The Sun Hasn’t Left by Modest Mouse #Music #Journey

Modest Mouse is a 90s band that broke out with their 2004 album, “Good News for People Who Love Bad News” featuring Float On and my personal favorite, The World At Hand among other hits on an excellent alt rock album.

Their latest album, “The Golden Casket” which came out earlier this year has lots of new hits as they stick to their roots, but also come out with a new sound and some inspirational songs such as Lace Your Shoes, a deep cut about becoming a dad.

The Sun Hasn’t Left is a hopeful song that draws on optimism to focus on what we have rather than everything that is falling apart around us. Yeah, sometimes stuff in this life sucks, and we aren’t guaranteed another day, but why don’t we engage with what we have and live life to the fullest right now. Check on the lyrics to The Sun Hasn’t Left by Modest Mouse below:

Relax your breath, lean into yourself
Here’s what I know is true
Well, the sun hasn’t left
The sea still has depth
The rain’s still wet, try not to forget
We’re not so bereft, so here’s
A bell that still rings true

There’s still something left
There’s still something left for you
You’re not wrong, things are a mess
But there’s still something left
Friendships are just a chain of texts
But there’s much more than this

I don’t know you
You don’t know me
You and I are us, you see
You and I are us, you see

Lean into your breath and
Just help yourself, well here’s
What I know is true
Well there’s more to life than
Online dating sites
Or hell, you pick the vice, I
Know that’s not concise

There’s still so much, so
Much here left for you
‘Cause cactus bloom, trees
Leaf and root
The world is a womb, it
Ain’t just a room
Well, there’s still something left
Something left for you

Not everything is going to
Be the best
But there’s still something left
Despite the endless crush of crests
Well there’s still something else

I don’t know you
You don’t know me
You and I are us, you see
You and I are us, you see

Counting backwards from zero
The winner wastes the time
The winner wastes the time
Counting backwards from zero
The winner wastes the time
The winner wastes the time
Counting backwards from zero
The winner wastes the time
(The winner wastes the time)

I don’t know you
You don’t know me
You and I are us, you see
You and I are us, you see

I don’t know you
You don’t know me
You and I are us you see
You and I are us you see
