Watching my window I was led like a child
As the roadway lamplights
Misguided my mind through the night
A shadow of limits
We were racing the rain
My hands held the wheel
My eyes tried to hold their place

there must have been a time
when I thought that you were watching
it had to be when my senses lost control
I thought I'd slipped away
I thought I could still feel us moving
it must have been a cloud
no bigger than a man's hand

Every reason I risk my life
To come back to you
Is locked behind your door
You're my immunity
Outside I watched you burn
Heavy hearts were bleeding
A cry for help, a familiar voice
My melting hands streaked the glass

as I walked away
I wondered what had really happened
had I run out of time
did I push myself to far
As my last step fell
I felt my hands upon the wheel
Had I come back to life
or did I ever leave at all
in higher lives
we seem to be
always a moment too late
we're past the time
when we looked on
now we're
the ones who help to set the sun
this time for real
I locked the door behind me
my mind was still a wreck
from what I saw
For when my hands are still
I'll recognize the message
never again will my senses lose control
in higher lives
We seem to be
Always a moment too late
we're past the time
when we looked on
now we're
the ones who help to set the sun
