In Their Words: “‘Staring at the Sun’ is one of those songs that began on the late-night, slow-tempo songwriting couch, and the band turned it into something fit for the public. With these lyrics, I’m telling everyone to remind me not to go down that same road again when I know damn well I’ll do it anyway. These songs make me look at my life over and over, as I work them out with the band, try them out on stage, and record take after take in the studio. Then perform them fully fledged, sometimes right in front of the people who inspired them. It’s like each time the experience loses some of its charge, as I embody how I got there in the first place. People tell me these songs are relatable, so they’re not selfishly just for me, which makes them worth writing.” — Sarah Lee Langford
