Return To Zero – Violent Days lyrics

Was it me you were gunning for
I looked around for the sound as I hit the floor
Thought I saw you standin' by the door just before you slipped away
Bad days only lie ahead, we shot it out and our love was left for dead
Would you rather it were me instead, is this the only way
What can I say, these are violent days, violent days
Love slips away, these are violent days, violent days
And so we find that we can't go on
Pack a bag and you head out on the run
Move by night to elude the sun and avoid the light of day
It wasn't love we were running from
We gave in to what we thought was a different drum
Take a look at what it's become, it's sad but it's the truth
Is anybody old enough to remember when
This division and doubt won out and the loneliness began
Some say it's just the turn of the dice
Others say we should be willing to sacrifice
Think it over but don't think twice, don't let it spoil your day
