lyrics

I COULDN'T SEE THE SUN SHINE
Adan Olid / Marshall Crenshaw / Darden Smith

I couldn’t see the sun shine
On a sunny day
Couldn’t feel the cool breeze blowing
Coming off the bay
Just a ghost walking
Holding hands with fate
Couldn’t see the sun shine
On the Golden Gate

I was up on the bridge, thinking it was strange
The nation was at Starbucks while we were downrange
Sometimes I feel like the walking dead
Can’t get these thoughts out of my head

I couldn’t see the sun shine
On a sunny day
Couldn’t feel the cool breeze blowing
Coming off the bay
Just a ghost walking
Holding hands with fate
Couldn’t see the sun shine
On the Golden Gate

I never got letters from my family
I wondered if they ever even thought about me
Come back home, didn’t get no parade
Wondering what’s the point of all that I gave

Now I’m in Arlington, finally feel alive
Surrounded by my brothers, they’re all by my side
I can feel their breathing deep inside my soul
I’ll be there for my brothers when they lose control

We’ll all see the sun shine
On a sunny day
We will feel the cool breeze blowing
Coming off the bay
If you are lost out in the darkness
Thinking it’s too late
Come on see the sun shine
On the Golden Gate
