Today I have a pocketful of Sunshine!

Ok so I am on a Natasha Bedingfield spree but she has a number of inspirational songs, her music most days gets me wanting to literally get up and start dancing with my eyes closed, feeling her words hit my soul with a big smile on my face.Β  Woke up this morning with this song in my head.Β  This song, when you hear it you can’t not feel good, you can’t not feel its beat or its words, when you’re down low it makes me want to get up and fight for another day, I hope it does the same for you πŸ™‚

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it’s all mine.
Oh, oowhoaoh.

Do what you want, but you’re never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.
Oh, oowhoaoh.

Take me away! A secret place!
A sweet escape! Take me away!

Take me away! To better days.
Take me away! A hiding place!

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it’s all mine.
Oh, oowhoaoh.

Do what you want, but you’re never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.
Oh, oowhoaoh.

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it’s all mine.
Oh, oowhoaoh.

Wish that you could, but you ain’t gonna own me.
Do anything you can to control me.
Oh, oowhoaoh.

Take me away! A secret place!
A sweet escape! Take me away!

Take me away! To Better days!
Take me away! A hiding place!

There’s a place that I go,
But nobody knows.
Where the rivers flow,
And I call it home.

And there’s no more lies.
In the darkness, there’s light.
And nobody cries.
There’s only butterflies!

Take me away! A secret place!
A sweet escape! Take me away!

Take me away! To better days!
Take me away! A hiding place!

Take me away! A secret place!
A sweet escape! Take me away!

Take me away! To better days!
Take me away! A hiding place!

Take me away! A secret place!
To better days! Take me away!

Take me away! To better days!
Take me away! A hiding place!

The sun is on my side.
Take me for a ride.
I smile up to the sky.
I know I’ll be all right.

The sun is on my side.
Take me for a ride.
I smile up to the sky.
I know I’ll be all right.

    Deeps, dost, have bin hectic designing followed by my other job as a stylist for biz ladies πŸ˜€ was fun

  3. First time I have heard this song – hmm not my favorite by her musically – but love the lyrics. Hard to beat Unwritten which is one of my ALL time favorite songs!

  4. Her first album in my books is more calmer, her second is more introspective but more electronic, mixed bag… Unwritten is a classic like none other, in my top 15 – you have good taste πŸ˜€
