sunshine lyrics – uriah heep

for many years i thought like a man
feeling his way through darkness
this priceless treasure for which i’ve searched
appeared to me nothing more than a mirage in the sea

but when the vision faded
from this struggle and dream
suddenly my illusion was staring
i now discovered was reality

sunshine, sunshine, sunshine, i’ve found you
even if you’re only, even if you’re only
even if you’re only just in for a while
sunshine, sunshine, sunshine, i’ve found you
even if you’re only destined for a while

i devote most depressions
and i write this with a smile
as the picture book shows stanley
standing at the source of the nile

but when the vision faded
from this struggle and dream
suddenly my illusion was staring
i now discovered was reality

sunshine, sunshine, sunshine, i’ve found you
even if you’re only just in for a while
sunshine, sunshine, sunshine, i’ve found you
even if you’re only destined for a while
(repeat to end)
