Chasing the Sun
Sara Bareilles

It's a really old city

Stuck between the dead and the living

So I thought to myself,

Sitting on a graveyard shelf

As the echo of heartbeats,

From the ground below my feet

Filled a cemetery

In the center of Queens

I started running the maze of

The names and the dates, some

Older than others the skyscrapers, little tombstone brothers

With Manhattan behind her, three million stunning reminders

Built a cemetery

In the center of Queens

You said, remember that life is

Not meant to be wasted

We can always be chasing the sun!

So fill up your lungs and just run

But always be chasing the sun!

So how do you do it,

With just words and just music,

Capture the feeling that my earth is somebody's ceiling

Can I deliver in sound

The weight of the ground

Of a cemetery

In the center of Queens

There's a history through her

Sent to us as a gift from the future

To show us the proof

More than that, it's to dare us to move

And to open our eyes and to learn from the sky

From a cemetery

In the center of Queens

You said, remember that life is

Not meant to be wasted

We can always be chasing the sun!

So fill up your lungs and just run

But always be chasing the sun!

All we can do is try

And live like we're still alive

It's a really old city

Stuck between the dead and the living

So I thought to myself

Sitting on a graveyard shelf

And the gift of my heartbeat sounds like a symphony

Played by a cemetery

in the center of Queens

You said, remember that life is

Not meant to be wasted

We can always be chasing the sun!

So fill up your lungs and just run

But always be chasing the sun!

All we can do is try

And live like we're still alive

All we can do is try

And live like we're still alive
