Sunshine on My Back

This song is by The National, features Sharon Van Etten and appears on the single Sunshine on My Back (2015).

Original video
Tina lies on the ground
She lies there forever
She likes the sound
Tina knows the devil

Tina loves the violence
Of living in the country
She likes that it's
So far from me

Tina has her story down
I really thought I knew it
Then it changed around
When I was almost through it

Sunshine on my back
Is the only kind I lack
Sunshine in my brain
Is the lonely kind of pain
It's the sunshine
Of a lonely mind

She says "After today then there's nothing you owe me
And I'm so glad that you came, I needed someone who loves me
But just don't try to talk yourself into this love
And sleep like a baby while I'm staying up
It's as much what you say as it is what you don't
You can't try to stay, you either will or you won't"

Sunshine on my back
Is the only kind I lack
Sunshine in my brain
Is the lonely kind of pain
It's the sunshine
Of a lonely mind
