Sunshine been keeping me up for days
There is no night time, it’s only a passing phase
And I feel pretty, pretty enough for you
I felt so ugly before
I didn’t know what to do
Sometimes is all I feel up to now
But it’s not worth it to you, ’cause you gotta get high somehow
Is it destruction that you’re required to feel?
Like somebody wants you, someone that’s more for real?
Sunshine been keeping me up for days
There is no night time, only a passing phase
And I’ll feel pretty another hour or two
I felt so ugly before
I didn’t know what to do
I felt so ugly before
I didn’t know what to do
I felt so ugly before
I didn’t know what to do
Ugly before
