lifeblood: songs: lyrics: ain't no sunshine


ain't no sunshine when she's gone
it's not warm when she's away
ain't no sunshine when she's gone
and she's always gone too long
anytime she goes away

wonder this time where she's gone
wonder if she's gone to stay
ain't no sunshine when she's gone
and this house just ain't no home
anytime she goes away

there ain't no sunshine when she's gone
there's only darkness every day
ain't no sunshine when she's gone
this house just ain't no home
anytime she goes away

i know, i know, i know, i know
i know, i know, i know, i know
i know, i know, i know, i know
i know, i know, i know, i know
i know, i know, i know, i know
i know, i know, i know, i know
i know, i know, i know, i know
i know, i know, i know, i know
i know, i know, i know, i know
i know, i know, i know, i know
i know, i know, i know, i know
i know, i know, i know, i know
i know i ought to leave the young thing alone
ain't no sunshine when she's gone

wonder this time where she's gone
(wonder this time where she's gone)
wonder if she's gone to stay
(i wonder if she's gone to stay)
ain't no sunshine when she's gone
and this house just ain't no home
anytime she goes away
anytime she goes away
(anytime she goes away)
anytime she goes away
(oh yeah)
