here you go
If you fear the angels above while you sleep
Then I'll be the blood, you paint on your door
Your dream is a worry that nothing will keep, but
time is a story and there will be more
Your dream is a worry that nothing will keep,
but time is a story and there will be more
and death in disgrace can seduce anyone
that needs to believe there’s judgment at hand
or God may be kind and see you like a son, but
time is a lion when you are a lamb
Or God may be kind and see you like a son, but
time is a lion when you are a lamb
The years see the best of intentions and greed
they come without shame, they'll leave you with some
men become old when their hurt becomes need, but
time is a lover and your time is young
Men become old when their hurt becomes need, but
time is a lover and your time is young
The sun is a soldier, out crawling the hills
setting fire to every house that’s in view
lighting the ruin of my hope and my will
till I’m like a shadow and I’m falling on you,
crawling on you..
Oh you know how I do..
So sleep here with me and I’ll keep you close
for now while i try to live up to you
You can’t see the challenge of this I suppose, but
time is a dare and I’m trying to
You can’t see the challenge of this I suppose, but
time is a dare and I’m trying to
time is a dare and I’m trying to ( 3x )
