    Lyrics

    [Verse 1]
    Imagine looking at life through rose-tinted glasses
    And the policy of the people is passive
    And all the women got fat asses
    And all the homies got dubs and deeds to spend
    And when the po-po's pass they wave and say "hi"
    And wear a grin (hey)
    And everybody that you meet is a potential friend
    And the women in your life love you for yourself and not your ends
    And the population's real so there's no reason to pretend
    And ignore we are the same, so no one hates you for the colour of your skin
    And every waking thought is one of peace and harmony and bliss
    That simple satisfaction like a plate of eggs and grits
    Senses fully alive like the feeling of a first kiss
    And when it's check out time you got a smile on your lips, huh
    And the whole world is like your next-door neighbour
    Quick to do you a favour even though we come in a million
    different flavours
    And I know there's not enough time to put it all in one rhyme
    So I savour the flavour and sweet taste I feel from
    the rays of the sunshine

    [Chorus - Woman singing]
    Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii'm sittin in the sunshine
    The sunshine, like the world was mine, the sunshine
    Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii'm walkin in the sunshine
    The sunshine, like the world was mine, the sunshine

    [Verse 2]
    If love was a flower I'd spread the petals about the planet
    And plant seeds throughout every city and country
    Even in those who do not want me
    I try to make some sense of the situation that we call life
    Some, verbal illustration to help ease this strife
    Some, lyrical penetration to try to make things right
    In hopes that what I'm saying can saturate your mindframe
    And help you with the pain and the strain of the everyday struggle
    I don't need it all, I wanna see all y'all bubble
    And rise to the top then prove to be hard like a rock
    Cos you know it don't stop unless we let it all stop
    So when you face to face with adversity, just curse him, C
    And look him in the eye, and let him know, that he can't hurt a G
    And that you willin' ta risk it all
    For the things of people that you believe in
    So educate yourself in order to assess your achievements
    And if I had to explain this realer so you could see it in your mind -
    I guess it's kinda like sunshine

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 3]
    Before I continue let me make one thing clear
    Took me a while but there's three things I learned
    to put before my self and career
    God, family and my fans
    I wish that I could hold your hand
    And be like Moses, part the Red Sea and lead you to the promised land
    Our demons blazin, and it feels amazin
    I can lay here till I'm old and grey and shrivelled like a raisin
    Throughout the years 'n months 'n days
    When life used to pass by in a daze
    And I was posted simply gettin faded, just waitin
    Livin life with the eye for nothing but cold steel,
    fast cash and hot payment
    Impatient to be a baller and roll a SS on Daytons
    And now I'm here and I promise to get my whole soul, mind, body and spirit
    And try to lift every voice and rhyme loud as hell so all y'all can hear it
    And still remember the words from that old hip-hop spiritual
    I'm livin in a Gangsta Paradise and I hope y'all remember too
    And even though it's west coast eastside Compton on mine
    It's ok 'cos I don't mind if you share some of my sunshine

    [Chorus x2]

    I'm diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiyin
    before they take away my sunshine
    I ain't lyin (sunshine)
    I'll be diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiyin
    before they take away my sunshine
    And I ain't lyin (sunshine)
