  • I sleep the day away
    Giving you all I can
    Ready to reach new lows
    Dying to wash my hand

    You're the one, you're the one
    That froze the sun
    Say you love me as you pull the trigger
    Better today rather than tomorrow

    Heaven is in the air
    Hiding behind your blinds
    Heaven is right out there
    Leaving me here behind

    You're the one, you're the one
    That froze the sun
    Say you love me as you pull the trigger
    Better today rather than tomorrow

    The one, you're the one
    That froze the sun
    Say you love me as you pull the trigger
    Better today rather than tomorrow

    You
    You should enjoy the weather
    Soon
    You'll burn with what you've done

    You'll hurt no one
    You'll hurt no one
    You'll hurt no one

    I sleep the day away
    Giving you all I can
    Ready to reach new lows
    Dying to wash my hand

    You're the one, you're the one
    That froze the sun
    Say you love me as you pull the trigger
    Better today rather than tomorrow

    The one, you're the one
    That froze the sun
    Say you love me as you pull the trigger
    Better today rather than tomorrow Writer/s: Tracy K. Bonham
