Afraid of Sunlight Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Drive the road to your surrender
Time comes around, out of my hands
Small boats on the beach at the dead of night
Come and go before first light, first light

Leave me running in the wheel
King of the world
How do you feel
What is there to feel

And how do we now come to be
Afraid of sunlight
Tell me girl, why you and me
Were scared of sunlight

How do we now come to be
Afraid of sunlight
Tell me girl, why you and me
Were scared of sunlight

Been in pain for so long
I can't even say what hurts anymore
I will leave you alone, I will deny
I will leave you to bleed, I will leave you with your life

So how do we now come to be
Afraid of sunlight
Tell me girl, why you and me
Were scared of sunlight

All your spirit rack abuses
Come to haunt you back by day
All your byzantine excuses
Given time, give you away

So don't be surprised when daylight comes
To find that memory prick your thumbs
You'll tell them where to run to hide
I'm already dead, it's a matter of time
It's a matter of time

So how do we now come to be
Afraid of sunlight
Tell me if you're aware you an' me
Were scared of sunlight

How do we now come to be
Afraid of sunlight
Tell me if you're aware you an' me
Were scared of sunlight

How do we now come to be afraid

Dayglo Jesus on the dash
Chalk marks on the road ahead
Friendly fire in hostile waters
Keep the faith, don't lose your head

So how do we now come to be?
