Next To The Sun lyrics:

Put me in the clouds
Right under heaven
Next to the sun
The sun
Wanna feel it all
The burn and the lesson
The fall

I heal, I hurt, I drink the earth
To see just how it feels
Chaos, low tides taste like sunshine
In both they feel as real

Tell me what you think about me
Brazen in my duality
Think about it all the time
If I make peace with mine
Tell me what you think about me
Brazen in my duality
Think about it all the time
If I make peace with mine

Put me in the clouds
Right under heaven
Next to the sun
The sun
Wanna feel it all
The burn and the lesson
The fall

Deep down
Feeling all the heat rise to my worst doubts
Making friends with me, show me the way out
Won’t outrun the parts of me that sting

Tell me what you think about me
Brazen in my duality
Think about it all the time
If I make peace with mine
Tell me what you think about me
Brazen in my duality
Think about it all the time
If I make peace with mine

Put me in the clouds
Right under heaven
Next to the sun
The sun
Wanna feel it all
The burn and the lesson
The fall

Kaina official bio:

Kaina Castillo is a first-generation Latina, born and raised in Chicago. The sweet-hearted optimism in her writing aims to connect to and lift the spirit of the listener. Through the mentorship of Chicago natives like The O’My’s, her multidisciplinary work around the city with various organizations, and collaboration with her peers, she found a sound for herself that is gentle yet full of soul and intent.

In 2018, she premiered her single “f*cked up” on Clash Magazine and a 3-track EP entitled 4u that follows up her last EP release, sweet asl. Her work joins company with her features on Saba’s “Care For Me” and subsequent Tiny Desk appearance as well as Sen Morimoto’s “Cannonball!” and The O’My’s “Tomorrow”.

She continues to write songs while playing shows around the country, most recently as a main act at Red Bull Music Festival Presents: Xicago, as well as a direct opener for Kali Uchis at Concord Music Hall and Jamila Woods at House of Vans. Kaina embodies a soft, savory voice that’s sharp enough to remind you of what happens when you get too close to the sun.
