Dawn patrol is makin' the rounds
Been goin' at it since the sun went down
I'll be sleepin' it off from
Another night of tyin' one on.

The sun is risin' and I'm layin' low
Been compromisin' my get up and go
And I'll be burnin' it up
Till both ends of the candle are gone.

And I've seen too many smoke filled bars
Seems like they're never gonna set me free
You might not see the scars
But this nightlife's beatin' the daylights out of me.

Out on the town
Like the night before
Just when I thought
I couldn't go one more.

The sun sets down
I get up and do it again
Night lights are callin'
And I can't turn 'em down.

I've been revolvin' on
This merry-go-round for so long
And know where tomorrow starts
And when today'll end.

And I've seen too many smoke filled bars
Seems like they're never gonna set me free
You might not see the scars
But this nightlife's beatin' the daylights out of me.

--- Instrumental ---

Lord knows, I've seen too many smoke filled bars
Seems like they're never gonna set me free
You might not see the scars
But this nightlife's beatin' the daylights out of me.

Lord, this nightlife's beatin' the daylights out of me.

Lord, this nightlife's beatin' the daylights out of me...
