1. Daylight on my  shoulder,       makes me feel alive,

                          D                         A

    you had me standing in your shadow,

C                                               G

    and it’s a cold, cold place to hide.

G                        A                                       G

    I'm running away from this messed up place,

                           A     A7

    I'm breaking free, yeah, yeah !

 

D                                           A

    I'm tired of staring at the sun,

                                                     Bm

can't stand the way you burn my eyes, so I can't see,

               G                      C - G

stealing every breath I br…..eathe.

D                                        E

    You push me into overdrive,

                                             G

but I don't need this kind of high, ’cause now I‘m done,

                A                                   C       G        D

you took everything while I was staring at the sun.

              D

    you'll tie me up, kick me around,

                   A

    trying to kill my dreams and break me down,

C                                G

    but I won’t hang around.
