  • 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
