Lyrics

                                                    SUNLIGHT                                     

 

Verse 1

Sunlight clawing at the lids of my eyes

It must be morning again

Covered once more in bruises and blood

A deep breath finds more pain

Talking once more when I should have been listening

As my Daddy would say

You’d think what I know would be more by now

But it just doesn’t seem that way

 

Pre-Chorus

Before the darkness leaves me again

I hear my own voice say

 

Chorus

18 years and I don’t know a goddamn thing

Yeah, 18 years and I don’t know a goddamn thing

 

Verse 2

Sunlight ripping at the lids of my eyes

The door slam jars me awake

A note waits for me on the kitchen table

With a drawing of a heart on a stake

“I’ll get my stuff when I drop off the key

Then I won’t be back again”

Alone once more and I am to blame

A cold black heart feels no pain

 

Pre-Chorus

And as the darkness leaves me again

I hear my own voice say

 

Chorus

18 women and I don’t know a goddamn thing

18 women and I don’t know a goddamn thing

 

Solo: Verse, Pre-Chorus, Chorus

 

Verse 3

Sunlight fading at the end of the day

The darkness soothes my eyes

Wondering what life has really been about

As the light bleeds from the skies

An old man now with little left to say

Even less to leave behind

As the day fades, I think about it all

Just one last thing to say

 

Pre-Chorus

And as the darkness calls me away

I know I have more learning to do

 

Chorus

18 lives and I don’t know a goddamn thing

18 lives and I don’t know a goddamn thing
