I know I'm not perfect,

I know you deserve better than I can be,

And I know I'm selfish,

When I ask you to please just stay with me,

I won't lie when I say,

That I am afraid of being all alone,

I want you by my side,

Because I'm less than whole when I'm on my own,

You are my other half,

You complete me for you are my sunshine,

Even when I'm troubled,

You reassure me always that I'll be fine,

Even when I just cry,

You'd tear the world apart to make me all right,

When cold air blows my way,

I know you'll keep me warm while you hold me tight.

In return I am yours,

I'll make wishes on stars in the night skies,

I'll pray that you love me,

And never deceive you by whispering lies,

I'm yours and you are mine,

I'll sing to you soothing words so you can sleep,

All that I really want

Is for you to be happy, I'm yours to keep…

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,

You make me happy when skies are gray,

You'll never know, dear, how much I love you,

Please don't take my sunshine away.
