Lyrics


There is a place that I need to go
They might say impossible but it happens
all the time

Leave you behind, I just want to know
Call it future, I don't ask how because
I am here, right now

I could end it all with a grin
It's so easy when you're a child
When your actions don't have to rhyme
And your thoughts are running crazy

Where's the sign that says I will fail?
Sign to live by, or to ignore
Void of context, so illogical
I turn to you for guidance

And to receive this vision of thine
Would be quite unreal but it's happening
Feel it sting

Then when you see the future looks fine
even though there's nothing more to obtain
I will not complain

Don't weep, I'm by your side
Taking you for the ride
Can't stop to wait for another time
(not metaphorically)
listen to reason and rhyme
rhyming do
trying to keep open wide

I could end it all with a grin
It's so easy when you're a child
When your actions don't have to rhyme
And your thoughts are running crazy

Where's the sign that says I will fail?
Sign to live by, or to ignore
Void of context, so illogical
I turn to you for guidance

Scenery, pretty sight
Every story in the blue, starry night
Fly those worries away
You won't see this kind of thing every day
So late now, but you will stay awake

I won't believe what I'll see, will I?
Nor understand it, and I won't try
though I can't help but to wonder why

And to receive the truth in my face
In my room, in a car, or some other place
all alone

Then I can cry my eyes out of tears
rid my mind of nightly fears, clear the
heavy stone

And to receive you

You are the one, I won't let you forget!

Scenery, pretty sight
Every story in the blue, starry night
Fly those worries away
You won't see this kind of thing every day
So late now, but you will stay awake

I won't believe what I'll see, will I?
(And to believe I'd have to recall, what it was for, if at all it was for anything new)
Nor understand it, and I won't try
(And to conceive it, I'd have to try, never mind, let go, I really don't care, I know you)
though I can't help but to wonder why
(though I wonder why)
