Lyrics

It's 2 in the afternoon I've been here since 7am
I've been hiding out on someone's private property
I know sooner or later the owner with his gun
is gonna discover me and say
"Hey what are you doing here alone

In the cold light of day
in the cold light of day
what are you doing here alone
in the cold light of day
in the cold light of day
in the cold light of day
what are you doing here alone
in the cold light of day"

I tried to find the darkest part of the trees
so I could be in an ocean five fathoms down
this pine forest is abandoned and overgrown
I'm not hurting nothing
I'm just waiting around

In the cold light of day
in the cold light of day
I'm just waiting around
in the cold light of day
in the cold light of day
in the cold light of day
I'm just waiting around
in the cold light of day

The sun is like poison it kills all my dreams
just like you kill me with your laughter
I know fear is the one thing you understand
your kisses taste bitter
you say you're my future

In the cold light of day
in the cold light of day
you say you're my future
in the cold light of day
in the cold light of day
in the cold light of day
you say you're my future
in the cold light of day

you say you're my future, you say you're my future
you say you're my future, you say you're my future
you say you're my future, you say you're my future
you say you're my future
