Sun Rise, Sun Set
Opening my eyes to a new day…
Sometimes takes the pain away
Making me feel all right
And then comes the night
Taking the beauty away
Making me pay
Then the sun comes again
And I have my friend
We get along together
But it doesn’t last forever
Because then comes the night
And nothing is right
There is a fight
And I lose my bright future sight
It’s hard to believe both are you
It’s hard to believe you are untrue
One moment you’re nice
Then, the next I think twice
I love and hate you at the same time
I wish only the sunrise was mine.
