Once upon a year gone by
She saw herself give in
Every time she closed her eyes
She saw what could have been

Well nothing hurts and nothing bleeds
When covers tucked in tight
Funny when the bottom drops
How she forgets to fight, to fight

And it's one more day in paradise
One more day in paradise

As darkness quickly steals the light
That shined within her eyes
She slowly swallows all her fear
And soothes her mind with lies

Well all she wants and all she needs
Are reasons to survive
A day in which the sun will take
Her artificial light, her light

And it's one more day in paradise
One more day in paradise
It's one more day in paradise
One last chance to feel alright, alright

Don't pretend to hold it in just let it out
Don't pretend to hold it in just push it out
Don't you try to hold it in just let it out and
Don't you try to hold it in, you hold it in

One more day in paradise
One more day in paradise
It's one more day in paradise
One last chance to feel alright

Once upon a year gone by
She saw herself give in
Every time she closed her eyes
She saw what could have been
