"The Shadow Proves the Sunshine" is the fourth track on Switchfoot's fifth album, Nothing Is Sound.


Sunshine, won’t you be my mother
Sunshine, come and help me sing
My heart is darker than these oceans
My heart is frozen underneath

We are crooked souls trying to stay up straight,
Dry eyes in the pouring rain well
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Two scared little runaways
Hold fast till the break of daylight when
The shadow proves the sunshine

Oh Lord, why did you forsake me?
Oh Lord, don’t be far away, away
Storm clouds gathering beside me
Please Lord, don’t look the other way
I’m a crooked soul trying to stay up straight

Shine on me,
Let my shadows prove the sunshine
