Expensive restaurants and cheap hotels,
You can forget 'til it makes no sense,
Black black nights and promise rings,
You can never get your mind back,
Back to the way it was,

When you were daylight for me,
When the sky was so black you couldn't see,
Such a tiny star caught in a great big sea,
You were daylight for me.

Digital alarm clocks that crawl inside my ears,
It's a cold day in any city,
Seems shit is hitting,
A big fan in the sky,
And the war is only beginning,
You're still afraid of the dark,

But you were daylight for me.

    General CommentNo one has commented on this song?! Such a shame. It's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard! I think it's about someone who's always there for you, be it a family member, a great friend or a lover. And near the end, it just seems that much more important of a relationship because the person who is being the daylight, is afraid of the dark. I believe only love can conquer a fear like that.
