We're really missing you We're really missing you And you've only just gone

Well, you punched and fell And you felt embarrassed My heart goes out to you

So I offered love and it was not required What else can I do? What else can I do?

We're really missing you We're really missing you And you've only just gone

So, Sunny send at least one thoughtful letter My heart goes out to you Tell us all how things are so much better My heart it left with you What else can I do?

They're not forgiving you And you're not even wrong With your jean belt wrapped around your arm Oh, Sunny, my heart goes out to you And with the needle pressed onto tight skin Sunny I cry when I see where it's taking you

I'm here - I won't move I'm here - I won't move I'm here I will not move

Wikipedia Information


"Sunny" is a song by English singer-songwriter Morrissey, released as a single in December 1995. It was released by Parlophone to try to cash in on Morrissey's Southpaw Grammar album that had been released that year by RCA Records and consists of three songs that Morrissey had recorded while under contract to Parlophone. "Sunny" had initially been planned to appear on the "Boxers" single released in January 1995, and "Black-Eyed Susan" had at one point been allocated to be the B-side of "The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get" in 1994.
