“Time has a way you know”

March 19, 2013


Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

It’s not warm when she’s away

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

She’s always gone too long anytime she goes away

Wonder this time where’s she’s gone

Wonder if she’s gone to stay

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

And this house just ain’t no home

Anytime she goes away

And I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know

Hey, I oughtta leave young thing alone

But ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

Only darkness every day.

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

And this house just ain’t no home

Anytime she goes away.

Anytime she goes away.

Anytime she goes away.

Anytime she goes away.

But what is sunshine, anyway? Just a fire in the sky slowly burning us to our deaths.
