Rooster — Staring At The Sun lyrics

Daylight on my shoulder
Makes me feel alive
You kept me standing in your shadow
And it's a cold cold place to hide

I'm running away from this messed up place
I'm breaking free, yeah yeah

I'm tired of staring at the sun
Can't stand the way you put my eyes so I can't see
Stealing every breath I breathe
You push me into overdrive
And I don't need this kind of light coz now I'm done
You took everything while I was staring at the sun

I know you won't leave me
But just turn and walk away
You tie me up kick me around
Trying to kill my dreams and break me down
But I won't hang around

I'm running away from this messed up place
I'm breaking free, yeah yeah

I'm tired of staring at the sun
Can't stand the way you put my eyes so I can't see
Stealing every breath I breathe
You push me into overdrive
And I don't need this kind of light coz now I'm done
You took everything while I was staring at the sun
I was staring at the sun

Daylight on my shoulder
I know it's time to run
Yes I know it's time to run

I'm tired of staring at the sun
Can't stand the way you put my eyes so I can't see
Stealing every breath I breathe (stealing every breath I breathe)
You push me into overdrive
And I don't need this kind of light coz now I'm done
You took everything while I was staring at the sun
Yeah, yeah staring at the sun
You took everything while I was staring at the sun
