  • 1. “SUNSHINE”BY LUPE FIASCO Lyrics Analysis
  • 2. [CHORUS] YOURE MY SUNSHINE (YOURE MY SUNSHINE), YOURE MY MOONLIGHT (YOURE MY MOONLIGHT), YOURE THE STARRY SKIES ABOVE ME WONT YOU PLEASE COME DOWN AND HUG ME, THINK I FOUND LOVE IN THIS CLUB TONIGHT (WOWOWOWO)The chorus portrays that “Sunshine” has a theme of love
  • 3. UH, FRESH TO DEF SHE IS FROM HER STEPS TO THE SET SHE IS SO "DEATH" MIGHT NOT LET ME LIVE YA DIG FRESH UH HUH, YES SHE IS HAD A FEELING THAT IT WOULD BE A DAY LIKE THISThese lines in the first verse portray that the guy experiencing a worse dayalthough he expects his imaginations or feelings to occur.
  • 4. THE ORCHESTRA IN MY MIND DONT PLAY LIKE THIS (NAW)This line in the first verse conveys that he expects his imaginations to occur inthe real world. He imagines that an orchestra provides background music inhis magical world but he is also aware about the fact that it doesn’t actuallyhappen in the real world.
  • 5. BUT IM PREPARED FOR IT GOT A LIL RARE FOR IT BRUSHED OFF MY AIRS EVEN CUT MY HAIR FOR ITThese lines in the first verse conveys that he expects his imaginations tohappen in the real world and also they describe the ways in which he preparesto face those imaginations in the real world. Getting his haircut done is anexample for this. So far the lyrics in the first verse depicts that a guy isimagining of a beautiful girl and he is looking for such a girl in the real worldwhile trying to be more attractive and dominant. Humour could be added to amusic video created for “sunshine” because of these lyrics.
  • 6. NEVER MET HER BEFORE BUT I THINK I LIKE HER LIKE A METAPHOR ITS HARD TO GET IN THE CAR WE SIT FROM THE INTRO SHE ROLLED DOWN HER WINDOW JUST IN CASE I WAS A SKITZO I COMPLIMENT HER ON THE COMMON SENSE IM CALM A LIL MORE CONFIDENT (UH HUH) AND THEN WE LOSE CONSCIOUSNESSThe third verse starting from these lines describe about the things happeningwhen the guy meets his imaginary girl. However it is hard to recognisewhether the description applies to the real world or to the guy’s imaginaryworld. But when creating a music video for “Sunshine”, the main storylinecould be written in a way to show that scenes related to these lyricshappening either in the real world or in the guy’s imaginary world.
  • 7. SHE SAYS "THAT IVE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU" AND I KNOW YOUVE BEEN CHASING ME TOO SINCE THEY KIDNAPPED ME FROM A CASTLE I BEEN THINKING OF YOUThese lines in the third verse are said by the girl. They make it obvious thatthe girl has a desire towards the boy as well. These lines provide the ability ofshowing the girl’s lip sync when creating a music video for “Sunshine”. Alsothey give rise to a conversation between the girl and the boy.
  • 8. I TOLD HER "FIRE BREATHING DRAGON HE BET NOT HARM ME" OR HE BE SORRY WHEN HE MEETS MY ONE MAN ARMY AND THOU HAS COME TO RESCUE ME MY KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR YES YOU BEThese lines from the third verse show that thelyrics of “Sunshine” has an intertextualreference to the famous fairy tale “SleepingBeauty”.
  • 9. RELATIONSHIP IS JUST 30 MINUTES LONG ITS KINDA HEAVY MAYBE A LIL STRONG GONNA TAKE MUCH MORE THAN ONCE CANT TRUST WHAT EACH OF US SAY AT LEAST FOR A MONTH OR TWO BEFORE I BID YOU A DUE DO THIS ONE THING FOR ME OUTTA THE TRILLIONS OF NUMBERS THATS IN THE WORLD JUST LEAVE ME A FEW THAT LEAD TO YOU WONT BE LONGING I SEE YOU IN THE MORNINGClimax of the story lies within this verse. It depicts about the length of theirrelationship as well.
