about

Sun Bear was completed more than a year ago but never released.
A song about adventure, bravery, growing, and living forever all in the metaphor of a story.

Special appreciation to Tyler Eichner and Brandon Bonnor for their vocals and creativity alongside in this song.

lyrics

We grew up in lonely houses,
made up in the mountains
always getting lost
You saw beauty in the bear's paw,
searched out where they all withdraw,
somewhere by the river
And your bravery,
is something I don't see everyday, everyday
You made a song,
asked me to sing along
Sang with the earth
Soil in the north
and it went...

"Sunshine, I was made for you
You were made for me,
But you live more free
Forever, we were meant forever,
We will go where ever,
Even in the sea"

I loved every minute singing,
felt like I was flying,
Never to touch the ground
You convinced me to find,
all I've left behind
and bring it on the hike
We searched all day and night,
looking for the light of the Sun Bear
Sundown,
miles from the closest town,
through the leaves, the vandyke brown
the beast has made his sound [rawr]
Eventually,
We both said our plights,
never to ignite these words
to any soul...

and we sang,
"Sunshine, I was made for you
You were made for me,
But you live more free
Oh, forever, we were meant forever,
We will go where ever,
Even in the sea"

and we sang,
"Sunshine, I was made for you
You were made for me,
But you live more free
Forever, we were meant forever,
We will go where ever,
Even in the sea"

You saw beauty in the bear's paw
