Rolling far from where we met

Then on out where our sun sets

Time ticks us on past our regrets

Never stopping, move ahead


Seemingly I wonder why

Things just seem to be in spite

Feeling held back in my life

I think to ask if you're alike?


May I know what's on your mind

Could it be the loss of time?

Do you think of what may hide

Tucked behind what we'll find

As we move beyond our light

Into a world outside our minds?

It won't be an easy fight;

No one shares our state of mind

Know that what distracts your eyes

Will be why you fall behind

You will lose your chance to fly


Do you think I may be losing

Don't look down; it just brings dread

Hope God has angels to send

If he'd heard what we said

Shield us from the dead,

This wave of of brokeness won't mend

God, I ask that if and when

The depressing days will end

Will you see our downhill trek

Through what might cause us to bend

And should we draw our final breath

Please don't let us hurt again


Yet alas as you and I

Seemed to leave the sky behind

Unwittingly losing light

Abandoning the very sight

Of what can end these lowly times


We don't even seem to know

The path our ignorance had chose

Missing every chance to grow

We take pride in those we broke

Making sure the fire's stoked

Burning what is best left froze
