Sunshine

See, it ain't that surprising, what with me being a nerd
I find my girls on the net rather than the local herd
Cary Grant on Instant Message, Drew Carey when in person
Romance held on the phone, dirty words before I meet 'em
Fly to them, they fly to me, just a week long vacation
Together, at long last, for several kinds of space invasion
Just like Offspring, Gone Away, another day, forever more
In this instance it's the distance that's between us I abhor
However if we're Drawn Together that can cause concerns
Do I want you as Waylon Smithers to my Mister Burns
I'm a boyfriend for a week, then I'm a single for a season
Lasting aftertaste of licking you like Stork Chocolate Riesen
Back to table top, comic books, MySpace browsin'
Then at two in the morning, phone calls for carousin'
Sure I want you to move, have a girl for every day
At least I'm pretty sure, or at least that's what I'll say

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she's always gone too long, anytime, she goes away

We've been together for months but seeing each other for days
Couldn't tear us off the other but nobody stays
The Happiest Place on Earth is beneath your tail feathers
Like a Morlock I do better when I'm all up in your nethers
The role of out-of-state suitor is difficult form a distance
Without the glamer in your gaze, without your fire-eyed insistence
Do I have the constitution to commit to my queen
Or still play the court jester, and keep selling this dream
Magic beans to a fabled land where we could reside
But can this fool leave off his playful games and make her a bride
I mean, my roster of Rapunzels is a very short list
And the only one that's lived with me is attached to my wrist
There's a difference between permanent and out for a jaunt
You say “But don't you want me?”  I don't know what I want
Want you here, want you there, want you without underwear
Want to care, but I fear, to set in stone this brief affair

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she's always gone too long, anytime, she goes 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 self-ish
I just wish you'd go fish, but you hang on my line
grape on the vine, wanna pluck you off, chew you up
spit you out, step on you, drink you like wine
Just because I drink your vintage doesn't mean that your mine
You're just a screen name most the time, just a chat room for the two of us
Texting filthy intonations like a virtual succubus

Dirty picture in my email in a zip file with a lock
Web cam in my pants filming footage (inchage) of my cock
It's a shock but it's obvious that I'm over the moon
For a girl that's R-U-N-N-O-F-T too soon
Sweet nothings equal something and that something is a choice
Do I swallow apprehension, do I give these words a voice
I can't stand to have you gone don't know how to keep you here
Just know nothing comes easy it's the only part that's clear

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she's always gone too long, anytime, she goes away

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she's always gone too long, anytime, she goes away
