Songs That I Love #38 Eddie Vedder - Hard Sun

I was very late to the party when it came to the music of Pearl Jam, as in truth I had never really embraced Grunge as a genre I would be interested in. When I did discover them I devoured them with a passion, so much so I decided to watch this film (Into The Wild) solely because Eddie Vedder had written the sound track. The film turned out to be one of my favourite films and I recommend anybody that hasn't seen it to go watch it.

I have to say when this song starts playing in the film I always smile, its a beautiful song for a beautiful film.

When I walk beside her
I am the better man
When I look to leave her
I always stagger back again

Once I built an ivory tower
So I could worship from above
When I climb down to be set free
She took me in again

There's a big
A big hard sun
Beating on the big people
In the big hard world

When she comes to greet me
She is mercy at my feet
I see her inner charm
She just throws it back at me

Once I dug an early grave
To find a better land
She just smiled and laughed at me
And took her rules back again


When I go to cross that river
She is comfort by my side
When I try to understand
She just opens up her hands


Once I stood to lose her
And I saw what I had done
Bowed down and threw away the hours
Of her garden and her sun

So I tried to want her
I turned to see her weep
40 days and 40 nights
And it's still coming down on me
