Grizzly Bear - Sun In Your Eyes Lyrics




You've fallen once you'll fall again
And lean on
Your tired hands that crawl and grasp
The soft ground
By the look on your face
You set out on a path
Never to arrive
By the look on your face
The burden's on your back
And the sun is in your eyes

Stretched out far and wide
The light that scorched the sand
So bright so long
I'm never coming back

And every stone and every step
I won't recall
Emptied out of every thought
Just soft ground
By the look on your face
The burden's on your back
And the sun is in your eyes

Gone at last
Stretched out
Far and wide
The light that scorched the sand
So bright so long
I'm never coming back

It overflows
It overflows
It always runs
It overflows
It overflows
It always runs
Silver and silent
Endless abundance overflows

Silver and silent rushing on
Endless abundance overflows
Always surrounds you always glows
Look on your face
Burden's on your back
Sun is in your eyes

Stretched out
Far and wide
The light that scorched the sand
So bright so long
I'm never coming back

Grizzly Bear Sun In Your Eyes Comments
  1. Charlie

    The only time i saw Grizzly Bear was in 2013, at that time I could hear this absolutely gorgeous song live... After that they never came back to Buenos Aires. I Hope they come back someday 🥺🇦🇷🇦🇷

  2. Andrew Frank

    Chris Bear has to be the most underrated drummer of all time, dude kills it

  3. Fashfrog 14

    Good sodomites.

  4. misska

    this song makes me broke my heart...again

  5. Thlex

    Chris bear-most under rated drummer of the 21st century

  6. Thlex

    Legends

  7. jergisen

    this is like the best video on youtube

  8. jergisen

    Addictive.

  9. Liam Sweeney

    Christopher Bear is a great drummer but I feel like he's overplaying and he can't keep up with himself during the choruses here and he's not using his dynamics. Needs to step back a bit and let the song do it's thing and play things he can actually play without going out of time.

  10. toli galiano

    crosby stills vibes with their own character.

  11. Charlie

    Love this band so much

  12. Alieral

    I have been in recovery for 4 years. I have been dating a guy for 3.5 years but I just broke up with my him because he cannot stay sober, I am not mad at him I get it I struggled for years. This song however sums up the entire situation. "You've fallen once, you'll fall again, and lean on, your tired hands that crawl and grasp, the soft ground, by the look on your face, you set out on a path, never to arrive, by the look on your face, the burden's on your back" I hope he gets sober for himself, but I can't keep holding on. "The look on your face, burden's on your back, sun is in your eyes, stretched out, far and wide, the light that scorched the sand, so bright, so long, I'm never coming back, So bright, so long, I'm never coming back"

  13. Juan Ignacio Zapata

    Does anyone knows what cymbals is Chris using?

  14. Paul Brighton

    Back in the day we called this progressive rock. This is on par with Genesis, Rush, Yes. Genius.

  15. FuazzyMoto

    The most underappreciated band ever.

    orion3511

    They Really Really are. They created their own genre almost.
    Criminally underrated. The best band of the last 20 years in my opinion. And this Masterpiece has just 83k views and in a time of Nothing but shit. I don't understand it, we'll I do but.... :-/

  16. Parkman8

    Having a beer in Pontiac Michigan and I hear this song for the first time. What an unbelievable song!

  17. Madou Ximena Gyalaxi

    I heard this song in a documentary about Snowboarding 🏂. Gives me the chills 🌺💚. Took me so long to find it.

    Andrew Frank

    What documentary? Feel like this song would be sick to some snowboarding footage. I'd love to see it

    zach watson

    Andrew Frank it’s called the Crash Reel about Kevin Pearce’s accident. Fantastic Doc

  18. D G

    Reminds me of Radiohead which I know that Grizzly Bear is the American Radiohead .. they are becoming my favorite band

    TyphoidBryan

    I saw Radiohead in 2008 and Grizzly Bear opened for them. :)

    Jennifer Lima

    DR G, noooooo! They are so much better than Radiohead, and they don't have a lead vocalist with a little man complex like Thom Yorke.

  19. TaMara Garcia

    Just saw them perform this in San Francisco at the Warfield. This is one of their best songs!
    So awesome :))))))

  20. Mark Cornelius

    Wow! What a performance!

  21. Jon Polm

    literally flawless performances. those vocals....ughhhh. amazing

  22. Kelly

    Dreamed about seeing this song live since I first heard it in 2012. Saw it last Saturday when it was the closing encore at their Dallas show. Such a dream, so powerful

  23. Jodi Molloy

    I was there and will be again next year.

    You've fallen once, you'll fall again
    And lean on
    Your tired hands that crawl and grasp
    The soft ground
    By the look on your face
    You set out on a path
    Never to arrive
    By the look on your face
    The burden's on your back
    And the sun is in your eyesStretched out, far and wide
    The light that scorched the sand
    So bright, so long
    I'm never coming backAnd every stone and every step
    I won't recall
    Emptied out of every thought
    Just soft ground
    By the look on your face
    The burden's on your back
    And the sun in your eyesGone at last
    Stretched out, far and wide
    The light that scorched the sand
    So bright, so long
    I'm never coming backIt overflows, it overflows, it always runs
    It overflows, it overflows, it always runs
    Silver and silent
    Endless abundance overflowsSilver and silent rushing on
    Endless abundance overflows
    Always surround you, always glows
    OhLook on your face,
    Burden's on your back
    Sun is in your eyesStretched out, far and wide
    The light that scorched the sand
    So bright, so long
    I'm never coming back
    So bright, so long
    I'm never coming back

    You've fallen once you'll fall again
    And lean on
    Your tired hands that crawl and grasp
    The soft ground
    By the look on your face
    You set out on a path
    Never to arrive
    By the look on your face
    The burden's on your back
    And the sun is in your eyes

    I'm never coming back

  26. Charles Walsh

    my favorite song on shields.. the prog gods are smiling.

  27. William Adele

    This song, especially this performance, makes me stop what im doing and just listen. This is real music if it makes you feel something. Thank you grizzly bear!

  28. Vanessa Corante

    Daniel Rossen freakin' KILLS IT. Seeing them live was like being on the best ecstasy.. best band on earth without a doubt.

    stepsinred

    Vanessa Corante I saw on them tour for veckatimest in New York and shields in Miami. You could tell Chris Bear loves playing half-gate; he was going mad! They were amazing both times. Can't wait to catch them tour their upcoming album in a new city.

    Vanessa Corante

    stepsinred I know, I've been waiting for them to come back to the east coast! I saw Shields in PA and it was incredible. I would love to see them in a bigger venue playing this song. It would probably melt my skin off and turn my eyes to raisins.

    LilRyan732

    I just saw them in DC. it is so surreal live, they are masters of sound levels and how their music "comes off" in a room. They ended their set with this song. I turned to my friends and said "This is their Pink Floyd song" they didn't know what I was talking about. As soon as that middle section comes about and they go DEAD SILENT i looked over and saw the smiles on my friends' faces. They are easily a top 5 live band for me

  29. Sara Pinheiro

    amooooooooo demais!

    Juca Kajuru

    Sara Pinheiro I also love <3

    Necro Orcen

    He's so creative gdamnit. He's got a child like imagination when it comes to how many different ways you approach a section, never seems to run out
