# Take the ribbon from my hair

0:00:020:00:07

# Shake it loose and let it fall

0:00:100:00:15

# Layin' soft against your skin

0:00:180:00:26

# Like the shadows on the wall

0:00:270:00:32

# Come and lay down by my side

0:00:340:00:40

# Till the early morning light

0:00:440:00:48

# All I'm taking is your time

0:00:510:00:56

# Help me make it through the night

0:00:590:01:04

# I don't care what's right or wrong

0:01:070:01:12

# And I won't try to understand

0:01:150:01:21

# Let the devil take tomorrow

0:01:230:01:31

# For tonight I need a friend

0:01:310:01:38

# Oh, yesterday is dead and gone

0:01:380:01:43

# And tomorrow's out of sight

0:01:470:01:53

# And it's so sad to be alone

0:01:550:02:00

# Help me make it through the night

0:02:030:02:08

SHE HUMS

0:02:100:02:15

# Lord, it's so sad to be alone

0:02:270:02:33

# Help me make it

0:02:340:02:37

# Through the night

0:02:370:02:41

# Through

0:02:410:02:44

# Lead me through the night

0:02:440:02:48

# Woo-woo...

0:02:480:02:51

# Come on and take me through the night

0:02:510:02:55

# Woo-woo...

0:02:550:02:58

# Through...

0:02:590:03:03

# The...

0:03:040:03:07

# Night...

0:03:080:03:14

# Take the ribbon from my hair... #

0:03:140:03:22

Women can say stuff like,

0:03:290:03:33

"I loved him, I really loved him,

0:03:330:03:36

"but he just left.

0:03:360:03:38

"Why did he leave like that?"

0:03:380:03:40

Men, given the same situation, usually say something like,

0:03:400:03:45

"I'm glad the old jive broad split, man",

0:03:450:03:48

knowing all the time that it's really killing him inside.

0:03:480:03:52

So once in my life, I wanted to forego my own male ego

0:03:520:03:56

and admit to losing something.

0:03:560:03:59

So I came up with...

0:03:590:04:00

# Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

0:04:020:04:06

# It's not warm when she's away

0:04:090:04:12

# Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

0:04:150:04:19

# And she's always gone too long

0:04:190:04:22

# Any time she goes away

0:04:220:04:24

# Wonder this time, where she's gone

0:04:280:04:32

# Wonder if she's gone to stay

0:04:350:04:39

# Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

0:04:410:04:45

# And this house just ain't no home

0:04:450:04:48

# Any time she goes away

0:04:480:04:52

# I know, I know, I know, I know I know, I know, I know, I know...

0:04:550:05:00

# I oughta leave the young thing alone

0:05:110:05:15

# But ain't no sunshine when she's gone

0:05:150:05:19

# Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

0:05:210:05:26

# Only darkness every day

0:05:280:05:31

# Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

0:05:350:05:38

# And this house just ain't no home

0:05:380:05:41

# Any time she goes away

0:05:410:05:46

# Any time she goes away

0:05:480:05:52

# Any time she goes away... #

0:05:550:06:03
