I stumbled upon this video, had never heard the song, and found the words that follow.

 

The Sun Always Shines on TV

inside my heart
rain falls, insipid downpours
drowning my soul
floodwaters unrestrained
emotions unhinged

but momma repeatedly said
“The sun always shines on TV.”

inside my head
nightmares rule my self-conscious sleep
unwavering demons loathe the passage of time
knowing with morning’s light I’ll rise
putting them to rest

but momma repeatedly said
“The sun always shines on TV.”

inside my casket
the rain has stopped
the river runs dry
the demons are silent
time has ceased to be
and it is dark.

But momma repeatedly said
“The sun always shines on TV.”

we pulled the plug too soon.

*An interesting side note: This morning I turned on the 24hr music channel on the tv and this song was the first one played. 🙂
