Year To The Day Lyrics

by Van Halen

I woke up to yet another day
Grown to expect, expect more of the same
Except for, for a subtle change
And that is, I'm slowly fading away

Harvest moon, soon will pass
Crop is gone, left only chaff
A bitter pill, and an overcast
A flag unfurled, at half mast, ah

A year to the day
Since you went away
A moment in time
When you were last mine

I'm here standing still
Yeah, with more time to kill
Hey, I barely survived
Yeah, I barely survived

Like pouring salt on an open wound
Memory filling, filling this empty room
I'm as bare, I'm as bare, as a barren womb
Still like the air, in a whitewash tomb, ah

A year to the day
Since you went away
A moment in time
When you were last mine

I'm here standing still
Hey, with more time to kill
I barely survived
Yes, I barely survived, ah

A year to the day
Since you went away
A moment in time
When you were last mine

I'm here standing still
Been standin' still with more time to kill
Hey, I barely survived
I barely survived

A year to the day, year to the day
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
A year to the day, three sixty-five
Three sixty-five, five, five, ah
