"Sunshine" as written by Bill Withers and Raouf Yossef....
"Everybody used to think of him as..
well more like a bum, sort of, a musical bum..
than anything else"

[singing]
Your love, is my sanity
Your love, brings me sunshine
I like what you do to me
I like what you give to me
I wander through this world
Needing you so much
I wander through this world
Dreaming of your touch

[both]
If I could see you again..
If I could just see you again..

Forget about your sorrows
Forget about your heartache
Life is nothing but a shadow
("Ooooh-weeee man!"}
Forget about your worries
Forget about the bad times
Life is nothing but a shadow..
("Ooooh-weeee man!"} ..without your sunshine

[Father Guido Sarducci]
Everybody's been wondering where you been
And, now that we know what happened
We're all wondering where you are
And even though we feel bad we won't be seein you around anymore
We want you to know we feel better, we won't have to worry anymore

[singing]
There's a new star, in the night sky
Could it be you, making me so high
Shine on, shine on, shine on, shine on
Shine on and on and on and on and on..

[both]
If I could see you again..
If I could just see you again..

Forget about your sorrows
Forget about your heartache
Life is nothing but a shadow
("Ooooh-weeee man!"}
Forget about your worries
Forget about the bad times
Life is nothing but a shadow..
("Ooooh-weeee man!"} ..without your sunshine

[Father Guido Sarducci]
We know your only worry now is,
You worrying about us worrying about you
And even though we stopped worrying,
It doesn't we're not still sad
And we're happy to let you know that, we always will be

[Sean Lennon]
I used to think time, was on my side
I used to think the world, could be so kind
That was another day..
That was another time..

[both]
If I could see you again..
If I could just see you again..

Forget about your sorrows
Forget about your heartache
Life is nothing but a shadow
("Ooooh-weeee man!"}
Forget about your worries
Forget about the bad times
Life is nothing but a shadow..
("Ooooh-weeee man!"} ..without your sunshine

    General CommentThis song is so cool! I've always loved it. The contrasting vocal styles, the laidback, funky groove and pretty melody.

    As for the meaning, it actually seems to be about a troubled, eccentric drifter who suddenly disappeared, leaving all of his friends behind to wonder what happened to him. He has cut off all ties with his former associates for some reason. He may be in rehab or something, but at times it almost sounds like he's dead! Anyway, he discovered something or someone to live for and is pursuing that "sunshine."

    But somehow, this song also makes me chuckle.
