End Times 04:22
I heard the news, it made me feel so cold A friend in need is needing some hope to hold The end is near so live today Live today What is set and what is left to chance? Ask the questions til there’s none to ask And the voice you hear says live today Live today End times, goodbye to all we know Sunset, nothing left to say I will call you friend Sunrise, brings another day We will meet again Goodbye to all we know We will meet again

Dry sand as the tide is rolling in There’s just something about it Makes me feel like the past is my home Picking up shells and skipping stones There’s just something about it Makes me feel like the past is my home sweet home If I could be with you tonight, staring out the window What good is a memory if you keep it to yourself? If I could be with you tonight, staring out the window Searching through the night sky Looking for the brightest star Uphill on a track that’s wearing thin There’s just something about it Makes me feel like the past is my home The sunsets as the view shows everything There’s just something about it Makes me feel like the past is my home sweet home If I could be with you tonight, staring out the window What good is a memory if you keep it to yourself? If I could be with you tonight, staring out the window Searching through the night sky Looking for the brightest star If I could be with you tonight What good is a memory if you keep it to yourself? If I could be with you tonight, staring out the window What good is a memory if you keep it to yourself? If I could be with you tonight, staring out the window Searching through the night sky Looking for the brightest star Searching through the night sky Searching through the night sky Looking for the brightest star

Cover my face with both my hands I feel a weight I can’t withstand There is nothing more to this There is nothing more Be on guard Faith is hard, hard to chase Descry my face, feel both my hands There is no weight we can’t withstand There is so much more to this There is so much more Roads will be, but paths are only where we’ve been You and me and there is nothing in-between Dreams are free but all dark thoughts incur a fee Faith is hard to chase
4.
Elbows to the table Head to my hands, eyes closed I grapple with the things I don’t understand And no-one knows Will the weight of the world on my shoulders ever be over? Time’s running out, patience is wearing thin, can’t you see? I’m holding up the walls and the tide’s coming in, I’m feeling weak Will there ever be or has been before, is there something more? I fumbled, I dropped it and I lost it And now I’m ashamed I’m wading through the carnage of consequence Don’t do the same Faith is hard to chase
5.
Cast aside and left alone Can you hear me? Helplessness became my home Can you hear me? There must be peace, there must be hope Can you hear me? There must be love I’ve never known? Who will heal this broken soul? Can you hear me? My despair is all I know Can you hear me? There must be peace, there must be hope Can you hear me? There must be love I’ve never known Are you free or are you bound to something? You can seek but you might not like what you find Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me

Cast aside and left alone Helplessness became my home Who will heal this broken soul? My despair is all I know Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone Before I met you I never thought I needed anyone
7.
What you wanted and what you needed became your everything Like The Fifth in full symphony set with no one listening We near had it all We were close but we were so far away We near had it all You don’t feel that I’m to blame but I am more than you understand You don’t feel that I’m to blame but I am more than you understand The sorrow filled you body and the angst was undeterred There was beauty in that broken heart but The Ninth was never heard We near had it all We were close but we were so far away We near had it all You don’t feel that I’m to blame but I am more than you understand You don’t feel that I’m to blame but I am more than you understand
