They say the world's an eventful place
I don't want to know
That I should speak my mind
Pushing by
And tears in my eyes
Or is it still time to get into

I'll go on til the winter gets me
In a letter somewhere
And and ocean between us
Have I come to the point where I'm loosing the grip
The swing of things
When she glows in the dark
Of this breathtaking beauty
There is a worldful out there
But given time I'll get into
Yes, when she glows in the dark and I'm struck by the sight

What lies I have told
Have I come to the point where I'm losing the grip
The swing of things
