"Sunshine" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
It's a new day
It's a bright day
Even when you stand in the dark
It's just that
You've been broken into fifty pieces
Today is gone
I'm the only light that you see
You need someone
I know all you needed was me

Everyday we wake if it takes too long
Just tell me something new
Forget about the sunshine when it's gone

Another pale moon
Shines like high noon
Midnight never felt so cold alone
It's just that you're uneasy
When you need me
Today is gone
I'm the only light that you see
You need someone
I know all you needed was me

Everyday we wake if it takes too long
Just tell me something new
Forget about the sunshine when it's gone
You can say it's right, but it feels so wrong
Just show me something true
Forget about the sunshine
Forget about the sunshine when it's gone

Today is gone
I'm the only light that you see
You need someone
I know all you needed was me

Everyday we wake if it takes too long
Just tell me something new
Forget about the sunshine when it's gone
You can think it's right, but it feels so wrong
Just show me something true
Forget about the sunshine
Forget about the sunshine when it's gone

Everyday we wake if it takes too long
Just tell me something new
Forget about the sunshine when it's gone
You can think it's right, but it feels so wrong
Just show me something true
Forget about the sunshine
Forget about the sunshine when it's gone

    General CommentFor me, this song is about being somebody's Light in all of their darkness.
    "It's a new day, it's a bright day even when you stand in the dark" - even while things around the person are bad, the world is bright and sunny
    "I'm the only light that you see (You need someone), I know all you needed was me" - he is the only one there for this person

    Song MeaningI think this song is actually about a girl who was seeing someone other than the singer and they broke up. Now she is struggling because while she knows she likes the singer, her ex (the sunshine) is in her mind. She's been broken into 50 pieces by him and she can't forget him (Think it's right when it feels so wrong) even though they didn't work out so he's telling her to forget about her sunshine when he's gone.

    The day is gone
    Yeah, I'm the only light that you see
    (You need someone)
    I know all you needed was me

    This is where it's most clear. The day (her boyfriend) is gone. I'm (the singer) the only light that you see (the only boy, the only hope, the only truth, the only love). You need someone (you need love and you need to fill the hole left by the ex). I know all you needed was me (I love you, I'm ready to be all that you needed from him that he didn't give you).

    My OpinionI think it means forget about the stupid shit in life and just love. When good times are over, cherish what you actually have. Seek the truth.

    General CommentLOVELOVELOVE it, best song ever !

    As for the meaning, it's basically when something good is gone just move on
    I get the feeling the sunshine represents a person, and it's like they broke up so he'll try and forget her.

    General Commenti think that the sunshine represents the girl that he just broke up with. he feels that he either sees or thinks of her everyday, just like the sun is present everyday. the rest is pretty self explanatory, he is depressed that they broke up but knows that its for the best

    General CommentAgree with you Sweetness7, I can SOOOO relate to this song, as for numerous AAR amazing songs, but hearing this song is like waking up to a beautiful day with a hangover! lol Times were good and love was shared but everything good or bad eventually comes to an end and we, as people, have to learn to keep on keeping on...

    General Commenti love this song but i always think about my ex and all the good times i had with her but she broke up with me. But i then relized after months of being broken up she can never keep a steady relationship so i gues it was for the best just like the song i moved on
