Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone.

This song really speaks to me.

It’s not warm when she’s away.

Why?

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone.

Because when you love someone they’re a light in your life.

And she’s always gone too long.

Really?

Anytime she goes away.

Yes, when I’m around you everything is lighter.

Wonder this time where she’s gone.

I don’t have that. I don’t have any light.

Wonder if she’s gone to stay.

I don’t think we should see each other much after this.

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone.

Why?

And this house just ain’t home

I know you said you wanted to be friends but I just can’t do it.

Anytime, she goes away.

I know it hurts but I do care about you.

And I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, but I love you. I want to be with you.

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I like being around you but I can’t be with anyone right now

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, but sometimes the way you look at me I think, maybe he’s changing his mind.

I know, I know, I know, I know

I know it’s misleading, but you’re not someone that I never want to see again

I know, I know, I know, I know

I know you care for me, but you don’t love me. You don’t.

I know, I know, I know, I know

If you think it’s for the best.

Hey, I outta leave young thing alone

I do.

But ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone.

Do you want to just forget about it the rest of the night?

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

No, I’m going to go, I’m sorry.

Only darkness every day.

Want to go for a walk first?

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone.

No, I’m just going to leave.

And this house just ain’t no home.

I’m going to miss you.

Anytime she goes away.

I’m going to miss you too.

Anytime she goes away.

Anytime she goes away.

Anytime she goes away.
