We were born without time
Nameless in the arms
Of a mother, a father, and God
When the world would wait for us
A thousand years in the crush
Of our eyes, fearless, in awe
So quietly, we?d fade into sleep
With nothing on our mind

Hoo, hoo, hoo~

And then we long to be loved
In the rush, we become
Some things we thought we'd never be
We were surprised by our heart
Left weary and scarred
By the nights spent feeling incomplete
And all those evenings swearing at the sky
Wishing for more time
All the promises we broke when we tried
Just wastin' our time

Hoo, hoo

We get old all at once
And it comes like a punch
In the gut, in the back, in the face
When it seems someone cried
And our parents have died
Then we hold onto each other in their place
And I feel the water risin' around us
Maybe that's okay
Yeah, I feel the world changin' all at once
I guess it'll be okay

Hoo, hoo, hoo

And we all had one hope
There was someone lookin' down
When we return our bodies to each other
And the ground
