Lyrics for Daylight by Joji:

Verse 1
Wide awake, gettin' half-past zero
It's gettin' heated, so I leave the windows open
(Leave the windows open)
Preoccupied with the late night B-roll
Right now, laying here alone is Heaven
(Here alone is Heaven)

Pre-Chorus
And I've been a hero, helpless
I'm in Hell
And I've cried up and down in these hallways
Blamed myself

Chorus
Bad luck, I don't wanna be home at midnight
Sun's up, I don't really wanna fight the daylight
I don't care if you moved on
I'm not layin' in bed with a fucked-up head
I'm not layin' in bed with a fucked-up

Verse 2
Sun-dried on the backyard patio
Drunk eyes 'cause I didn't give it a home run
Yeah, yeah
You're hiding on the FM radio
I sing along just to sing my thoughts at someone
Yeah, yeah

Pre-Chorus
And I've been a hero, helpless
I'm in Hell (I'm in Hell)
And I've cried up and down in these hallways
Blamed myself

Chorus
Bad luck, I don't wanna be home at midnight
Sun's up, I don't really wanna fight the daylight
I don't care if you moved on
I'm not layin' in bed with a fucked-up head
I'm not layin' in bed with a fucked-up
