- Program Note from Wikipedia

You must be the sun
Only you can light my world with a smile
And while you're gone the angels cry with me
Even they agree

Only you can chase the clouds away
You are like a star
Only you can make my one wish come true
If only I could share my life with you
I'd be in heaven too
Only you can chase the clouds away
