Hard Sun
(Eddie Vedder)

When I walk beside her-- I am the better man
When I look to leave her-- I always stagger back again
Once I built an ivory tower, so I could worship from above
And when I climbed down to be set free, she took me in again

There’s a big, a big hard sun
beating on the big people, mmm, in the big hard world

When she comes to greet me-- she is mercy at my feet
When I stay to pillage her-- she just throws it back at me
Once I dug an early grave, to find a better land
She just smiled and laughed at me, and took her blues back again


When I go to cross that river, she is comfort by side
When I try to understand, she just opens up her hands


Once I stood to lose her, when I saw what I had done
Burned down and threw away the hours, of her garden and her sun
So I tried to warn her, I turned to see her weep
40 days and 40 nights, and it's still coming down on me
