The Sunlight Shines Through (sappy song)

She smiles real quick
Oh it’s fleeting, it’s gone
Like the wings of a bird
Or the tune of a song

Like water through fingers
It floods and it flows
Brings with it warmth
And melting winter snow

She takes my hand as we leap over streams
Streams her eyes melted in faraway dreams

Then we’re twirling around down that old rabbit hole
‘Cept we’ve been here so long, well, we just call it home

Skipping and swaying and humming a hum
We dance to the beat of nobody’s drum

‘Cause it’s life and it’s love
It’s bitter and it’s sweet
And the dance carries on
While we’re light on our feet

When she smiles at me
Snow makes rain overhead
Hissing and spitting
Winter has fled

As the raindrops pound down
First a flow then a flood
I don’t know if this ends in peace or blood

It’s hurricane season and she’s the monsoon
While her warm sunlight smile
Sets flowers to bloom

‘Cause it’s life and it’s love
It’s bitter and it’s sweet
And the dance carries on
While we’re light on our feet

There is no turning back
Only racing ahead
Spurred on to go faster
Her smile in my head

The curve of her lips, gleam of her eyes
Freezing the sunshine whenever she cries

But when that girl smiles
Oh, I swear it’s true
The clouds part like curtains
And the sunlight shines through
