  • Yeah
    Today is gonna be the day
    That they throw it all back to you
    And by now
    You should have somehow realised what you have to do
    The world keeps on turning round
    Bridges keep burning down
    Nobody can hear you now
    No matter how loud you shout

    Sitting in total silence
    Totally lost, no guidance
    You don't call no more
    Nobody can find ya
    Nobody can find the time like they lost their watch
    They find it hard to think you went soft
    I'll find an architect type, promise that I'll make sure
    He puts the building blocks in place
    To start rebuilding, we've been broken since children
    They keep telling me that we're only human
    I don't do no silly excuses
    Nobody wins we're losing
    So violent and abusive
    It's all battle, scars and bruises
    'Cause what really

    The sun shines down on me, on me, on me
    And breaks my ties you'll see, you'll see, you'll see
    That angel's eyes, they bleed
    This life, I chose
    My open wounds they show that
    Memory lane is like a winding road

    Today was gonna be the day
    But they'll never throw it back to you
    By now you should've somehow
    Realized what you're not to do
    I don't believe that anybody
    I don't believe that anybody
    Feels the way I do about you now

    I just want you to know that I love you
    It's a cruel world outside but
    I need you to know that I got you
    Such a forgetful place and
    I don't want them to forget you
    Hard times have arrived and
    I wanna make sure that we get through

    I look into your eyes sometimes
    All I can see is emptiness, no resemblance, no more fire
    Or anything similar
    When did the winter get to us, I'll go blind
    Looking at a light so bright
    But if I can find my way
    Then I'll come back for you and I'll make it right
    I wanna say something but I don't know how
    I gotta keep it moving, I can't turn 'round
    How did David make Goliath fall down?
    What's the king if the king has lost its crown?

    Today is our day
    We ain't running away
    But the night was so long that
    Today is the day that we break off our chains?

    When the sun shines down on me, on me, on me
    And breaks my ties you'll see, you'll see, you'll see
    That angel's eyes, they bleed, this life I chose
    My open wounds they show
    That memory lane is like a winding road
    Like a winding road

    Memory lane is like a winding road
    Like a winding road
    Memory lane is like a winding road Writer/s: AARON DAVIES, LEWIS JANKEL, NOEL GALLAGHER, TOM GRENNAN
