I'm on my way to the new storefront
just on the east side
ten bucks to renew whatever hope you lose first
and then I'm alright

and everyone there defends on their faith
and I can't breathe
I'm as afraid of the things that I'd say
as I am the things inside me

you scare me more than the hard times
I know they're comin' around again
you scare me more than the gray skies
good morning, Mr. Sunshine

well I don't turn my back and I don't turn away
I just sulk in you
if I believed in myself what would all my friends say?
they would see through, they could see through

you scare me more than the hard times
I know they're comin' around again
you scare me more than the gray skies
good morning, Mr. Sunshine

Mr. Sunshine, you're so good to me
I could kill you before I'd let you go
Mr. Sunshine, you're so good to me

well I cry like a baby, you sing like a bird
and it feels like
you know everything that I say
but not a word that I heard
but it's alright, it's alright

you scare me more than the hard times
I know they're comin' around again
you scare me more than the gray skies
good morning, Mr. Sunshine

you scare me more than the hard times
I know they're comin' around again
you scare me more than the gray skies
good morning, Mr. Sunshine

scare me more than...
Mr. Sunshine...
good morning, Mr. Sunshine
I'm alright, I'm alright
I'm alright

    General Commentpaper hearts, my understanding of the song is that when the skies are grey (i.e. life isn't going so hot), you're safe, because things can only get better. But when the sun's out (like, everything's great), you always know that the rain is coming again. You can't trust the good times, because bad ones are coming. You can trust the bad times, because you know that the good will come back eventually.

    My InterpretationI like Zoie's version and that may very well be true, but I guess from my own experience. I have always interrupted the song as the use of anti-depressants.
