Sunshine, won't you be my mother?
Sunshine, come and help me sing
My heart is darker than these oceans
My heart is frozen underneath

We Are
Crooked souls trying to stay up straight
Dry eyes in the pouring rain while
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine
Two scared little runaways
Hold fast till the break of daylight when
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Oh Lord, why did you forsake me?
Oh Lord, don't be far away (away)
Storm clouds gathering beside me
Please Lord, don't look the other way

I am a
Crooked soul trying to stay up straight
Dry eyes in the pouring rain where
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine
Too scared little runaways
Hold fast till the break of daylight when
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Yeah, yeah, shine on me
Yeah, yeah, shine on me
Yeah, yeah, shine on me
Yeah, yeah (shine on me)

(Oh, oh, oh, yea)

We're
Crooked souls trying to stay up straight
Dry eyes in the pouring rain where
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine
Too scared little runaways
Hold fast till the break of daylight when
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Yeah, yeah (the shadow proves the sunshine)
Shine on me (the shadow proves the sunshine)
Yeah, yeah (the shadow proves the sunshine)
Shine on me (the shadow proves the sunshine)
Yeah, yeah (the shadow proves the sunshine)
Shine on me (the shadow proves the sunshine)
Shine on me (the shadow proves the sunshine)
Let my shadows prove the sunshine (the shadow proves the sunshine)

    General CommentIn my personal opinion, this song is about God, and how you can always tell He(the sunshine) is there by the suffering(shadow) He helps you through. And even though sometimes that shadow makes it feel like He is gone forever, it always passes.
