Live by Night

  • You live by night
    And waste the day
    You give yourself
    You give yourself away

    I know that when you started
    You liked the way you felt
    And yes I understand you
    But to everybody else

    It's black and white
    To you it's grey
    You know I'll love you anyway

    But it seems to me you're living on the run
    But I hope you know you're not the only one

    Who lives by night
    Lives by night
    They're only trying to chase away the sun

    And when you play
    The way you do
    The sun don't shine
    The same way for you

    And you say you don't abuse it
    But baby I can tell
    We both know what the truth is
    But to everybody else

    It's black and white
    It's night and day
    You know I'll love you anyway

    But it seems to me you're living on the run
    And now you know you're not the only one

    Who lives by night
    Lives by night
    We're only trying to chase away the sun

    We, we were so intimate
    You, you were so into it
    But they, they pulled you in

    And now that they're gone
    We're only trying to work out what went wrong

    You live by night
    Live by night
    But you're only trying to chase away the sun Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
