"The Warmth Of The Sun" as written by Brian Douglas Wilson and Mike E. Love....
What good is the dawn
That grows into day
The sunset at night
Or living this way

For I have the warmth of the sun
(Warmth of the sun)
Within me at night
(Within me at night)

The love of my life
She left me one day
I cried when she said
"I don't feel the same way"

Still I have the warmth of the sun
(Warmth of the sun)
Within me tonight
(Within me tonight)

I'll dreams of her arms
And though they're not real
Just like she's still there
The way that I feel

My love's like the warmth of the sun
(Warmth of the sun)
It won't ever die
(It won't ever die)

    General Commenti'm not seeing it in the lyrics, but my mom told me this song is about JFK.

    General CommentThis song was apparently written a few hours after JFK's assassination. Brian was feeling very warm and, though the news filtered in and millions around the world were in mourning, Brian saw it as a positive statement that people could glean from.

    General CommentBobo, as McMahon used to say to Carson on the Tonight Show, "You are correct, sir!" The only thing I would add is that the much-maligned Mike Love contributed greatly to the lyric, if not writing the majority of it. This is arguably the single most beautiful melody that Brian Wilson ever wrote.

    General CommentQuite arguable. I love this song, but I think I have to stick with Don't Worry Baby.

    General CommentThis song is a beautiful piece of music, and is totally underrated. It is a relaxing song, with the sound of a lullaby
