One Day

Album: In a Perfect World (2013)
  • One day it's here and then it's gone
    How are you still holding on?
    How are you still holding on?

    You've felt this way for far too long
    Waiting for a change to come
    You know you're not the only one

    And life passes you by
    Don't be wasting your time
    On your own

    You always try to see yourself
    Through the eyes of someone else
    Through the eyes of someone else

    Too shy to say that you need help
    You and everybody else
    You and everybody else

    Oh, life passes you by
    Don't waste your time
    On your own

    As your heart gets bigger
    And you try to figure out
    What's it all about

    And your skin gets thicker
    As you try to figure out
    What's it all about

    One day it's here and then it's gone
    How are you still holding on?
    How are you still holding on? Writer/s: MARK PRENDERGAST, STEPHEN GARRIGAN, VINCENT MAY
