Forever and A Day

Lyrics

Nothing never lasts forever, watch it go away
Rest assured it will land in a better place
Yesterday's our only mirror, seems so far away
Tomorrow's holdin' on for another day

When the smoke clears, and there's nothing there
Seems I won't come out from it's own despair
Powers that be mostly be so far away
Waiting is so long forever and a day

Turn the pictures into dreams, too tired to close my eyes
Threw out the trash, threw stones in the water so I could hang them out to dry

Way to learn or fail to lead, angel gets her wings
Tickets to the sold out show gonna buy our way
So I can see whats right, through a paradise
Crowd the tiers, gonna wash the years away

Light a torch, never set it down
Burn and burn though this whole town
You get burned bitter, look the other way
Waiting there so long forever and a day

In disguise I hope and pray, his nose is on the ground
I have lived through the aftermath, and hoped to make a sound

Turn the pictures into dreams, I'm tired to close my eyes
