dawn on the first day lyrics – devil sold his soul

dawn’s tired eyes make shadows the day’s first casualty
as you lose my eyes again, you fell too short, everything has changed
my trust fades

i cannot see the sun
first light never to be seen again
as i come to terms with another death of a close past
the final straw of a drawn out hate, well i unfold

half light arcs across the pavement, leaving it dull
the highest clouds on the edge of sp*ce converge,
i’ll do this on my own

why should i be grateful?
for a broken love, and a broken respect
when it tears me down,
i’ll get back up, and i’ll stand my ground

my trust fades, i cannot see the sun
first light never to be seen again
why should i be grateful for a broken love and a broken respect?
the final straw of a drawn out hate, well, i need it back once more

a shadowed face, how should i have done this on my own?
