For every stupid thing that happens to you
Every single thing I say
Did you stain a waist line into gray
Every little thing just creeps up on you
A bumpy road
I could still reach them
And it takes my breath away

And I still want
We always wake before we fall
I always know that when we wake up
You re mine
Liquid the time that holds us down but
I can barely slumber
When does that time go before our eyes?

Every stupid thing that happens to you
Simpler things are said
Not so hard to see
But it seems so out of reach

And I still want
We always wake before we fall
I always know that when we wake up
You re mine
And I still want
We always wake before we fall
I always know that when we wake up
You re mine
