lyrics

Oh, what to say, when the right words, fail to find the light of day
Oh, when everything is lost and mixed feelings seed a hurricane of our heart

Coz the trouble with you, is the trouble with me
As the weeks and months and years dragged on when we didn’t do our thing
Oh to lift a smile, do we have to raise the dead?
You know far too much regret hangs off your head

In the time that it takes, for a smile to cross the room
In the time that it takes, to be finally understood
In the time that it takes from being one of us to two
Is the time it takes to make the break to win at life, again

Stargazer, Storm chaser, bought for dust, sold for gold
But will the true cost ever be known?
Can I even begin, to comprehend what you must have been through
You’re still tunneling dirt, to escape the hurt

In the time that it takes, for a smile to cross the room
In the time that it takes, to be finally understood
In the time that it takes from being one of us to two
Is the time it takes to make the break to win at life, again

How far will you go?
This calls for drastic measures
When you’re so far away from pleasure
Can somebody mediate?
Coz your love comes across as hate
These pieces just don’t add up

Listen, listen to the quiet voice of your heart
Who’s saving who?

In the time that it takes, for a smile to cross the room
In the time that it takes, to be finally understood
In the time that it takes from being one of us to two
Is the time it takes to make the break to win at life, again

In the time that it takes, for a smile to cross the room
In the time that it takes, to be finally understood
In the time that it takes from being one of us to two
It's the time it takes the moon to rise, we can start anew, let's win at life again

Oh silent world, rest assured that love lies beyond words
