Linkin Park – Shadow Of The Day lyrics

[Chester Bennington]

I close both locks below the window.
I close both blinds and turn away.
Sometimes solutions aren't so simple.
Sometimes goodbye's the only way.

And the sun will set for you,
The sun will set for you.
And the shadow of the day,
Will embrace the world in grey,
And the sun will set for you.

In cards and flowers on your window,
Your friends all plead for you to stay.
Sometimes beginnings aren't so simple.
Sometimes goodbye's the only way
.

And the sun will set for you,
The sun will set for you.
And the shadow of the day,
Will embrace the world in grey,
And the sun will set for you.

And the shadow of the day,
Will embrace the world in grey,
And the sun will set for you.

[Guitar solo]

And the shadow of the day,
Will embrace the world in grey,
And the sun will set for you.

    I believe it's written abut when chester was drinkin heavily and it's written about his lifetime. Has he lost three of his best friends when he was younger, and he trid suicide and he divorced his first wife. He never felt wanted accepted or included. The sun will set for you part was written to all the people in his life who he had lost as they never made it to sunrise.

    I think this song is inspiring to keep on living your life, and that you need to keep on pushing through even when life look gray. This is what music is made for, to inspire and create. I hope that this music did for you what it did for me-Let me now that God is always there-and will always watch over me, even when I'm scared and alone.

    I found meaning in this song to describe losing someone. My brother died in a car accident last month and every word in this song rang so true to this. His friends all left cards and flowers and we all pleaded him to stay. It was the truest lyric of somtimes goodbye's the only way. It touched me on a new level. The sun set for my little brother that day and the shadow of his day embraced us all in grey. I love this song. R.I.P. Chris sanchez.

    I also agree with Sage15:.
    I close both locke below the window, I close both blinds and turn away: hes forgetting about the war.
    Sometimes solutions arent so simple, sometimes goodbyes the only way: war lasts more than a few months, and in the process you will lose some soldiers, but its the only way to win.
    And the sun will set for you, the sun will set for you: everyone does have their moment of glory.
    And the shadow of the day will embrace the world in grey: the highlight, or death, of the day will make the world unhapoy, where color means cheer and greys mean unhappiness.
    Pink cards and flowers on your window, your friends all plead for you to stay: this is taking place at a funeral, the window is the coffin or grave, flowers and cards are put on it, and your friends want you to come back, to not be dead.
