I trade 'em a smile for a pain pill
I needed a place
Maybe I could feel better but all the while
I can never get you off my mind

I had a chat with the universe
I'll never understand why the good man's cursed
If you're gonna have a heart
Then you gotta be the one to die

Hey yeah, sister sunshine
You've been living in the sky
Are you ever gonna come on down?

Hey yeah, sister sunshine
Show me love

I pray though I've never been a God man
You never know maybe that your smile meant something
I switched back, see if anything is going right

[Incomprehensible] called me a bloody elf
Said you're gonna save one better save yourself
And you'll never know me
Till you find your own piece of light

Hey yeah, sister sunshine
You've been living in the sky
Are you ever gonna come on down?
Oh brother, can you help me?

Hey yeah, sister sunshine
Show me love, love, love
Gonna show me love, love
Love, love

And if you fly away
I won't let you fly away
That's that and nothing more
That's that and only that and nothing more

Hey yeah, sister sunshine
You've been living in the sky
Are you ever gonna come on down?
Oh brother, can you help me?

Hey yeah, sister sunshine
You've been living in the sky
Are you ever gonna come on down?

Say, hey yeah, sister sunshine
You've been living in the sky
Are you ever gonna come on down?
No one ever gonna help me

Hey yeah, sister sunshine
You've been living in the sky
Are you ever gonna come on down?

Hey yeah, sister sunshine
