He lays alone cries on his own
For horizons he'll never reach
And all of those dreams are washed on the beach.
She's drowing in oceans of shackled emotions
Going round and around in her head
While out on the streets people forget
That it's love you want
Love you want
Love you want.
She speaks of hoping he speacks of fighting
And tells her that they will come through
'cause he wants to feel the shock of the new
People that hurt you and they burn you
With acid the falls that falls from the sky
While out of the silence your voice says why ?
If it's love you want
Love you want
Love you want
It's a matter of time a matter of time
But you're asking why oh life makes you cry?
Turn moss into roses and blood into wine.
It's a matter of time a matter of time
But all of your past still plays on your mind
And maybe tomorrow you'll live by design
It's a matter of time.
This isn't giving this isn't living
Oh just days that pull you apart
And tears turn to rust that fall on steel hearts
So swallow youe maybes and cradle your babies
Tell them that they will come through
Their gonna feel the shock of the new
And if it's love you want
Love you want
Love you want
It's a matter of time a matter of time
But you're asking why oh life makes you cry?
Turn moss into roses and blood into wine.
It's a matter of time a matter of time
But all of your past still plays on your mind
And maybe tomorrow you'll live by design
It's a matter of time.
