This is a cloud where life disappears.
A space in a space in a space of mirrors.
Dimension of time gets lost in the heart.
And love never dies when one is apart.
The afternoon sun is still hanging on.
In hopes that it's warmth will last till the dawn.
The gravity's leaning towards turning around.
While I'm on my knee's trying to make up lost ground. (1st)
But crying out loud's not making a sound. (2nd)
You look to the east, you look to the west.
Without being able to fly from the nest.
The sleep in your eye's leave's you stuck in the sand.
You've wanted to play, but don't join the band.
There are echo's of memories I don't understand.
But never the less, they are my command.
The teacher is learning with each newborn day.
When you make a mistake you always will pay.
A walk in the dark where you're lost in the past.
Where you missed the mark and found it can last.
You endlessly question just what's it about.
You hope and you pray, but you're so filled with doubt.
You're broken, alone, and wishing you'd died.
It has been decades since you've even tried.
How can a loser believe he can win.
When the one that he lost won't let him back in.
