Brighter Than Sunshine Lyrics

I never _1_ before
I never knew what love was for
My _2_ was broke, my head was sore
What a feeling

Tied up in ancient _3_
I didn't _4_ in destiny
I look up you're standing next to me
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
Brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, i don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine
And it's brighter than sunshine

I never saw it _5_
I'd given up and given in
I just couldn't take the _6_ again
What a feeling

I didn't have the _7_ to fight
Suddenly you seemed so right
Me and you
What a feeling


It's brighter than the sun
It's brighter than the sun
It's brighter than the sun, sun, shine.

Love will remain a _8_
But give me your _9_ and you will see
Your heart is keeping time with me
