Lyrics

In One Day

Written By: Shawn Hillman

In One Day

Verse
I’m taking it all, in one day
They tell me that Rome, wasn’t built that way
I’m taking it all, in one day
I think its black magic, that makes me feel this way

Imagine waking up, to a brand new day
You’re searching for the sun, but the clouds get in the way
Today will be the day, you can’t describe
Tonight will be the night, you wish you weren’t alive

Black rain falling, from Mother Nature’s eyes
The burden of the world, took my best friends life
How can I make it, what can I do
Today is the kind of day, I can’t get through

Chorus
I’m taking it all, in one day
They tell me that Rome, wasn’t built that way
I’m taking it all, in one day
I think its black passion, that makes me feel this way, hey hey aye

Bridge
They’re tearing down my walls, they’re ripping up my beams,
They’re dragging down my world, and killing all my dreams
They’re breaking down my world, and spit upon my soul
Yesterday was so promising, today they stole my goals

Chorus
I’m taking it all, in one day
They tell me that Rome, wasn’t built that way
I’m taking it all, in one day
I think its black magic, that makes me feel this way

Verse
As I walk along, this lonesome road, how could 24 hours
Make me so cold
I always lived my life, the way the said I should
One thing I did wrong, was to be too good
And now I plead, in my mother’s ears, salt pierces
My lips, from my mother’s tears
Spirits die, as my pain lives on, I can’t take much more,
I’m not that strong

Chorus
I’m taking it all, in one day
They tell me that Rome, wasn’t built that way
I’m taking it all, in one day
I think its black magic, that makes me feel this way
