"Staring at the Sun" as written by and Atkinson/robson/potashnick....
Daylight on my shoulder
Makes me feel alive
You kept me standing in your shadow
And it's a cold cold place to hide

I'm running away from this messed up place
I'm breaking free, yeah yeah

I'm tired of staring at the sun
Can't stand the way you burn my eyes so I can't see
Stealing every breath I breathe
You push me into overdrive
And I don't need this kind of high 'cause now I'm done
You took everything while I was staring at the sun

I know you won't let me
Just turn and walk away
You tie me up kick me around
Trying to kill my dreams and break me down
But I won't hang around

I'm running away from this messed up place
I'm breaking free, yeah yeah

I'm tired of staring at the sun
Can't stand the way you burn my eyes so I can't see
Stealing every breath I breathe
You push me into overdrive
And I don't need this kind of light 'cause now I'm done
You took everything while I was staring at the sun
I was staring at the sun

Daylight on my shoulder
I know its time to run
Yes I know its time to run

I'm tired of staring at the sun
Can't stand the way you burn my eyes so I can't see
Stealing every breath I breathe (stealing every breath I breathe)
You push me into overdrive
And I don't need this kind of high 'cause now I'm done
You took everything while I was staring at the sun
Yeah, yeah staring at the sun
You took everything while I was staring at the sun

    General CommentThe chorus should be "I don't need this kind of high 'cos now I'm done, You took everything while I was staring at the sun" not "I guess that I was just too blind to overcome. You can't see anything. When you're staring at the sun."

    General CommentI swear the chorus is different to what is stated

    i hear

    I'm tired of staring at the sun.
    Can't stand the way you burn my eyes so I can't see.
    Stealing every breath I breathe.
    You push me into overdrive.
    But i don't need this kind of fight
    cuz now im done
    You took everything while i was staring at the sun
