If The Sun Didn't Shine

Leon - Vocal & Lyrics
I played the guitar solos and sang a bit.

An bluesy song in a minor key about a lost love.

If the Sun Didn’t Shine

If the sun didn’t rise tomorrow
And nights were everlasting
I don’t think that I would feel any worse
Than I do right now my darling

When you said those words to me
I don’t need you anymore
Suddenly I couldn’t see
Anything worth living for

If the sun didn’t shine
If the sun didn’t shine
If the sun didn’t shine anymore

If the sun didn’t rise tomorrow
I don’t think that I would care
Cause when the sun comes up tomorrow
You no longer will be there

And without you beside me
All the meaning disappears
Without you beside me
I see only barren years

If the sun didn’t shine
If the sun didn’t shine
If the sun didn’t shine anymore

How would I pass the minutes
And the hours in the days
In a world that’s become monochrome
Only different shades of grey

If the sun didn’t rise tomorrow
And nights were everlasting
I don’t think that I would feel any worse
Than I do right now my darling

If the sun didn’t shine
If the sun didn’t shine
If the sun didn’t shine anymore

Peter,
Well that got me bopping around!
Nice deadpan vocal by Leon and some very tasty solo breaks.
Very enjoyable.

Great groove! Love the approach Leon took for the vocal, and the guitar leads are right on the money.

Nice one guys, enjoyed the listen!

Somehow this sounds a little different from your usual work.
Great guitar work as usual but I particularly like the lower sounding vocals especially in the beginning.

That took off from the first note and never let up.

Very cool. A good blues write. Cool vocal.

Very cool tune Peter. Guitar was excellent loved the vocal and backtrack. I envisioned John Belushi and the Blues Brothers playing this tune. Very cool

Leon and Peter,

Cool song! I (Alan) always love Blues Rock in minor keys. The piano track on the right pan is perfect. The vocals are clear and interpret the lyric quite nicely. Great guitar work! Great listen, guys!!!

Leon and Peter. Nicely done. I liked the vocal and the background vocals. The guitar tone is killer with some great playing to boot. A really good listen. Tom

We're listening on the "big system" and enjoying this tune again.

As Janice just said, "I love his guitar, obviously, and Leon's vocal. The harmonies are good and the piano works so well."

Not much to add to that other than Leon never disappoints with a lyric.

Nice addition to the playlist!

Bud
