Everyone it seems
Has somewhere to go
And the faster the world spins
The shorter the lights will glow
And I’m swimming in the light
Chasing down the moon
Deeper in the water
The more I long for you

Most of what you see my dear is purely for show
Because not everything that goes around comes back around you know
Holding on too long is just fear of letting go
Because not everything that goes around comes back around you know
One thing that is clear it’s all down hill from here

Love in your hand clevarly disguised
All the promises of stone crumble in the light

Most of what you see my dear
Is worth letting go
Because not everything that goes around comes back around you know
Holding on too long is just
Fear of wanting to show
Because not everything that goes around comes back around you know
Not everything that goes around comes back around you know
One thing that is clear
It’s all down hill from here
