Time
Time here all but means nothing
Just shadows that move across the wall
They keep me company but they don't ask of me
They don't say nothing at all

I need just a little more silence
I need just a little more time

You send your theives to me
Silently stalking me
Draggin me into your war
Would you give me no choice in this
I know you can't resist
Trying to reopen a sore

Leave me be I don't wanna argue
I just get confused and I come all undone
And if I agree well it's just to appease you
Cause I don't remember what we're fighting for

You see love a tight thorny thread
That you spin in a circle of gold
To have me to hold me
A token for all to see
Captured to be yours alone

I need just a little more silence
I need just a little more time

For courage to pull away
There will be hell to pay
Deeper you cut to the bone

Leave me be I don't wanna argue
I just get confused and I come all undone
And if I agree well it's just to appease you
Cause I don't remember what we're fighting for

Time here all but means nothing
Just shadows that move across the wall
They keep me company but they don't ask of me
They don't say nothing at all

Leave me be I don't wanna argue
I just get confused and I come all undone
And if I agree well it's just to appease you
Cause I don't remember what we're fighting for

    These words are difficult to accept when you are the one they are adressed to. It's a state of mind that express distance taken by
    a love one. You can only take yourself the distance to respect these feelings. Thank you for these words, this beautiful music and your beautiful voice. Sometimes we have to come to a conclusion even if there is
    no explanation.
