In The Sun

If you’ve been watching The Bourne Identity on Encore, or have the DVD, and you want to know the song that plays in the alternate ending, it’s “In the Sun” by Joseph Arthur, from his album Come To Where I’m From. Thanks to a poster on the Amazon page for the movie’s soundtrack.
I really like this song; it’s almost a lullaby in some respects, and I found myself singing it to the little one night before last:
I picture you in the sun wondering what went wrong
And falling down on your knees asking for sympathy
And being caught in between all you wish for and all you seen
And trying to find anything you can feel that you can believe in
May God’s love be with you
Always
May God’s love be with you
I know I would apologize if I could see your eyes
Cause when you showed me myself I became someone else
But I was caught in between all you wish for and all you need
I picture you fast asleep
A nightmare comes
You can’t keep awake
May God’s love be with you
Always
May God’s love be with you
Cause if I find
If I find my own way
How much will I find
If I find
If I find my own way
How much will I find
You
I don’t know anymore what it’s for
I’m not even sure if there is anyone who is in the sun
Will you help me to understand
Cause I been caught in between all I wish for and all I need
Maybe you’re not even sure what it’s for
Any more than me
May God’s love be with you
Always
May God’s love be with you

  5. Ironically, I’ve heard this song first on mysticradio.com but sung not by Joseph Arthur but by Donna De Lory and instantly found it enchanting. The difference between the two is quite striking.
