(S.Miller/E.Burton - PRS/MCPS)

 

So tired of giving this fight

Of never feeling the warmth you get from the light

Although the sun it shines, the sun it shines

The darkness it will come as the sky caves in

Takes me down and holds me there, pins me to the ground

 

Chorus

We each go down, everyone, in sorrow when the day is done

We each go down, everyone, in sorrow when the day is done

 

Feel the static fill my lungs words I should never say sit upon my tongue

I was robbed of these years, robbed of these years

Cover up the cracks movement sets the scene.

Leave me here, let me go, I hope you will forget

 

Chorus

 

I sleep on the edge when sleep’s on my side

Breathe the highs and the lows in the space where they collide

I’ll live in the shadows of my brightest day

In the half light I'll remain, keeping you at bay

Pick me up, put me on your back, I heard the mourners say

 

Chorus

sorrow when the day is done
