Ain’t (Draft 1)

Ain’t

Hell no sunshine when she’s left away signs
sorrow’s moody glow and bad omen ways

Hell no sunshine when she’s left
know no be when I am cold

I am gone and dark
no way happy lark, and
her feather has flown bereft

Should I not be dark in sorrow’s moody glow
if she’s gone away in stolen nights too
taken sunshine days away in cloudy haze
and maze of labyrinthine pain

Say I know no sunshine when she’s away
left me streetlight shadows of dismay

Hell no sunshine when she’s away
know no be when I am not

If there’d be no sunshine ever now for me
am I not so moody cool in shadow’s way

Hell no sunshine when she’s gone away
sorrow’s moody glow illuminates the way

if she’s taken fools and done me old,
hell no sunshine ’cause she’s cold
