No Sunshine ["Sunshine" Parody]

Not been that successful with the women I pursued
Females frightened me, frequently I was eschewed 
Then there's you, you responded, made me feel like a dream
Both in life and in love, we were always a team
Player 2, player one, thought I'd have you forever
Horror flicks, food at Dick’s, we were always together
Never thought I lose my love, had to put you in the ground
Lost myself when I lost you, and my sanity unwound
Then I found, late night, researching in depression
My obsession to regain you with a bit of a transgression
Do I choose to play god, draw you up from the depths
Could you whisper sweet nothings if you lack a beat and breath
Loneliness leads to madness, madness to romance
Just a chance for a dance, just a dead-eyed lover's glance
Rituals were not difficult, eyes steady on the earth
And as I saw you hand emerge, your undead rebirth

Ain't no sunshine now she's gone
It's not warm now she's away
Ain't no sunshine now she's gone
And she's been gone too long, ever since, she passed away

We’d been together for months, but when the light left your gaze
They couldn’t tear me off the coffin when they put you away
But I dug you from the earth, my Corpse Bride to exhume
Put the romance into necromancy, groom in your tomb
The role of dear to the departed’s difficult, my Ophelia
You’re my darling Dead Girl, but this is necrophilia
Do I have the constitution to commit to a corpse
And if not, is there a legal precedent for divorce?
I feel remorse for even saying it, but it brings me pain
When I tell you that I love you and your answer is “Brains”
I mean, I know that things are technically still great in bed
But could you please just try and kiss me without gnawing my head?
There’s a difference between necking and going for the throat
This is not the kind of loving that I’m trying to promote
Glad you’re back, always love you even if you’re undead
But I worry this relationship is all in my head

Ain't no sunshine now she's gone
It's not warm now she's away
Ain't no sunshine now she's gone
And she's been gone too long, ever since, she passed away

And she's been gone too long, ever since, she passed away
I'm a coward and I shower on the hour just to scour myself
I'm dour you're a flower that I soured cause I'm selfish
I just wish, that this lich, would get out of my mind
Off of my spine, wanna knock you off, chain you down
starve you out, split you in twyne,
Just because you were my sweetheart doesn't make you benign
You are moaning most the time, in the basement, want and ravenous
Feelings twist inside of me from disgust on into amorous 

Dead bodies in my woodshed from the people you’ve infected
Bloody kisses on the lips from the girl I resurrected
I suspected it’d be difficult, but now I regret 
Begetting tragedy with Romero and Juliet
All this reaving leads to grieving, I believe I have to choose
Do I step the danse macabre? Put an end to my voodoos?
I can’t stand to put you down, don’t know how to keep my head 
Just know nothing’s been the same since you came back from the dead

Ain't no sunshine now she's gone
It's not warm now she's away
Ain't no sunshine now she's gone
And she's been gone too long, ever since, she passed away
