Words & Music by Bill Magill

lyrics

stand and stare up at the sun
take its full embrace
stare up at the sun
let it wash upon your face
you know that isn't wise
but you can't look away
just stare up at the sun
even though you know you'll pay

it leaves me paralyzed
I can't look away
I hold my hands up to my eyes
but I'm blind and it's too late
it leaves me powerless
from the brilliant blazing high
the way she moves that summer dress
it leaves me paralyzed

you’re an educated man
with a firm belief in god
a warm and loving family
and you know your rights and your wrongs
you know what you should do
there's nothing left to say
there's no argument at all
it's as clear as night and day

tonight you'll hold her and you'll dance
mariachis play
kneel to smell her skin
feel her body sway
your head spins round and round
you struggle with a way
to say mi corazón, mi corazón
mi corazón mi pay

it leaves me paralyzed
I can't look away
I hold my hands up to my eyes
but I'm blind and it's too late
It leaves me powerless
from the brilliant blazing high
the way she moves that summer dress
it leaves me paralyzed
