You are my sunshine

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.

_

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping,

I dreamt I held you in my arms

when I awoke dear, I was mistaken

And I hung, my head, and cried.

_

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,

I wish the words would come to me

but every time dear, I see this mountain,

I can't help, but turn and run away.

_

As I was writhing, in deepest darkness,

When my thoughts did not make sense

I looked and saw you, upon a photo

in my head, and then, I smiled.

_

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,

I wish I had the strength to fight

This demon off dear, but I am frightened

You have a face, that looks, like mine.

_

When I am struggling, in fog of nonsense,

And I am forced to make a play

I find I'm lost dear, and then ashamed dear

I must turn, my head, away.

_

When I am thinking, in lonely moments,

and you creep into my thoughts,

You try to hold me and I attack you,

you are a snake and we both know.

_

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.
