16 Tons Lyrics

by Dandy Warhols

All this gray mornings are now so normal
Remember the time we are bored of waking up
With the sky crying over the cities

I wish you were the sun
I wish you were the sun
To burn my heart that fast
I wish you were the sun

Living trapped in our own lonely house
We can't call it home, we can't call it love
It's just too small and dark
It's just too small

All I want is a bright day
A bright day to enlight my mind
Lift your fists to the sky
I wish you were my sun

And the rain don't show any will to stop
Remember the times you acted in the same way?
The streets now are flooding with death

I wish you were the sun
I wish you were the sun
To burn my heart that fast
I wish you were the sun

I wish you were the sun
I wish you were the sun
To burn my heart that fast
