Twilight Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I was stained, with a role
In a day not my own
But as you walked into my life
You showed what needed to be shown

And I always knew, what was right
I just didn't know that I might
Peel away and choose to see
With such a different sight

And I will never see the sky the same way and
I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday and
I will never cease to fly if held down and
I will always reach too high 'cause I've seen
'Cause I've seen, twilight

Never cared never wanted
Never sought to see what flaunted
So on purpose so in my face
Couldn't see beyond my own place

And it was so easy not to behold
What I could hold
But you taught me I could change
Whatever came within these shallow days

And I will never see the sky the same way and
I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday and
I will never cease to fly if held down and
I will always reach too high cause I've seen
'Cause I've seen

As the sun shines through
It pushes away and pushes ahead
It fills the warmth of blue
And leaves a chill instead and

I didn't know that I could be so blind
To all that is so real
But as illusion dies I see there is so much
To be revealed

And I will never see the sky the same way and
I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday and
I will never cease to fly if held down and
I will always reach too high 'cause I've seen
'Cause I've seen, twilight

I was stained, by a role
In a day not my own
But as you walked into my life
You showed what needed to be shown

And I always knew, what was right
I just didn't know that I might
Peel away and choose to see
With such a different sight

And I will never see the sky the same way and
I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday and
I will never cease to fly if held down and
I will always reach too high 'cause I've seen
'Cause I've seen, twilight
