Pocket Full of Sunshine Lyrics

[Interlude]
I got a pocket,
got a pocket full of sunshine
I've got a love and I know that it's all mine
oh.oh,oh
Do what you want,
but you're never gonna break me,
sticks and stones are never gonna shake me
oh,oh,oh

[Chorus]
Take me...

    I think this song is about infidelity.

    She is with someone who doesn't treat her well ...
    Do what you want,
    but you're never gonna break me,
    sticks and stones are never gonna shake me

    Wish that you could,
    but you ain't gonna own me
    do anything you can to control me


    But has a secret love ...
    I got a pocket,
    got a pocket full of sunshine
    I've got a love and I know that it's all mine

    The secret love is the one she turns to (place where she goes) to get away from the pain caused by the person she is with ....
    There's a place that I go
    That nobody knows
    Where the rivers flow
    And I call it home
    And there's no more lies
    And the darkness is light
    And nobody cries
    there's only butterflies

    And her dream is that someday she can escape the person she is with and be with the one she loves ....
    Take me away (take me away)
    A secret place (a secret place)
    A sweet escape (a sweet escape)
    Take me away (take me away)
    Take me away (take me away
    To better days (to better days)
    Take me away (take me away)
    A hiding place (a hiding place)

    Sunshine is basically vitamin D. People usually make the Vitamin D joke like a dick joke. Later on she says “take me away” which I believe she’s telling someone with a big pp to f her.

    She is talking about heaven which is in all of us and helps us deal with the hardships in life.

    I think she has a problem in her life and the meaning that she is saying sticks and stone are never gonna break me I think she means I'm never gonna let myself give up

    I believe that this song is about staying positive through out the negatives. When you are having a rough time it is difficult to stay positive and to try you get your self through the situation you are dealing with.

    I think she's really depressed, and she cuts herself....or used to (there's only butterflies) the butterfly is the sign for self harm...but now she says the sun is on her side, which means things are brightening up. And at the end she says she smiles up to the sky, which I guess it's all over and she's happy. :)

    What I think is that she has problems with her life and she using drug to fix it and it's not making it any better for herself and she's jealous virgin.

    I think the pocket full of sunshine is either referring to a pocket full of drugs or she's referring to her vagina as a pocket full of sunshine, I'm not sure which

    I just heard this song on a download fron Brian Harden. I was blown away with the new thought that this is really how I feel when I wake up in the morning and ask God, "What do you have for me today?" As ideas come to me, I write them down. Now I have the freedom to choose whether I want to do these things. ( Sometimes it's not about doing, but about waiting) I've only been doing this since the beginning of the year, actually following as best I can His direction. And I've got to say that this song so describes how I've been feeling. Even that she uses the analogy of "sunshine" when I can say "sonshine". Last year this would have sounded so corny to me, but now, I'm all about it.
    heguides comes from an inspirational book called "God Guides", written in India, used even by Hindus. Thanks for reading this.

    I love this song. It could mean a lot of things to different people. To me, she is talking about how some people in the world try to keep others from success either out of jealousy, hatred, or just plain meanness. When she says take me away to better days, a sweet escape, a hiding place. She longs for the time when she did not know how ruthless the world could be. Back when she was innocent to how cruel people can be to each other. When she says she has a pocket full of sunshine, she is referring to herself. She has her own happiness and self worth that the world will never own or take from her. I HAVE A LOVE AND I KNOW THAT ITS ALL MINE, means that she a love for herself and know one can take that from her. People can continue to try and break her, with their evil and back stabbing ways, but they will never control her because she loves herself too much to fall prey to the ways of the world.
