The Unlikely Candidates – Sunshine Lyrics

The Unlikely Candidates – Sunshine Lyrics

Hear me now
Mark my words
Sometimes living just takes some courage
When the sky is falling and the talking heads
Say, “To sell some omelets, gotta break some eggs”

Got half a lung and two left shoes
A bulletproof vest and some breaking news
And I’m a blue-collar criminal
If I forget my rent is due

Yesterday wouldn’t believe me
Tomorrow may never come easy

Take me back
To a simpler time
Nothing but sunshine on my mind
‘Cause I’ve been going crazy
Wish someone would
Take me back
To a simpler time
Trouble had a back seat in my life
‘Cause I’m not thinking straightly
Wish someone would take me back
I’m all alone
I’m freaking out
I grab my phone and it calms me down
Scroll past the cats and the foreign press
And then I fill my mind with too much sex

I got half a life
Left to live
Without a world war or any viruses
I’d like to try to buy a house before the ice melts
And the tide comes crashing in

Yesterday wouldn’t believe me
Tomorrow may never come easy

Take me back
To a simpler time
Nothing but sunshine on my mind
‘Cause I’ve been going crazy
Wish someone would
Take me back
To a simpler time
Trouble had a back seat in my life
‘Cause I’m not thinking straightly
Wish someone would take me back
Wish I could rewind
Leave the future far behind me
Wish I could rewind
Leave the future far behind me

Take me back
To a simpler time
Nothing but sunshine on my mind
‘Cause I’ve been going crazy
Wish someone would
Take me back
To a simpler time
Trouble had a back seat in my life
‘Cause I’m not thinking straightly
Wish someone would take me back
