lyrics

DAY BECAME YOU Ian Roland 31/05/2016

INTRO
HOT COALS WERE IN YOUR EYES, BURNING OUT ALL GOODBYES
AND THE DAY BECAME YOU

VERSE 1
SPIN AROUND ONE MORE TIME, YOU CAUGHT THE LIGHT FROM THE FIRE
TOOK THE FLAME AWAY WITH YOU, MADE THE TRUTH BE YOU
HOT COALS WERE IN YOUR EYES, BURNING OUT ALL GOODBYES
AND MY DAY BECAME YOU.
AND THOSE MEALY WORDS, THE ONES WE THOUGHT WE BARELY HEARD
THE HIDDEN THREATS AND OPEN SORES, WOUNDS WE STRUGGLE TO IGNORE.
I SAT DOWN, COULDN’T THINK, TURNED TO YOU AND SAW YOU BLINK
AND MY DAY BECAME YOU.

CHORUS
YOU MOUTHED SOME WORDS, I COULDN’T HEAR
YOU MOUTHED SOME MORE, I COULDN’T HEAR
YOU TOOK MY HAND, I COULDN’T FEEL
THERE WAS A DEATH ABOUT ME STILL.
YOUR EYES SAID SOMETHING TO MY HEAD
BREATHE IN, BREATHE OUT, BREATHE IN YOU SAID
I REACHED UP AND CAUGHT YOUR HAND
AND MY DAY BECAME YOU, (THE) DAY BECAME YOU

VERSE 2
SURROUNDED BY THE TAKE, TAKE, TAKE
DIDN’T UNDERSTAND, THAT’S MY MISTAKE
SHOULD HAVE FORESEEN THE ENSUING DISASTER, MY LEG IN PLASTER
SAW THE SUNLIGHT CATCH YOUR HAIR, AS I WAS FALLING DOWN THE STAIRS, AND MY DAY BECAME YOU.
(AND) THE UNDERCURRENT DRAGGED, IT PUSHED FORWARD, I PUSHED BACK
AND ALL THOSE HATEFUL THINGS, BEGAN TO GATHER IN A RING
JUST FOR A MOMENT I THOUGHT I SAW, YOU AND ME WALK THROUGH A DOOR, AND THE DAY BECAME YOU

CHORUS
INSTRUMENTAL VERSE, CHORUS
