Song Description

This is a 70's Fleetwood Mac-ish groove with its natural big-room drums, pleasant piano and grooving bass. Acoustic guitar strums throughout along with a glockenspiel motif creating a childlike, joyful love call to the sun: "it's a perilous life without our battery sun" sweetly and oddly sings the chorus, and the cycle of choosing darkness or light is couched in an easy, toe-tapping groove.

Story Behind the Song

One day, the sun returned and happiness was automatically enhanced. What would we do without the sun giving us physical and mental positive energy? I used the metaphor of the sun giving my soul the food it needed after the soul engaged in a darker period that was sadly much more rooted on the ground.


Sunshine, sunshine

Once again the flood returns
there is water up to my changing mind
I don't know what to do in situations like these

Once in a while gliding up in the clouds
only to find myself diving down and then
scraping up some food for my soul
and lifting off again

It's a perilous life without our battery sun
so let the sun shine

Clouds. opaque and then dissipate
making way for a cleaner vision
welcome home, my sun above
I've missed you

It's a perilous life without our battery sun
so let the sun shine

Life goes on after each hurricane
and these obstacles
they're just little puddles
(just puddles, sun sun sun sun oo oo sun)

It's a perilous life without our battery sun
so let the sun shine

Sunahine, sunshine

Let the sun shine
