Light of Day

.
So you gave it up on it
Said it wasn't worth it anymore
Said you got tired of banging on the door

The world's just a joke outside
You said as you watched it pass you by
And so you let it make you cold inside

But don't go believin'
All of the voices
Livin' in your head
Sayin' hope is dead

When there's nobody there
When you're all alone
And it's just you and you
Tryin' to make it through

When there's nobody left
Except the TV set
Open up the shades
And gaze into the light of day
Gaze into the light of day

Tired of the promising
Tired of still waiting in the wings
Tired of the nothin'
Being everything

You say to hell with it
I don't really need this anymore
But that's just the crazy in you ramblin'

It feels like forever
But it's only a moment
That's gonna pass you by
Don't go sleepin' with a lie

When there's nobody there
When you're all alone
And it's just you and you
Tryin' to make it through

When there's nobody left
Except the TV set
Open up the shades
And gaze into the light of day
Gaze into the light of day

When there's nobody there
When you're all alone
And it's just you and you
Tryin' to make it through

When there's nobody left
Except the TV set
Open up the shades
Open up the shades

When there's nobody there
When you're all alone
And it's just you and you
Trying to make it through

When there's nobody left
Except the TV set
Open up the shades
And gaze into the light of day
