Lyrics

Remember the time We were both eye to eye And we both knew the reasons why It seemed like we faced the world on our own Before we collide Can we just take a moment Collecting reflections of this And remember the paths that we chose Spring lied to us this year again I can't stand to face the fear again You could always laugh about those things It's enough to make a man feel sour Burning minutes every day by the hour Just to end up gone like everything else Let go of the pain and hold onto the rhythm It's consciously held back in you You're drowning a sorrow that's long been at rest The past is a hell, it can creep up inside you So let me remind you of this It's the reason your troubles exist Spring lied to us again this year And still, I can't stand to face the fear Will you always laugh about those things? It's enough to make a man stay humble Every day is just a new chance to stumble Just to end up gone like everything else If ever a time Comes around in the wheel To replace where we stand side-by-side We'll be ready and able to fly Away from the mire And the senseless decisions Of somebody's wasted desire Through the smoke and the wind and the fire Spring lied to us this year again I can't stand to face that fear again You could always laugh about those things It's enough to make a man feel sour Burning minutes every day by the hour Just to end up gone like everything else Remember the time We were both eye to eye And we both knew the reasons why It seemed like we faced the world on our own Before we collide Can we just take a moment Collecting reflections of this And remember the paths that we chose Spring lied to us again this year And still, I can't stand to face the fear Will you always laugh about those things? It's enough to make a man feel sour Burning minutes every day by the hour Just to end up gone like everything else
