words and music by Erik J. Matthews

I SAY GOODBYE TO GOLDEN SUNRISE

WHY'D YOU MAKE ME SO BLUE

I SAY GOODBYE TO CRYSTAL BLUE SKIES

HYPNOTIZED TO BE WITH YOU


I NEVER SAID I'D LOVE YOU FOREVER 

OH NO NO NO NO

I NEVER VOWED TO HONOUR OR TREASURE

OH NO NO NO NO

A SIMPLE LOVE SIMPLY FELL APART WHEN WE PULLED ON THE STRINGS

IN RETROSPECT, THE TIES THAT BIND

THEY NEVER STRUNG THEMSELVES AROUND ME


YOU COULD HAVE BEEN MY SUNSHINE GIRL

YOU COULD HAVE BEEN MY SUNSHINE GIRL

YOU COULD HAVE BEEN MY SUNSHINE GIRL


I SAY GOODBYE TO HOLLOWED LIES

FAIRYTALES OF THE ONES I'D WISHED YOU TO BE

I SAY GOODBYE TO PLEADING LAST CRIES

DROWNING OUT THE LIFE RESERVED FOR ME


I NEVER SAID I'D LOVE YOU FOREVER 
OH NO NO NO NO
I NEVER VOWED TO HONOUR OR TREASURE
OH NO NO NO NO
A SIMPLE LOVE SIMPLY FELL APART WHEN WE PULLED ON THE STRINGS
IN RETROSPECT, THE TIES THAT BIND
THEY NEVER STRUNG THEMSELVES AROUND ME

YOU COULD HAVE BEEN MY SUNSHINE GIRL
YOU COULD HAVE BEEN MY SUNSHINE GIRL
YOU COULD HAVE BEEN MY SUNSHINE GIRL



SUNSHINE GIRL
