"I Wish I Never Saw The Sunshine" as written by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and Philip Spector....
Baby do you know what you did today?
Baby do you know what you took away?

You took the blue out of the sky
My whole life changed when you said goodbye

And I keep crying
Crying

Oh, baby
Oh, baby
I wish I never saw the sunshine
I wish I never saw the sunshine
And if I never saw the sunshine baby
Then maybe I wouldn't mind the rain

Every day is just like the day before
All alone a million miles from shore

All of my dreams, I dreamed with you
Now they will die and never come true

And I keep crying
Crying

Oh, baby
Oh, baby
I wish I never saw the sunshine
I wish I never saw the sunshine
And if I never saw the sunshine baby
Then maybe I wouldn't mind the rain

Oh, this pain

You know there would not be
This cloud that's over me
Everywhere I go

Oh, baby
Oh, baby
I wish I never saw the sunshine
I wish I never saw the sunshine
And if I never saw the sunshine baby
Then maybe I wouldn't mind the rain

Oh, this pain
I wouldn't mind the rain
There wouldn't be this pain
I wouldn't mind the rain
I wouldn't mind the rain

    "Every day is just like the day before,
    All alone a million miles from shore,
    All of my dreams I dreamed with you,
    Now they will die and never come true,
    An' I keep crying, crying"

    General CommentThis song is painful to listen to. It is such a great song, but it actually hurts to listen to it. It could easily be about a spouse/parent/child who has died. Man, who needs a drink.
