“How I Love You Sun” is the first full-length music video from the 2019 album 'Can You Feel It' (released June 7th, 2019)

Written by Jessa Campbell, "How I Love You Sun" bursts with love for our favorite star! The album features foot-tapping sing-a-longs, whimsical storytelling and soaring harmonies that enchant young audiences through weaving the wonders of nature with original folk tunes. Banjo playing moles and singing trees shine a light on the drippy PNW!

lyrics

How I Love You Sun
I have a friend and he runs a little HOT
At 9,941 degrees
And when I ask him to come out and play
He’s 93 million miles away
And if you ask him to let his light shine
8 minutes is all it’ll take
For his light to reach your smiling face Just in time to hear you say

How I love you Sun oh (how I love you)
How I love you Sun oh (how I love you)
How I love you Sun oh 2x

He’s got joy, joy, joy (where) down in his heart
Some call it nuclear fusion
And if you ask me, well, he’s a star There’s no room for confusion

How I love you Sun oh (how I love you)
How I love you Sun oh (how I love you)
How I love you Sun oh 2x

So when there’s a day thats rainy and grey
You just call up my friend
Known as Mr. Golden Sun
My love for you will never end
