Never See the Sun Rise

This song is by Dayseeker and appears on the album Origin (2015).

Not meant to be a father on this day
I'm not a bad man, yet cruel fate
Has ripped my daughter away
Not much for praying but I'm on my knees
Pleading for answers to this senseless passing
Why would someone think the best time to die
Is before they have the chance to open their eyes?
Don't say another word to comfort me
I'm not okay and I don't need blind faith

The more I'm trying to let go
The more that it's killing me
Why am I burying my child when
I'm wishing it was me in that grave?
I should not be burdened with this pain
It's not fair to us, I'm giving up
Oh I died inside when I knew
She'll never see the sun rise

My daughter will never see the sun rise
Taken away before she had the chance to open her eyes
This is not God working in mysterious ways
This is the work of a coward
Who's either dead or won't show his face

I let that cold wave cover me
What's the point in gasping for air
When I don't even want to breathe?
Time will not heal these wounds
I'll grow old and she'll still be fast asleep
What am I supposed to do now?
How am I expected to understand when I'm still
Reaching for those little hands to let know
That this is just a bad dream and she'll be there when I wake up

She'll never see the sun rise, no she won't
I know that you're at peace
But I won't look for you in the clouds
I'll keep you in my heart till the sun burns out
