About Sunshine

"Sunshine" is the second single released from Pop Idol runner-up Gareth Gates' second studio album, Go Your Own Way. The single was released on 15 September 2003, and it peaked at #3 on the UK Singles Chart. This was the second single from Gates' that failed to reach the top spot. The promotional video was infamously available to vote to enter the MTV2 viewers chart, despite the fact the channel was entirely an alternative rock format. It gained under 10 votes and was included to vote on as a joke.

I'm the first to complain about the rain
'Cause I don't like it like that
But when I see the sunshine
Breakin' through the clouds, I'm lovin' 
The rest of the day

Come take a walk with me
We'll take our time as we
Watch our cares float away (ooh yeah)
This is the time when I, don't even have to try
Hope this happens today (eeh eeh)

What ya gon' do about it
What ya gon' say when I say
Baby it's just one of those days
What ya gon' do today
You can see that I'm smilin?
Baby there's no denying
'Cause the sun is shining
What ya gon' do today (aah aah)
What ya gon' do today

Since the clouds up above, obstruct the sun
I'll be waitin' in doors (I'll be waitin' for you)
But when I see the sunshine
Breakin' through the clouds, I'm lovin' 
The rest of the day (yeah yeah)

What ya gon' do
What ya gon' do today (x4)
