when too much is enough

Off the back beat of a bad decision
Autumn seeks me but summer’s her season
And if your heart don’t speak
Then you’re too weak on your feet

Back to base I ran
Like a wild horse this evening
Everything happens for a reason
Take it all in but the sun can be deceiving

I made it out but I may be leaving 
Wide awake I held the world as she was sleeping
A scar itself is a heal
But on the inside of doubt we’re still bleeding

I lost my way trying to do what I can everyday
Suffered ship wrecks in a brethrens chase
Sadder days have taken place 
As I rested eyes on a heavenly face

Back on my feet and my journey knows no sleep 
Sandals strapped on but on and on travels this bleeding
Head first I lurched from the beaches 
After my chin she reached to beseech me 

On the back seat of a bad decision
If I told you I’ve changed would you believe me 
Autumn seeks me but summer’s her season
And if your heart don’t speak 
Then you’re too weak on your feet 

When too much isn’t enough
When daylight fades 
And you’re suddenly struck
What happens when too much isn’t enough
I made it out alive but it’s hard to look up
