Once upon a year gone by
She saw herself give in
Every time she closed her eyes
She saw what could have been

Well nothing hurts and nothing bleeds 
When covers tucked in tight
Finally when the bottom drops
She forgets to fight
To fight

And it's one more day in paradise
One more day in paradise

As darkness quickly steals the light 
That's shined within her eyes
She slowly swallows all her fear 
And soothes her mind with lies
Well all she wants and all she needs 
Are reasons to survive
A day in which the sun will take her artificial light
Her light

And its one more day in Paradise
One more day in Paradise
One more day in Paradise
It's one more day in Paradise
One last chance to feel alright
Alright

Don't pretend to hold it in just let it out
Don't pretend to hold it in just push it out
Don't you try to hold it in just let it out
Don't you try to hold it in hold it in

One more day in Paradise
One more day in Paradise
It's one more day in Paradise
One last chance to feel alright

Once upon a year gone by
She saw herself give in
Every time she closed her eyes
She saw what could have been
