You’re The Sunshine in My Day

Written by Doug Harvey

Mostly Blue

The sky is full of clouds and the rain is pouring down.
It’s Sunday afternoon; there’s nobody else around
I’m stuck here by myself and you’re so far away.
I only wish you’d come on back and say you’re gonna stay.
Me minus you equals the blues
You’re the sunshine in my day

The night grows dark and cold; the wind begins to blow.
As the fades in the west my heartache only grows
There’s nothing I can do and nowhere I can go
To escape this constant sadness and sorrow that I know.
Me minus you equals the blues
You’re the sunshine in my day

I’ve tried so hard to chase these blues away.
Somehow they always return.
It happens every time someone mentions your name.
Maybe someday I’ll learn.

But tonight I’ll dream again about another time
When I had warmth and light and you were truly mine.
And maybe in the morning a letter will convey
That you’ll be coming back to me, and this time you’ll really stay.
Me minus you equals the blues
You’re the sunshine in my day
