Jet Black Sunrise - Gin Blossoms

Time passes like a dream
She suspends the worst of things
Tomorrow let's see
To hell with her
It's not hers to forestall
I've worked out paralysis
Undermining it all

Collapsing light
The night moves close to me

If you're gonna leave on your own
And take the whole world down alone

Life -- it's always just out of reach
Was it there at my parents' house
Maybe just down that street
But your mind
However lacking it feels
Still I'd trade you away today
For some feeling that's real

Collapsing night
the light breaks close to me

If you're gonna leave on your own
Life is in your hands
Yes, I understand
It's yours to take on alone
If you're gonna leave on your own
Jet black is the payback
This fine sunrise

When you're bored
So sick of your song
When whole worlds just disappear
Swallowed up and gone

When you're down
Down how far can you go
Raise the future in a wasted past
Everything unknown

Happiness
Means nothing to me

If you're gonna leave on your own
Life is in your hands
Yes, I understand
It's up to you all alone
I wish you wouldn't leave on your own
Jet black is the payback
Jet black is the payback
This fine sunrise
