Million Suns

A star in heaven knows my name
I hope to God she feels the same
She's a sentinel of time
It's all too valuable to hide, hide, hide
She takes the pain away

You shine with the light of a million suns
Don't you know that everyone can see you?
Shine with the light of a million suns
Don't you know that everyone can see you shine?

I like walking in the dark
Finding ways to make a mark
And now the clouds begin to part
Pouring moonlight on my heart, heart, heart
She takes the pain away

You shine with the light of a million suns
Don't you know that everyone can see you?
Shine with the light of a million suns
Don't you know that everyone can see you shine?

She takes the pain away...

You shine with the light of a million suns
Don't you know that everyone can see you?
Shine with the light of a million suns
Don't you know that everyone can see you?
Shine with the light of a million suns
Don't you know that everyone can see you?
Shine with the light of a million suns
Don't you know that everyone can see you shine?
Shine...

Something inside is changing...

Quotes:
Dan: Million Suns was triggered from a late and drunken walk on the mile from Andy's flat to mine in Liverpool, the stars above like beacons ancient lit. I said to myself: 'A star in heaven knows my name', and ran home to write it down. The song became about love both for someone and the universe walking at night and aspiring to do something special with your life.

Dan: This song was the first time we'd ever recorded with a producer in a real studio, in July 1998, as a trial to see if we got on with Stephen Street. My feeling is that although it's a nice big song with loads of rockin' balls, there's a hint of our virginal shyness and hesitancy somewhere under the surface, us being in awe of Stephen and all his flashing knobs. The most amazing moment for me was watching those beautiful strings being put on at the end, and the deep woody sound of a real cello.
