a new movie coming up (The Space Between Us, which looks pretty great, by the way), and this song was featured.

 

I quickly asked Siri to tell me who it was, but there was too much going on, and the song was only the background.  I rewound it a few times (isn’t technology great?) and finally managed to figured out who it was, with a little help from Siri (I really hate giving her all the credit, since she can be pretty smug sometimes).

I’m in LOVE with this song.  And it was perfect for me this week, because it was just that day that I “need[ed] the sun to break”.  Last week did feel really dark and dreary for me and this song made me realize that sometimes, all we need to do is hold on to those closest to us, and maybe it won’t seem so dark.

I am also in love with James Bay, his voice and his music.  He is definitely a new favorite.  So, I do hope you enjoy!

Need the Sun to Break by James Bay
Written by James Bay and Joel Pott
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

I’m halfway gone, sleepless I’m battle-worn
You’re all I want, so bring me the dawn

I need the sun to break, you’ve woken up my heart
I’m shaking, all my luck could change
Been in the dark for weeks and I’ve realized you’re all I need and
I hope that I’m not too late, I hope I’m not too late

Back of the room, how come my friends already know you?
I feel like a kid, too shy to speak up so I keep it hid
Oh butterflies, you steal my sleep each night

I need the sun to break, you’ve woken up my heart
I’m shaking, all my luck could change
Been in the dark for weeks and I’ve realized you’re all I need and
I hope I’m not too late, and I hope I’m not too late

Oh no

I need the sun to break, you’ve woken up my heart
I’m shaking, all my luck could change
Been in the dark for weeks and I’ve realized you’re all I need
I hope that I’m not too late, and I hope I’m not too late
Oh now yes I hope I’m not too late

  1. I love discovering new music too – and I love your story here as to how you figured out what this one was!

    Sorry to hear you’ve had a gloomy week – but happy to hear maybe you found a bit of music to life you up. I was just commenting to a random stranger in an elevator (because apparently I do that) that I find this time of year the hardest – dead of winter and summer not yet in sight. I know that in two months the end will be coming, but January is tough.

    Thanks for introducing me to another great new song.
