Spreading Sunshine

Sitting here on a Friday with a half-finished manuscript, coffee, and some music in hand, and a wonderful song passes through the speakers. And I think to myself, holy cow, I love it. I especially like the title, I Make My Own Sunshine, and think how appropriate that is for everyone. Apparently, this was used in a Lowe's commercial some time back, but I don't watch television, so I'm a bit behind the times. So in an effort to spread a bit of sunshine, I'm including the lyrics here. Now go out and make your own sunshine, every day. You'll thank me.

I Make My Own Sunshine, Alysa Bonagura

Everything is wonderful
Everything is great
Free as a bird singing outside my window pane
Got a fresh new start
It's a brand new day
And I got lots of love to give away 


It don't matter if it's raining
Nothing can phase me
I make my own sunshine
And if you think you can break me
Baby you're crazy
I make my own sunshine 


Hey, let's make a rainbow
Look for the pot o' gold
I'll show you how to keep it nice and easy
Even if a cloud starts forming on my lovely day
There's nothing, no nothing, that could stand in my way 


It don't matter if it's raining
Nothing can phase me
I make my own sunshine
And if you think you can break me
Baby you're crazy
I make my own sunshine
