Don't Bite the Sun (filk) [Jan. 20th, 2016|10:32 pm]

A while back, the Swedish TV show Så mycket bättre sent an episode centered on Jenny Berggren of Ace of Base. One of the songs that were re-worked there was The Sign, and it made me really listen to the lyrics of the song. Then I heard the phrase "Don't bite the sun", matching the rhythm of the song. Indeed, I found the song's theme and mood fits Tanith Lee's story very well.

For anyone interested in doing this one, I believe Lisa Nilsson's mostly acoustic version (in Swedish) can be a good alternative approach to the song's melody.


Living in Four-BEE
My friend Hergal had killed himself again
How could a person like me care for you
Why do I stay here
When this place is not for me
Oooo, is this not my place?

Don't bite the sun but I open up my eyes don't bite the sun
Life is unchanging here where I am standing
Don't bite the sun but I open up my eyes don't bite the sun
No one's gonna drag me up to get into the light where I belong
But where do I belong?

Under the pale moon
For so many years I've wondered who we are
How can a person like me find my joy
Under the pale moon
Where I see a lot of stars
Oooo, is this now the place?

Don't bite the sun I have opened up my eyes don't bite the sun
Life is unchanging here where I am standing
Don't bite the sun I have opened up my eyes don't bite the sun
No one's gonna drag me up to get into the light where I belong
But where do I belong?

Oh, oh, oh, oh.

Don't bite the sun I have opened up my mind
And I am happy now living outside it
I've left Four-BEE
Don't bite the sun I have opened up my eyes don't bite the sun
No one's gonna drag me up to get into the light where I belong

Don't bite the sun - don't bite the sun - don't bite the sun
Don't bite the sun - don't bite the sun
Don't bite the sun - don't bite the sun - don't bite the sun
I have opened up my eyes don't bite the sun
