Ain't no sunshine
Gonna take away this rain
Ain't no sunshine
Gonna take away this rain

I should have known you were
Gonna drift away

Ain't no sunshine
Ever gonna take this rain away

All I have's this hard drive
With no space left for a day
See how it becomes something
That we just put away
With this restlessness you can't sustain
And I guess you haven't seen enough
To make you wanna stay

Ain't no sunshine
Gonna take away this rain
Ain't no sunshine
Gonna take away this rain

You're going away now
But I'm not giving up
You're seventeen miles away
But I'm not giving up

Ain't no sunshine
Ever gonna take this rain away
Ain't no sunshine
Gonna take away this rain

    General CommentTwo people who were in love, but for whatever reasons she left. And left him alone and broken. 'All I have's this hard drive With no space left for a day' All he had left was his memories of being with the girl that he loved. Hes depressed about the situation, about not being together when he feels they belong together, he believed they are supposed to be together, and still does believe. And theres not a single thing that will make him accept it or make him stop trying. The distance, what shes said nothing, will make him give up on her, on love. He wont give up and never will

    General CommentIt's kind of based on the true story of Blake Hazard and John Dragonetti (The Submarines) who moved to LA, and broke up. They both wrote a bunch of songs, working out the pain of the split. Months later they got back together and realized that they both had all of these songs, many of which ended up on their first two albums.
