Backseat Goodbye – Please Don't Take My Sunshine lyrics

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,
You make me happy when skies are grey.
You'll never know dear, how much I love you,
Please don't take my sunshine away"

It was the way you stayed warm
When the cold hit that summer day
On the coast off the shore of the town where we grew up
Like the time you turned your back on
Your freedom of america
And all the ways you would curse in french slurred foreign tongue
Well I miss your rainy days
And your sad grasp on gravity
Yeah you'd walk on water if it wasn't for your shoes
And I can't say I haven't thought about it
Sailing these seas with our love
Storms will sweep us sadly I don't doubt it
But that's okay, 'cause we've got love
And I say "tomorrow is my savior,
From my failure known as yesterday,
Yeah I'd pain't those grey skies blue if you'd say the word"
But you, you don't ask much
From me and my broken touch
You say "you're just a silly boy there's nothing you can do"
Cast a stone to the water you always drown in
Judge the books you never read by their covers
Damn the skies you try to reach from the tops of mountains
Send the crying kids home for living life right
