Lyrics

Just for a day

Written By: SOWATT

Another day
The same misgivings
A life that seems to pass me by

I¹m digging deep
To find good reasons
To carry on and not ask why

So if you say
That it’s meant to be this way
Hey, then I’d stop trying

Hey ,Hey look at me now
I wish somehow
That I could run away
Hey hey hey
And be somebody else just for a day

I¹m picking up
the shattered pieces
Of every wasted day gone by

I¹m looking back
And it releases
Every daydream gone awry

So If you say
That it’s meant to be this way
Hey, then you’d be lying
Hey Hey Look at me now
I wish somehow that I could run away
Hey hey hey
And be somebody else just for a day
Hey Look at me now
I¹ll never change my world so let me be
And I¹ll live out a dream just for a day
I¹ll have it my way just for one day

On my own

Written By: SOWATT

Everything that I believed in
Everyplace that I’ve belonged
In the end I am left standing here
on my own

Every change that I’ve attempted
Every single move I’ve made
Justifies that I’m still standing here
On my own

Underneath a lifeless sky
I sit and wonder why
As echoes of a distant past
remind me that I’m here all alone

When did I begin
Longing for the end
Going through the motions
And trying to pretend
Everything began without you
Ends without you
I¹m here on my own

Every battle for survival
Every step along the way
Far back as I can remember
I am on my own

Every single repercussion
Every shadow of a doubt
In the end, among the masses
I am on my own

Underneath a godless sky
I sit and wonder why
as time and time again
I’m reaching out but I’m still here all alone
Chorus

Underneath a starless sky
I sit and wonder why
but I believe that in the end
You¹ll find me standing here on my own
