Sunshine's Better

click here to play music file



It makes such a difference to ones frame of mind when the Sun is out don’t you think. Anyway today is beautiful and touching 17˚C so I thought I’d share another of my favourite tracks along with the lyrics.

I have an equal passion for words and music so I hope you don’t mind me sharing my indulgence. I especially love good lyrics that tell a story. Enjoy!

Sunshine’s Better - Talvin Singh Remix from Café Del Mar Vol. 4
Artist - John Martyn

If I call you sugar, if you call me honey,
Does this mean you've got a hand in my fate.
If you take my money, if I take your liberty,
Does it mean it's all down to love and hate.
If you open doors for me, I'll have the manners to respond;
I'll treat you like mine.
Ah babe, ah baby.

Sunshine's better on the other side,
Sunshine's better when you make it shine,
The sun shines better.
Sunshine's better on the other side,
The other side of the hill;
The sun shines better.

If I call you lover and if you call me daddy,
Does it mean that we're in love?
If you give me all your hate,
Open up the garden gate,
Does that mean we're in love.

Tell me sugar, call me honey,
Come on darling, I'll just take all my money.
We can run away naked with the flames of desire.
Running through water like birds on fire,
Like birds of a feather...

I tell you, sunshine's better on the other side,
The other side of the stream.
Let's run in tonight - let's run in tonight.
The sunshine's better on the other side of the fence;
Come on darling, let's jump in tonight,
Let's jump in tonight.

Sunshine's better on the other side,
Sunshine's better every time you make that smile of yours reappear.
You chorkle, chuckle, giggle, mumble and
Swing like a bitch,
'Til the day is done - that's what you do.
You can giggle and laugh, make yourself happy,
'Til the day is done, remember.

Sunshine's better on the other side, other side of the hill,
We're going to get there, come on, come on,
Skinny dip, skinny dip, skinny dip, skinny dip.
Skinny dipping around the scene,
Way down by the river,
Sunshine's better on the other side.

They tell me that the sunshine's better on the other side;
Better than this side, you know.
The sunshine's better over there, better over there, better over there.

Sunshine's better;
Sunshine's better on the other side.
Sunshine's better.
Sunshine's better on the other side, the other side of the hill.
Lord, you know where the grass is green,
Oh lord, greener than you've ever seen.

Sunshine's better on the other side
On the other side... 1)
Sunshine's better on the other side,
Sunshine's better, don't you dare to go and hide from me now...

If I call you sugar, would you dare to call me honey?
If I tell you that I love you, would you take all my money.
We could run naked, naked through the fire;
Through the water, through the ice, through the sun,
Through the jungle, through the desert sands.
On the road, down and around the swings, roundabouts.

Sunshine's better on the other side,
Sunshine's better than you've ever seen before in your life.
I'm telling you how I know:
I've been there,
I've been there and gone,
Been there, been there and gone.
Been there.
