I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine
I got a love and I know that it's all mine, oh, oh oh oh
Do what you want but you're never gonna break me
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me, oh, oh oh oh

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine
I got a love and I know that it's all mine, oh, oh oh oh
Wish that you could but you ain't gonna own me
Do anything you can to control me
Oh, oh oh oh

Take me away, a secret place
A sweet escape, take me away
Take me away to better days
Take me away, a hiding place

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine
I got a love and I know that it's all mine, oh, oh oh oh
Do what you want but you're never gonna break me
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me, oh, oh oh oh

Take me away, a secret place
A sweet escape, take me away
Take me away to better days
Take me away, a hiding place

There's a place that I go that nobody knows
Where the rivers flow and I call it home
And there's no more lies in the darkness there's light
And nobody cries, there's only butterflies

Take
me away, a secret place
A sweet escape, take me away
Take me away to better days
Take me away, a hiding place

Take me away, a secret place
A sweet escape, take me away
Take me away to better days
Take me away, a hiding place

The sun is on my side and takes me for a ride
I smile up to the sky, I know I'll be alright
The sun is on my side and takes me for a ride
I smile up to the sky, I know I'll be alright

    this song rocks. i love it. i was watching the radio disney top ten, and they played the chorus, so i thought i'd listen to it. i listened to it, and i love it. i know the whole song. I also saw her perform it on americal idol. it was so awesome. natasha rocks. this song means she has joy and happiness, and she's in her own worl filled with it. she just wants to float wawy. and when she reaches her happy place, no one can take thay place, or feel away from her. keep on rocking natasha.

    It's about having a positive attitude toward life despite hardship. The "love" could be anything- a secret love, love of life. God etc. While wishing to go back to better days, needing a hiding place etc suggest day to day hardship, she has love/sunshine which equal personal knowledge of something greater than herself - a faith/hope that things will improve.

    This song is about having that escape. Something that only you can take pleasure in. Whether it's a boyfriend/girlfriend, music, art, whatever, it's just yours. Whenever you feel like live ain't treating you right, you go to that something and forget it all. It's all yours and you know it'll always be there.

    Personally my pocket full of sunshine is little band that goes by the name of;
    LINKIN PARK (:
