Sweeter Song

for C. and D.) I talked to you about five minutes today Tomorrow, if we’re lucky, try for ten Seems like one of us is always Headed in the opposite way En route to his own destination Time don't care much for us -- Time turns a deaf ear -- Time tunes out the debate between right and wrong But as we come to the chorus And know the end is near, Realize we coulda been singin’ a sweeter song I walked past the closed door of your room And hoped to hear the secrets stored in there Though the inner-voice we talk to To penetrate the gloom Is something that we’re never willing to share Time don't care much for us -- Time turns a deaf ear -- Time tunes out the struggles of weak and strong But as we come to the chorus And know the end is near, Realize we coulda been singin’ a sweeter song I sing my sad song from my underworld: From this yawning chaos, let love live And if I should turn around, And ill forces strike you down, For my singing, let the stones forgive No, Time don't care much for us -- Time turns a deaf ear -- Time tuned out our conversations all along But as we come to the chorus And know the end is near, Realize we coulda been singin’ a sweeter song Yeah, know we coulda been playin’ a sweeter song.
