Light Of Day


Steely sky shedding bullets of rain
Hurt my face as a walk on the shoreline
Waves crashing up onto the stony beach
I look ahead but youíre just out of reach

The sky splits open with lightning bolts
Brighter than day for a flash
The wind blows cold and I feel the spray
Tearing up onto the land

You seem to walk faster than I can run
My lungs burn for breath but youíre too far gone
You canít hear me when I utter my cries
The flashes burn the bruise colored sky

Somewhere in my mind I know this is just a dream
It doesnít stop me from still wanting to scream
I know Iíll never catch up and youíll never hear
I want to wake up but I wonít I fear

So the steel sky spits its bullet rain on the land
And you step lightly while I can hardly move from where I stand
My voice lost in the sound of the cacophony
Youíll never know how much I want you just to hear or see

And I call your name and wave my arms
And you just keep on walking away
I cry out of in frustration but the wind whips away the sound
You just walk on and donít look around
At all

Isnít that just the way in dreams
Nobody hears you even when you scream
But the things you canít have in that nighttime place
Are still right here in the light of day
Still here in the light of day
