Lyrics

(interpretation)

What good is the sun that shines?
What good is the morning dew?
No matter how sweet
Or lovely the morn
It's no fun at all
When you're alone

Who cares that the sun has gone?
And rain falls around we too?
No matter how cold
Or dreary the night
I can't help but smile
When you're with me
