This is one of my favorite songs because it has to do with the summer nights that I live for. The song is self-explanatory. The one part if the song sticks out in my mind..."Till your amber beads of wisdom come And I want to write it down Just the way you said it So I could keep it always I can't forget the smell Of summer trees at midnight Bending backwards to please the wind You touch the tattoo of the sun On a warm Belly That once Carried a baby for a while Then let that crackled leather jacket Round you fold Red face saints Monogrammed in gold And in this beauty I would not go Any further Cuz I Suddenly remembered We can't live this way forever."

In that mouth full I think he is trying to say that he wants to keep her words with him always even if she cant be.

"Idle daylight I've never caught you in a lie Not until now I feel somehow The passing of these days gone by What will you do when the feeling That you have is through I need to know Cuz I'll never stop hanging on to you And it's times like this that I dread When there's everything to say And nothing left To be said And it makes me sad."

He caught her lying to him and now he knows he has to let go some time, but no matter what he will never stop loving her. Their is noting left for him to say but that he now that she lied and it makes him sad.

i love the song tattoo of the sun[i love all of third eye binds songs but hey...] because of the way the guitar and drums sound, it helps you[or me at least] to totally see the sun setting. also in the lyrics " it's times like these that i dread, when theres everything to said and nothing left to be said". when your in a fight with a friend and theres so much you need to talk about but there's like an uneasy scilience that neither of you wanna break, i don't know if you follow but hopefuly u get what i'm saying. also there's that little voice in the song that says the words before Jenkins sings them. i imagian that as a piolit flying a plane and he's go headsets on and there's a radio voice that's telling him what comes next and where to fly. and one last thing, the part that goes " i suddenly rember we can't live this way forever" is basically say, things change wether u like it or not and it's life. thankx, hope you all sorta understood what i was trying to say.l8r!!

I am a HUGE Third Eye Blind fan. Stephan is a great musician and poet. I think in the song, " Tattoo of the Sun," instead of saying, "Now I could speak to everything," I think it's ," Your the one I speak to of everything." It makes sense at least and when you put it in the song, it makes sense as well. Either way is fine with me. All I have to say is, Third Eye Blind is #1 and "Guys" get that cd moving quicker, the anxiety is killing me.

I just wanted to say that this song so much reminds me of the movie "Here on Earth" I saw this movie and then came home and was listening to my cd's and this song came on. It is a lot like the movie.

Tattoo of the Sun

I believe everything you say
'Cause your not frightened
The way I've been so
So I follow you
Just in case you lose your way
So glad you let me stay around
The chain link fence you climbed
To make forbidden lakes our own
Yours and mine
And with ease of the sea gulls
We cut the engines and cruise high
In the summer sky
Now I could speak to everything
But there's no room for my voice
When sweet feed back is
Jumping through the hoop of your ear
Ring there goes the phone
And then you're off again
On what the caller brings
So I went and trashed myself at the bar
Confused for nothing
Thinking you'd be there
I'm so embarrassed
Cuz it's you
Who comes to take care of me
Shambling home again
With you to lead
And it's not the way
I want to go
And I'm mad at you and I'm mad at me
Talking endlessly,
Not a kind word to say
Till your amber beads of wisdom come
And I want to write it down
Just the way you said it
So I could keep it always
I can't forget the smell
Of summer trees at midnight
Bending backwards to please the wind
You touch the tattoo of the sun
On a warm
Belly
That once
Carried a baby for a while
Then let that crackled leather jacket
Round you fold
Red face saints
Monogrammed in gold
And in this beauty
I would not go
Any further
Cuz I
Suddenly remembered
We can't live this way forever
Idle daylight
I've never caught you in a lie
Not until now
I feel somehow
The passing of these days gone by
What will you do when the feeling
That you have is through
I need to know
Cuz I'll never stop hanging on to you
And it's times like this that I dread
When there's everything to say
And nothing left
To be said
And it makes me sad
