I went to the market
though it was threatening rain
i was late to the station
so i missed that train
and the streets filled with umbrellas
and we all look the same
but i'm the one who's waiting
til the sun comes out again
i say

i was made for sunny days
i make due with grey
but i didn't stay
i was made for sunny days
and i was made for you

found the book you gave me
when we were first in bloom
when i thought that you might save me
from the dark side of the moon
instead we both went walking
to the shadows in the gloom
and we never did stop talking
and you still light up the room
i say

i was made for sunny days
i make due with grey
but i didn't stay
i was made for sunny days
and i was made for you

oooo the nights are longer
oooo you make me stronger
and the late light lingers on the grass
and the nights are dark but then they pass
they don't seem so deep
i'm still losing sleep but i don't mind
i don't mind

i got you a winter jacket
that our baby wears around
and we chase him through the spring time
and the sleeves drag on the ground
and every hour we're working
and work and play are bound
and every day is sunday
cause the sun comes dancing down
i say

i was made for sunny days
i make due with grey
but i didn't stay
i was made for sunny days
and i was made for you

i was made for sunny days
i make due with grey
but i didn't stay
i was made for sunny days
and i was made for you

i was made for sunny days
and i was made for you

    General CommentCan't wait for Be My Thrill! You can listen to the single on Pandora (for the song Be My Thrill), although it may take a while to come around.
