Sunshine Song

Life is a story in the air Filled with dream clouds future visions that are not even there She came to me with kisses in a wind I tried not to blush but our tale from there began And she stands there atop that hill Eyes scared to open but wanting to see their fill And she tells me that she loves me but she will never care Telling me to stay close by but knowing I can’t be there So she dreams of things in bloom Her heart’s so big it hurts but for me there isn’t any room I wish she could hear me atop that lonely hill And forget about the twilight and know that I love her still I see her in my darkness when I stand up to sleep Walking in her shadow these longing thoughts dare to slowly creep We share each others outstretched lives But I wonder if she can see our rainbow when there is sunshine in her eyes With her goes out my last hope I’d like to think with her by my side that I could somehow cope Somewhere out here in this mess I’ll see her standing near me in that pinstripe dress And know that someday she’ll come back home (Guitar medley) Somewhere out there she is waiting on a slowly moving train She stands there with apathy while soaking up the rain Tomorrow she’ll be calling me begging to come home But in this sunshine rain she’ll think she’s still alone Winter crept in quickly setting in those final days It was too bright for her to see me she was walking in a daze Gypsum lilac fire burned steely in her bloodshot eyes She had been crying because she found out that even lovers lie It’s hard to admit when I went wrong Probably been wrong before she even came along But beneath it all she still holds a flame for me Even with all that sunshine making it so hard to see I see her forever in a bathing light But something in her shivering told me something just isn’t right Could be it that my baby has lost it all Or is she still tumbling down that lonely fall
