Let My sunshine In

Amateur ukulele song written on blue Bessie the ukulele

Oh no, not another amateur ukulele song!

I’m genuinely sorry to keep doing this to you. But remember how I told you back in my Lockdown Blues post, that back in 2019 I promised myself 2020 would be the year I pushed out of my comfort zone and do more things that scare me? And I started trying to make some music, because though that wasn’t what I envisioned, it is really scary? Well I’ve done that again. Sorry.

So here’s my latest ukulele song. I’ve been playing since February (it’s now late August), and you can tell I’m very much a beginner, but I had fun doing it.

Let My Sunshine In

Lyrics, for those who like to read them:

Let My Sunshine In

Tell me where you go to
When your smile is frozen
Drawbridge isn’t open
Smiles wrapped in slight frowns

Tell me where you go to
When even I can’t get through
If your eyes are windows
Shutters are battened down

I heard you softly weeping
When you thought I was sleeping
I can’t breach your keep tho
Your walls are shut to me

So open up your curtains baby
Let my sunshine in
I’m battering your portcullis
But that’s not how we win
Open up your curtains baby
Let my sunshine in
I don’t mind if you need time
But don’t get lost within


Oh I don’t wanna be outside
Wanna hang on for the ride
If you let me see inside
I promise that I’ll stay
Oh I wanna be right by your side
I’d hold you every time you cried
With me you never have to hide
So don’t push me away

So open up your curtains baby
Let my sunshine in
I’m battering your portcullis
But that’s not how we win
Open up your curtains baby
Let my sunshine in
I don’t mind if you need time
But don’t get lost within

Let my sunshine in
