lyrics

LOST AT DAWN

i don't want to fear tomorrow
i don't wanna wake up like a loaded gun full of sorrow
from dreaming of the past
those dreams they find me in the morning
they push my back up against the wall with no warning
fire at first light
but i don't want to fear tomorrow

the houses where i used to live
the people and the love they used to give
when i was young
they've left me lost at dawn

the pale light creeping through the curtain
lifts the memories out from my eyes and leaves me hurting
in the cold sunrise
but i don't want to fear tomorrow

the houses where i used to live
the people and the love they used to give
when i was young
they've left me lost at dawn
they've come and gone
and i am lost at dawn
when i was young
i am lost at dawn

i don't need to lose my yesterdays
but i don't want to live my life stuck on the past
there was no golden age
