Rising Sun is the first single from the soon to be released debut album by Jane Cameron, The Mercy of the Tide.


Rising Sun

she opens her eyes, the sky’s still dark
holds her breath to feel her beating heart
she drags herself out for her morning run
her driven search to meet the sun.

the money’s always tight it’s never enough
to buy the luxuries and fancy stuff
she’s counting pennies one by one
dreaming always of the sun

the children’s voices they fly like darts
and nestle into her bleeding heart
she never shies from what is done
in her striving to reach the sun

and though the doubts won’t disappear
and the dark is feeding from her tears
her broken parts she can’t repair
still she knows the sun is there

she opens her eyes, the sky’s still dark
feels her breath and her beating heart
she dives out of bed for her morning run
she’s racing out to meet the rising sun

to meet the rising sun
to meet the sun
always the sun

beauty is... tears in laughter, small joys even in the midst of sorrow, a drifting feather, a cold beach, the wind over the ocean, cold fingers on the skin making your heart warm, storm clouds and lightning, rain, the sun through green leaves in the morning, voices singing, the rhythm of a drum, the beat of your heart, the sigh of your breath and moments of pure relaxation...and a ukulele helps. ... more
