Soon the clouds will cover the sky,
And soon the tears will cloud my eyes,
And when the clouds are gray
I need your smile to take this heartache away
I called your house but got the machine
So I sang songs you used to sing to make me happy
"You are my sunshine, My only sunshine
You make me smile when clouds are gray
And clouds are always gray these days now that you're gone

And now I've locked myself in this closet
With my old friend a bottle of cheap whiskey
I'll drink alone yeah, I'll get real drunk
And I'll forget your face by the morning

Yeah, so you went away
To drink the sunshine, Oh, with that guy
Yeah, you can dust off my heart
But you won't find your fingerprints there
So I'm drinking alone again tonight
Yeah, I'm drinking to keep warm
Yeah, I smoked a pack again tonight
Oh, I'm smoking to smile

(Chorus)

I called you up, but you're at his place
And I'm singing songs you used to sing to me
To make me smile, to make me laugh
To make my heartache stay away
"You are my sunshine, My only sunshine,
You make me smile when clouds are gray,
And it looks like another cloudy day,
And clouds are always gray these days.

(Chorus)

    General CommentIt's somewhat well written, but it seems like a Bright Eye's rip off.

    'And now I've locked myself in this closet
    With my old friend a bottle of cheap whiskey
    I'll drink alone yeah, I'll get real drunk
    And I'll forget your face by the morning'

    That sounds like the closing lines to 'It's Cool We Can Still Be Friends'.

    'So I'm pouring some whiskey, I'm going to get drunk. Yeah, I'm pouring myself some whiskey, I'm going to get real fucking drunk. I'm pouring some whiskey right now, I'm going to get so so drunk, pass out, forget your face, by the time I wake up.'

    General CommentNot only is this a rip off of "It's Cool, We Can Still Be Friends", but it also sound like The Calendar Hung Itself..."

    "I called your house but got the machine
    So I sang songs you used to sing to make me happy
    "You are my sunshine, My only sunshine
    You make me smile when clouds are gray"

    Sounds very much like:

    "And I settled for a telephone
    Sang into your machine:
    "You are my sunshine
    My only sunshine
    You are my sunshine
    My only sunshine," "


    Plagiarism is very fucking original.
