"You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" as written by and Stevie Wonder....
You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always be around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart

I feel like this is the beginning,
Though I've loved you for a million years,
And if I thought our love was ending,
I'd find myself drowning in my own tears, whoa oh oh ah

You are the sunshine of my life,
That's why I'll always stay around, mmm mmm yeah yeah
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart

You must have known that I was lonely,
Because you came to my rescue,
And I know that this must be heaven,
How could so much love be inside of you?
Whoa oh oh oh

You are the sunshine of my life, yeah,
That's why I'll always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart.

You are the sunshine of my life, baby,
That's why I'll always stay around

    General CommentI used to think this song was ridiculously cheezy... and then the other day, I heard it and it made me get all teary-eyed. LOL see? This is what happens when people grow up. Stevie Wonder is good stuff.

    General CommentCompare these lyrics to "Ain't no sunshine"'s.

    They say the same thing, only Stevie does so in rejoice, while all those singers who sang "Ain't no sunshine," mourned it.


    Optimism at it's best. Gotta love it.

    General CommentMy boyfriend just sent me this song, what the song means is obvious. i believe he sent it to me cause we had a fight last nite, and im taking things a bit harder than i probably should be, i think he just wants me to know that he loves me and that it wont end over some stupid fight like i seem to think, i love him so much, and apparently he loves me.

    General CommentI like how the first words Stevie sings in this song (And the whole album) are "I feel like this is the beginning." Alot like Elvis Costello sining "I just don't know where to begin" on Armed Forces lead-off track Accidents Will Happen.
