Metallica - The Day That Never Comes Lyrics

born to push you around
better just stay down
you pull away
he hits the flesh
you hit the ground
mouth so full of lies
tend to black your eyes
just keep them closed
keep prayin
just keep waiting

waiting for the one
the day that never comes
when you stand up and feel the warmth
but the son shine never comes

no, the son shine never comes

push you cross that line
just stay down this time
hide in yourself
crawl in yourself
you’ll have your time
god i’ll make them pay
take it back one day
i’ll end this day
i’ll splatter color on this gray

Waiting for the one,
The day that never comes,
When you stand up and feel the warmth,
But the sunshine never comes

love…is a four letter word
and never spoken here
love…is a four letter word
here in this prison
i suffer this no longer
i’ll put an end to this, i swear
this, i swear. the son will shine
this, i swear
this, i swear

    1. its four letter word not fallen word
    2. awesome song, i got the CD right away and cant stop listening
    3. if you think they are faggots and losers dont listen but dont criticize what other people like
    4. I happen too like robert, mainly because i listened to him back in Suicidal Tendancies and Ozzy Osbourne’s band
    5. so much like the old stuff and i gotta say, fuck yeah, keep bringin the metal guys

    also the lyrics were not inspired by a father son relation, they were inspired by layne staly from alice in chains and how he passed away from dryg abuse and metallica wondered why a rock god would do that to himself so they made this entire album in rememberance of the rock stars and metal singers who passed away from drug abuse

  9. metal.head Says:

    metallica rocks
    f*** all you haters
