Synopsis:

Everyone has those days/periods in their lives where it doesn’t matter what they do, they’re going to have a bad day (i.e. career, relationships, family, friends, any obstacles or roadblocks in life).

The lyrics are about perseverance, the power of positivity, inner strength, having faith and finding solace in the little things to stay positive until things look brighter again.

The message: the Sun does shine… just wait for it.


In a field of trees and flowers,

Cloudy weather shades their lives
The seeds of tomorrow hidden beneath
Like the pains of a farmer’s strife

You put your heart and sweat in it
You did what you believed was true
After long nights of hard labor however,
Nothing you sowed came through

The Sun doesn’t shine,
The Sun doesn’t shine,
You tell yourself,
“The Sun doesn’t shine”

But waiting out the rain,
There’s a beacon of light
Over the horizon
Have faith, be patient with time

The garden once blossomed,
Turbulence now runs its course
Soiled by angst, sorrow and luck,
Thinking nothing could get worse

But as the eye of the storm sets in
And just before you say your goodbyes,
You suddenly find bliss in counting
Each falling raindrop from the sky

The Sun doesn’t shine,
The Sun doesn’t shine,
You tell yourself,
“The Sun doesn’t shine”

But waiting out the rain,
There’s a beacon of light
Over the horizon
Have faith, be patient with time

Oh, the Sun doesn’t shine,
The Sun doesn’t shine,
You keep telling yourself,
That “the Sun doesn’t shine”

But waiting out the rain,
There’s a beacon of light
Over the horizon
Have faith, be patient with time

When you think it’s finally over
There’s the Dust Bowl of despair
You’re feeling vulnerably exposed
As if you can’t persevere

But when the rays come shining through
Amidst of all your fears
It’s because of your inner strength calling,
“What’s left?”, “Not now, not here!”

The Sun doesn’t shine,
The Sun doesn’t shine,
You tell yourself,
“The Sun doesn’t shine”

But waiting out the rain,
There’s a beacon of light
Over the horizon
Have faith, be patient with time

Oh, the Sun doesn’t shine,
The Sun doesn’t shine,
You keep telling yourself,
That “the Sun doesn’t shine”

But waiting out the rain,
There’s a beacon of light
Over the horizon
Have faith, be patient with time

Oh, you keep waiting,
You keep waiting,
You keep waiting
When the Sun doesn’t shine

But when the Sun does shine
There’s a beacon of light
And the days will be brighter
So have faith, be patient with time

The days will be brighter,
Have faith, be patient with time

Oh, the days will be brighter,
When you have faith and be patient with time.
