I hope you're not a butterfly who's gonna spread it's wings and fly away, yeah-ee-yeah-ah
I hope you're not the moving type who's gonna up and pack and walk away

Bridge to Chorus
I need you to be there
To treat me like you care
I need you to be where
Anywhere I need you
I need you to myself
Not layin' with anyone else
I need you next to me for always

Chorus 1
Could you be my sunshine
(Could you be my sunshiiinnne)
On a cloudy day
(On a cloudy dayyy)
Could you be my yellow
(Could you be my yellooowww)
When I'm feeling grey
(When I'm feeling greyyy)

I hope you're not the type to jump into the car and twist the key goodbye oh-oh-ah-oh
I hope you're not the type that's quick to say goodbye and not give it a chance yeah-yeah-e-yeah

Bridge to Chorus

Chorus 1

Chorus 2
Could you be my river
And help me float away
Could you be my sunshine
On a cloudy day

Instrumental with backing vocals

Chorus 1

Chorus 2
