You can read the words to the song below.

Sunshine trying to dry up these crying eyes

Trying to ruin my rainy day

And outside it’s a picture perfect blue sky

Mother nature’s singing in

The world’s in perfect harmony but


I don’t wanna sing that song

And I don’t wanna hear those words

I just wanna carry on and cry for all I’m worth

I don’t feel alright

All I wanna do is hurt tonight

I could find a melody to help me move on

But I don’t wanna sing that song

I could smile

Could probably turn it on a dime

But I’d rather heal in my own time

And I could

Pull some vinyl

Spin myself a happy groove

I know that perfect tune but

It feels a little to soon

Repeat Chorus

I just need to clear my head

And make peace with this pain

Before I move on and let it go

Then I’ll get out of bed

Come out from behind these shades

Might even turn on my radio

Right now …

Repeat chorus

Don’t want the sunshine

Don’t want the blue skies
