Sunshine Song
by Jason Mraz



Well, sometimes the sun shines on other peoples’ houses and not mine,
And the sky paints the clouds in a way it takes away my summertime,
And somehow the sun keeps shining upon you while I struggle to get by,
If there’s a light in everybody, send out your ray of sunshine.

I wanna walk the same roads as everybody else, through the trees and past the gates,
Getting’ high on heavenly breezes and making new friends along the way.
I won’t ask much of nobody. I’m just here to sing along,
And make my mistakes look gracious and learn some lessons from my wrongs.

Sometimes the sun shines on other peoples’ houses and not mine,
While the sky paints the sky all gray and takes away the summertime,
And somehow the sun keeps shining upon you while I struggle to get by,
If there’s a light in everybody, send out your ray of sunshine.

Oh, if this little light of mine combined with yours today,
How many watts could we burn away? How many villages couldn’t we save?
If my umbrella’s tired of the weather, weathered me down…
Well look at me no-ow.

You should look as good as your outlook.
Would you mind if I took some time, to soak up your light, your beautiful light?
You’ve got a paradise inside.
I get hungry for love and thirsty for life,
Much too full of the pain, ‘cause when I look to the sky to help me,
It most always looks like rain.

Sometimes the sun shines on other peoples’ houses and not mine,
While the sky paints the clouds in a way it takes away my summertime,
Somehow the sun keeps shining upon you while I kindly stand by,
A little light never hurt nobody; send out your ray of sunshine.

You’re undeniably warm, cerulean, you’re perfect in design.
I hope you’ll hang around,
so the sun it can shine on,
And the clouds they can roll away,
And the sky can become our possibility.
There’s a light in everybody, send out your ray of sunshine.
