A Little Sunshine





A Little Sunshine



Every time I touch that lock of your hair

That you left in a letter that I kept for all these years

My vision is diluted, but my memory is clear


I tried to delete every letter that you wrote

I kept them in a locker with your last note

Every word but your name got stuck in my throat



Around about the time I’d learned to give up

I already knew I could never stop

Believing that a ray of light

Shines only as bright

As the eye that needs a little sunshine



When you came back to thank me for my time

I didn’t know what had passed or how I was declined

I let you put a spark in a feeling in my spine


Now you’ve left again and I’ve renewed my loss

I never had the time to remember how it was

When I came to you and you let me pay the cost
