Natasha Bedingfield: Pocketful of Sunshine #MM

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Pocketful of Sunshine performed by Natasha Bedingfield has me moving this week. I love the song's upbeat rhythm and the lyrics fit my current mood perfectly. We just returned from a sweet two week holiday escape, but now reality is calling. Monday was quiet a day to kick off the week. After a huge pile of vacation laundry, my motorcycle decided to turn a back on me and let me push it for almost 2 km back home. I was lucky that Mr.Hubby was still out of office and came to help after I called. He tried to pull me with his motorcycle, but a flat front tire on my motorcycle (what a timing!) was giving both of us a hard time to move forward. The usual ten minute trip turned into I don't even know how long... On other holidays, we could have easily pulled over into a workshop to fix the problems. But yesterday happened to be the time after a very special holiday here in Indonesia, where almost everyone returns to their hometown and many businesses were still on a temporary close. If I didn't have a pocketful of sunshine with me, I could have burst into tears for sure. Well, may be this was just a warm up for the great news I received today, the following day? I woke up to find out that my story submission for an anthology book has been accepted. Awesome. There actually will be a book with my name in it. I'm so excited.

Pocketful of Sunshine is the second single of Natasha Bedingfield's second North American album with the same title, released in 2008. It is also an original soundtrack of the romantic comedy movie The Ugly Truth starring Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl. I hope you'll enjoy watching and listening to the video. Wishing you all better days ahead.

Note: If you can't see this video, Amanda has provided another link by VEVO in this post comments. Thank you.



Pocketful of Sunshine Lyrics

Songwriter: Bedingfield, Natasha; Brisebois, Danielle; Shanks, John M

OOOOh yea yea yea


I got a pocket,
Got a pocket full of sunshine
I got a love and I know that its all mine
Oh, woah

Do what you want,
But your never gonna break me,
Sticks and stone are never gonna shake me
no,oh

I got a pocket,
Got a pocket full of sunshine
I got a love and I know that its all mine
oh, woah

Wish that you could but you aint gonna own me
Do anything but you want
you cant slow me down
no,

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 higher place (a higher place)

I got a pocket,
Got a pocket full of sunshine
I got a love and I know that its all mine
Oh, (got a pocket, got a pocket, got a pocket full of sunshine) oh (and I know that it's all mine)

Do what you want,
But you never gonna break me,
Sticks and stone are never gonna shake me
no, (never gonna shake me) oh (never gonna shake me)

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 higher place (a hegher place)


There's a place that I go
That nobody knows
Where the rivers flow
And I call it home
And theres no more lies
And the darkness is light
And nobody cries
Theres only butterflies


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 higher place (a hiding place)
(2 times)


The sun is on my side
It takes me for a ride
I smile up to the sky
I know I'll be alright


The sun is on my side
It takes me for a ride
I smile up to the sky
I know I'll be alright
