I chose to arrange and record Shawn's
Grammy-winning 1997 single "Sunny Came Home."
In 1996, Colvin released her "platinum status" album A Few Small Repairs and in
1997 the success of her single "Sunny Came Home" launched her into Pop hit territory.
Her earlier recordings were treated as folk music. The album also contained the enchanting song Never Saw Blue Like That.
Listen to Sunny Came Home
Sunny came home to her favorite room Sunny sat down in
the kitchen She opened a book and a box of tools Sunny came home with a
mission She says days go by I'm hypnotized I'm walking on a wire I
close my eyes and fly out of my mind Into the fire Sunny came home with a
list of names She didn't believe in transcendence It's time for a few
small repairs she said Sunny came home with a vengeance She says days go
by I don't know why I'm walking on a wire I close my eyes and fly out of
my mind Into the fire Get the kids and bring a sweater Dry is good and
wind is better Count the years, you always knew it Strike a match, go on
and do it Oh days go by I'm hypnotized I'm walking on a wire I close my
eyes and fly out of my mind Into the fire Oh light the sky and hold on
tight The world is burning down She's out there on her own and she's
alright Sunny came home Sunny came home
