Some Days You Brought the Sunshine, Some Days You Brought the Rain

I can’t revel in a joy that saw you in the fire 
cause joy should never be destroyed by hatred 
I remember those words rolling down your body 
before we tortured ourselves as one 
and fell into a darkness that felt just like a panic     

so my heart turned inward and said farewell to romance 
and the cars on the street they all whisper your name 
and my senses they shutter at the feeling         
and i'm not being stubborn in looking for forgiveness 
but i'm so stubborn in believing that I’m still right 
and don't tell me that I never tried to fly with you 
and don’t tell me I never held your kindness  

But I grew tired as you grew fierce 
and I wished into the night 
and you grew fierce as I grew tired 
and I fell into a bottle 

it's so hard to walk into my bedroom 
so I turn off all the lights and stumble through the blackness 
and I'm looking into sorrow and circumstance of life 
those who draw me into battle should never cross their heart  
those who draw me into battle should never cross their heart  
those who draw me into battle should never cross their heart 

so i'm living with the broken scent of failure 
and a handbook for withered souls 
and I'm looking back and wondering how deep it really went 

’cause I grew tired as you grew fierce 
and I wished into the night 
and you grew fierce as I grew tired 
and I fell into a bottle 

when the whiskey boils in my veins 
and the smoke occupies my body 
i'll release a little darkness from our past 
and I’ll wake a little lighter in the morning     
yeah I’ll wake, lighter in the morning     

‘cause I grew tired as you grew fierce 
and I wished into the night 
and you grew fierce as I grew tired 
and I fell into a bottle 
and I never fell out 

some days you brought the sunshine, some days you brought the rain 
some days you brought the sunshine, some days you brought the rain 
some days you brought the sunshine, some days you brought the rain 

but I grew tired as you grew fierce 
and I wished into the night 
and you grew fierce as I grew tired 
and I fell into a bottle 
and I never fell out 

some days you brought the sunshine, some days you brought the rain 
some days you brought the sunshine, some days you brought the rain 
some days you brought the sunshine, some days you brought the rain
