Sunlight On Her Face
by Remedy Drive

Album: The North Star


Verse 1
Precious girl from the countryside
The only daughter of a farmer's bride
With so much to fear and so much to hide
And she hides
She's resigned it seems and exhausted too
She's got memories of a dream that got lost en route
But her eyes still gleam from across the room
I write a love song for a prostitute

Pre-Chorus
Sunlight, sunlight
On her face, on her face

Chorus
And her hair falls over her shoulder
She's so elegant as she was older
I was there on the day that they sold her
While she went away where they told her
And she prays to You in the Issan rain
She prayed but she never knew Your name
She prayed to You but You never came
She prays still but it still stays the same
Sunlight, sunlight
On her face, on her face
She wants to feel
Sunlight, sunlight
On her face, on her face

Verse 2
Maybe I lost myself in this venture
I can drink more but I can't quench thirst
I can knock on the door but I can't enter
I'm not free anymore if she's indentured
She prayed to You in the Isaan rain
She prayed but she never knew Your name
She prayed to You but You never came
She prays still but it still stays the same

Pre-Chorus
Sunlight, sunlight
On her face, on her face
She wants to feel
Sunlight, sunlight
On her face, on her face

Verse 3
Alabaster perfume on Your feet from her hair
She's the last in the room and the first to care
She held You at the tomb with the dew in the air
Cruel spear in Your side on the hill she was there
On the wall with the spies under pale moon
Hidden there by her side in the back of the room
She's a child and a bride in Sahara dune
She's a daughter of Syria and Cameroon
From the streets of Brazil
To the hills of Thailand
On the bullets strewn fields of Uganda sand
She's maybe fifteen, she's American
She's praying are You listening
So You understand?

Chorus
Sunlight, sunlight
On her face, on her face
She wants to feel
Sunlight, sunlight
On her face, on her face
She wants to feel
Sunlight
On her face, on her face
She wants to feel
Sunlight
On her face, on her face
