Subject: Lyr Add: YOU TOOK MY SUNSHINE (Curly Seckler)
Here's how I hear it:

Curly Seckler

1. I hate to see the rain fall on my windowpane.
It reminds me of the day you went away.
Now all I do is yearn and pray for your return*
And help drive these rainy clouds away.

CHORUS: You took my sunshine [all?] with you,
But you left a sweet memory
Of the happy times we've met, but I still love you yet,
And I wonder if you ever think of me.

2. In dreams, your face is all I see. Do you ever think of me?
Are you wishing you were with me just once more?
Could you ever be the same as the day I changed your name?
Could you love me as you did before?

* It would improve the grammar to sing "and pray that you'll return."
