Ain’t No Sunshine When She is Gone

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 wonder this time where she’s gone

Wonder if she’s going to stay

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

and this house is ain’t no warm home, anytime she goes away

Only darkness everywhere

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

and this house is ain’t no warm, anytime she goes away

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

it’s not warm when she’s away

aint no sunshine when she’s gone

and she’s always gone too long anytime she goes away,

anytime she goes away

anytime she goes away

anytime…

As sung by Lighthouse Family from the original soundtrack of Notting Hill

Update: Song written by Bill Withers as pointed out by folks commenting.

    First off this song was written by Bill Withers, The words are not this house aint warm
    “This house is not a home, anytime she goes away.”
    I think you should know a little bit more about music before infringing on copyright.

    That’s a beautiful song. I like the Michael Jackson version better. I’ve never seen a more soulful rendition of it than that lil boy Michael did ..

    We have a story writing contest and would love to see you participate. Below are the details :

    Stories have a way of connecting people and touching their hearts. Like a good cup of coffee, a thriller can stimulates one’s senses and linger on far after enjoying it, while at the diametric opposite end of the spectrum, a story that your grandmother narrated to you as a kid, soothed you to sleep and filled you with sweet dreams.

    Stories, like clay, provide an endless medium of possibilities limited only by the author’s imagination. We want to unleash a sea of these stories. Hence Katha Sagar..

    @1markt, @ozymandiaz — thanks for the input. I didn’t know. I wrote the lyrics as I heard from the rendition by Lighthouse Family in the OST of Notting Hill.

    @1markt — I am not claiming this to be a song written or sung by me. I have acknowledged source in my post (that I am now updating to include the song writer). I am not trying to infringe any copyrights here.
