"Sunshine" as written by and Mac Davis....
To all the boys and girls outside
You know I didn't cry
But you saw me anyway
In the back of the creek one day
And if you're trying to get a ride
On a roller skate or a bike
Just ask me and I'll take you round
The block and back this way again
To all the boys and girls outside
Why don't you come and fly with me
I'll show you why I ran away
The other day from my mom and dad
All the boys and the girls outside
I know you got crazy things inside
And that's why I got this show you how
I do the things I do best
I like to roller skate and bike
That's why I've got crazy style
I go so fast around the block
And as I do so I sing this song to you

Sunshine, oh sunshine
If you don't know why you shine
You've got to go into the sun
You've got to go inside

    General CommentI love this song... it's like a bittersweet childhood flashback. Loneliness and longing for friendship even if it's only based on one's possessions- I remember that well!

    Although Mac Davis does have a song called Sunshine, this is not it. The credit given to him up there is mistaken, I'm pretty sure.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of Boo Radley from To Kill A Mockingbird... not completely sure why, or it reminds me of a pedophile... just thinking, don't bash me! :)

    General CommentI know that when Sierra was a teen she moved around a lot... both girls did respectively, maybe it's a simple ode to constant alienation from significant friendships or any relationships with others during their earlier years.
    I dunno, just a thought.
    B-e-a-utiful song though, it makes me happy and sad at the same time :)

    General CommentNobody comments on this song? This is one of the only songs on Ghosthorse that I found completely palatable. It's really hauntingly simple. I love the vocal melody. It's really exceptional.
