AL KOOPER lyrics - Sad, Sad Sunshine

AL KOOPER
"Sad, Sad Sunshine"
(Kooper)

Wild-eyed & flashin' cast upon me with the dawn
I have grasped the realization of the new day when it's born
And while looking through a window
Framed with curtains that are worn
There is darkness even in the brightest morning

As the sun it slowly rises there is judgment in it's glare
And it seems too much to ask to light a face that isn't there
And the feelings that are wasted make you feel it isn't fair
When she leaves without a whispered word of warning

SAD SAD SUNSHINE
Waking only those who really know
SAD SAD SUNSHINE
Wonder why you've kissed her with your glow

Magazines of memories I've read a thousand times
Just seem to find their way inside me
Like a dollars worth of dimes
There's only one for every ten
No matter where ya try to climb
And the walls around me aim in one direction

I can still recall the drops of evening in your eyes
And your leaving in the morning
Should have come as no surprise
To one who based his way of living
On another's world of lies
Oh I do not ever claim to seek perfection

SAD SAD SUNSHINE
Waking only those who really know
SAD SAD SUNSHINE
Wonder why you've kissed her with your glow
