Life Slips Away

We move forward
And lose ourselves
Life slips away
Life slips away

I used to gaze up at the sky
Back at myself and wonder why
I have so much and yet I
Feel so incomplete

I used to wish for better days
Reach out to hands I couldn't save
I used to know that fate
Guides the will in me

But what if we've wasted all our lives
Waiting for a night like tonight
That may never come?
(that may never come?)
And what if we're always haunted by
A moment that we've left undefined
Just to let this go
(just to let this go?)

So trusting,
You're all but deceived by your senses
Blinded,
You're walking a path
With your eyes downcast
You're rusting,
Dying to leave these defenses
Prying
Like hell at this cage
But it holds steadfast
So trusting,
You're only a slave to your footsteps
Blinded,
Retracing a ring
'Round a dream that's passed
You're rusting,
Drying like leaves on white fences,
Finding
That everyone's gone
And your die is cast, it's cast


I won't just gaze up at the sky
Back at myself and wonder why
I have so much and still I
Feel so incomplete

I won't just wish for better days
Reach out to hands I couldn't save
I won't believe that fate
Guides the will in me

For life slips away
Right through my hands
I will not waste one more last chance

What if we've wasted all our lives
Waiting for a night like tonight
That may never come?
(that may never come?)
And what if we're always haunted by
A moment that we've left undefined
Just to let this go
(just to let this go?)
