"Sick of the Sun" is a song by Poppy from her third studio album I Disagree. It is the ninth track on the album.

Background

On November 26th, 2019, Poppy revealed the title along with the tracklist to I Disagree on Instagram.

Theme

In a 2020 interview with Apple Music, Poppy stated that the song is "quite literally, about waiting to stay away from the sun" and is also "a touch of agoraphobia and avoiding people".[1] The bridge references how many people with depression are often told that it is temporary and that "it gets better" even though it may not feel like it is. The following track, "Don't Go Outside", is a continuation of the themes in this song, showing a progression from depression to contentment.

Lyrics

[Chorus]
I'm sick of the sun
It burns everyone
I want it to go away
I just wanna float away
I'm sick of the sun
Can't trust anyone
I want it to go away
I just wanna float away

[Verse]
Can someone turn the lights down?
Yeah, someone shut the lights out
I close my eyes 'cause it's too bright
Someone turn the lights out, oh
I need to find the right sound
Something I can say that I found
Yeah, I can hear it in my mind
I need to find the right sound, oh

[Chorus]
I'm sick of the sun
It burns everyone
I want it to go away
I just wanna float away
I'm sick of the sun
Can't trust anyone
I want it to go away
I just wanna float away

[Bridge]
Everyone told me that it would get better
But every day feels exactly the same

[Chorus]
I'm sick of the sun
It burns everyone
I want it to go away
I just wanna float away
I'm sick of the sun
Can't trust anyone
I want it to go away
I just wanna float away
I'm sick of the sun
