A Daily AntheM

Album: David Cook (2008)
  • Break your neck for some substance
    This is temporary sanity, an exercise in vanity
    So long to the ordinary day wrought with fictitious tales
    Of how there's any other way
    Hold on to anything at all
    It's a long way down between the summer and the fall
    If I told you that you're everything,
    Would you sing along?
    Would you sing along?

    It's a daily anthem
    Would you sing my song,
    At the top of your lungs?
    And we'll all sing along,
    We'll all sing along

    [Chorus]
    It's a half-baked blessing
    For the lessons I've learned,
    Never deserved.
    And we'll all sing along,
    Oh we'll all sing along

    Now the verses take hold,
    A gentle undercurrent or more years to grow old
    Say goodbye to the cold
    And try to begin everything, there's life

    As we sing your daily anthem,
    Would you sing my song,
    At the top of your lungs?
    And we'll all sing along,
    We'll all sing along

    [Chorus] Writer/s: DAVID COOK
