Church – Life Speeds Up lyrics

The clouds in the sky are all rushing by
A stare's just a backwards glance
The years and the days are all melting away
Yet you still won't take a chance

But life speeds up, don't you know, don't you know

The push and the throb, the threat of the mob
The crack's not a secret this time
The mouths and the doors, now I can't shut anymore
Keep running, you're falling behind

The world spins alone, the weight of it groans
I get dizzy just turning the page
The air holds us down and we're stuck on the ground
Trying to slip off our age

Come to the window come to the door
Given under my hand given under the law
I gave you everything you still want more
They gave you some mad forgotten war

Now it's time to slow things down
Because I told you life speeds up

Tell me how it happened did it hurt did you cry
Did you ever feel yourself falling out of the sky
Did you ever lie awake and wonder why
Did you ever fall asleep and dream that you died

We grind to a halt and we start again
We come to a corner but it's only a bend
And all those broken promises they never end
Who cares if it's mad when it's only pretend
