In the cold light of day
The colours all fade away
And we're left with monotomy
Nothing to say

Broken every bone for you
Burn myself alive for you
Fell down from the sky for you
But you're not the one for me

Dug myself a grave for you
Shot life in the heart for you
A lust for every part of you
But you're not the one for me

In the cold light of day
The colours all fade away
And we're left with monotomy
Nothing to say
In the cold light of day
The colours all fade away
And we're left with monotomy
Nothing to say

Lost myself in a dream for you
Palms raised to the stars for you
Laugh with every part of you
But you're not the one for me

I always looked out for you
Wanted life to be fun for you
You said I was the one for you
But you're not the one for me

In the cold light of day
The colours all fade away
And we're left with monotomy
Nothing to say

In the cold light of day
The colours all fade away
And we're left with monotomy
Nothing to say

Always in the...
Cold light of day
The colours all fade away
And we're left with monotomy
Nothing to say

In the cold light of day
The colours all fade away
And we're left with monotomy
Nothing to say

In the cold light of day
The colours all fade away
And we're left with monotomy
Nothing to say

    General Commentwicked band...amazing live as well!
    This song is great as it shows how you can feel so much for someone and yet it still isn't right. At least thats what it seems.
    The person who seemed perfect, is really not as amazing and 'perfect' as you had first imagined. :D

    General Commentthis song really reminds me of a couple i know, they were so in love then he realised that she wasn't the 1 for him. the realisation really hits him and he feels so bad about having to let her go but he just dont love her anymore eventhough he gave so much up for her.
    the song is sad but relates to alot of relationships people are in.
