  • Dirty Sunrise creeping in
    Broken bottles gilled within
    The room is black
    The blinds are drawn

    I don't remember anything
    What I've done where I've been
    Another night has come and gone

    This is not for me no
    This is not for me no
    This life is not for me no
    This is not for me no
    Anymore

    The devil smiles and laughs at me
    Says you'll be back just wait and see
    You know I've heard this all before

    And I say
    You can keep your high life in the hills
    Your cocaine lies and whiskey thrills
    I don't need you anymore

    This is not for me no
    This is not for me no
    This life is not for me no
    This is not for me no
    Oh oh oh

    The only thing that makes me whole again
    Is to stand right here before you in the sun oh
    I'll keep running til the very end
    For the life I've lived is not the life I want

    Dirty sunrise creeping in
    Broken bottles gilled within
    In a place I don't belong

    This is not for me oh
    This is not for me oh
    This life is not for me oh
    This life is not for me oh
    Anymore yeah

    You can keep your life
    I don't want anymore yeah
    I'm gonna leave it all behind yeah
    I'm gonna leave it all behind yeah
    I don't want no more don't want no more
    Yeah yeah yeah Writer/s: MYLES KENNEDY, SAUL HUDSON
