Eddie Vedder – Hard Sun

Into The Wild is the first solo studio album by Pearl Jam vocalist Eddie Vedder based on his contributions to the soundtrack for the film Into the Wild.  Hard Sun was originally written by Gordon Peterson who performed under the name of Indio on the 1989 album, Big Harvest. The song simply means that life itself is hard, we live in a big world with a big hard sun, but if we have someone to walk with us, someone who cares and understands us, its that much easier..

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
and when I climbed down to be set free
she took me in again

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

when she comes to greet me
she is mercy at my feet
when I see her pin her charm
she just throws it back at me
once I sought an early grave
to find a better land
she just smiled and laughed at me
and took her blues back again

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

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

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

once I stood to lose her
when I saw what I had done
bound down and flew away the hours
of her garden and her sun
so I tried to warn her
i’ll turn to see her weep
40 days and 40 nights
and it’s still coming down on me

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world

there’s a big
a big hard sun
beaten on the big people
in the big hard world
