Between this world and the next
I want to locate a bit of you
Will I feel it
Or gaze an emptiness
Who guessed it could be so unfinished
A never-ending infernal cross
Yes yeah where is that bliss
The ordinary life I knew that was so exquisite.

You long for the flowers
I get more from the hours spent
Man instead of free of descent
A day without argument

You said you long for the flowers
That you remember
A song sang from the shower
How I used to bend words
You ask me where did all that go
And I have no answer
I admit that I'm giving up hope
And wandering if it can survive

One day will we just begin again
One day

Will we begin again

You said you long for the flowers
That you remember
A song sang from the shower
How I used to bend words
You ask me where did all that go
And I have no answer
I admit that I'm giving up hope
And wandering if it can survive

Don't think I take lightly
The one thing we feel
I wish for surviving
But time, but time
It steals like a thief

Woah, Don't think I take lightly
The one thing we feel
I wish for surviving
But time, but time
It steals like a thief

    Love this song. I think it is about being in a relationship that is starting to go stale. You want to make it work but time makes people change. You argue, you fight and you start to question why things aren't like they were in the beginning of the relationship. Love 311, great lyrics here
