We have done this before
I feel it in your breath
And in this room once more
A smell of living death

I've known you since the dawn
I've known you all my life
Can't stand to be this torn
Neither you, my midnight light

I won't, but I consent
You linger in my dreams
And nice to see you dance
Dance on my stitched seams

You've known me such a lie
You've known me all your life
Torture my inner sight
So fuck you, midnight light

In the brightest of all days
In the brightest of all days
I see you in our shadow
In the darkest of all nights
In the darkest of all nights
You are the guiding light

And if I try to touch you,
You run away
And when I sleep and forget
You haunt me all day

Our lifeline ends right here
It's either that or this
Just let your darkness shine
And give me that last kiss

Wish I'd known you before
Never knew you at all
Thought I could never score
A shitty life, this small

In the brightest of all days
In the brightest of all days
I see you in our shadow
In the darkest of all nights
In the darkest of all nights
You are the guiding light

Thought love could be much more
Thought we were good at this
You touched me like a whore
Your dead meat taste like piss

In the brightest of all days
In the brightest of all days
I see you in our shadow
In the darkest of all nights
In the darkest of all nights
You are the guiding light

In the brightest of all days
In the brightest of all days

In the darkest of all nights
In the darkest of all nights

Nineteen eighty-four

In the brightest of all days
We have done this before
In the brightest of all days
I've known you since the dawn

    Lyric CorrectionHere are some corrections I noticed the original lyrics got wrong.

    I've known you since the dawn,
    I've known you all my life,
    Can't stand to feel a storm?
    Neither you, my midnight life.

    I won't, but I consent,
    You linger in my dreams,
    And nice to see you dance
    Does all my _____ seems.

    You've known me since the night,
    You've known me all your life,
    Don't turn my _____?_____
    So fuck you midnight life.

    In the brightest of all days
    (In the brightest of all days)
    I see you in my shadow.
    In the darkest of all nights
    (In the darkest of all nights)
    You haven't got a life.

    Our lifeline ends right here
    It's either that or this,
    Just let your darkness shine,
    And give me that last kiss

    Wish I'd known you before,
    Never leave you alone,
    Though I could never score
    A shitty life this small?

    In the brightest of all days
    (In the brightest of all days)
    I see you in my shadow.
    In the darkest of all nights
    (In the darkest of all nights)
    You haven't got a life.


    Thought I could be much more,
    Thought we were good at this.
    You touch me like a whore,
    Your _____ tastes like piss.

    In the brightest of all days
    (In the brightest of all days)
    I see you in my shadow.
    In the darkest of all nights
    (In the darkest of all nights)
    You haven't got a life.
