Counting Crows - Daylight Fading

Waiting for the moon to come and light me up inside
And I am waiting for the telephone to tell me I'm alive
Well I heard you let somebody get their fingers into you
It's getting cold in California
I guess I'll be leaving soon

Daylight fading, come and waste another year
All the anger and the eloquence are bleeding into fear
Moonlight creeping round the corners of our lawn
When we see the early signs of daylight fading
We leave just before it's gone

And she said, "Everybody loves you"; she said, " Everybody cares"
But all the things I keep inside myself, they vanish in the air
"Tell me that you'd wait for me"; I say, " I won't be here -
I want to say goodbye to you, goodbye to all my friends
Goodbye to everyone I know"

Daylight fading, come and waste another year
All the anger and the eloquence are bleeding into fear
Moonlight creeping round the corners of our lawn
And we see the early signs of daylight fading
We leave just before it's gone

(Repeat Chorus)
