Lyrics
How many years now of anticipating
I can't help hating the waiting and waiting
Believing that time will alleviate all I'll
Or in the long run create some asylum

I've heard all the brilliant advise
I learned that everything comes in a price and that the
Truth is harder
I was wrong
We're going to lose each other for so long

A sad waste, that bittersweet aftertaste
I don't want to face up the facts
I know the truth is harder, that right or wrong
We're going to lose each other for so long

Cause at the moment I'm boarding my plane
I don't know when I'll see you again
And our feelings may just fade away
I've been avoiding those questions, questions

There'll be a calmer time when everything's organized
Everything's simplified
No one persuading me to seek some prize that isn't
Found anywhere
Just karmic injustice here but who do you sue?

We're going to lose each other
We're going to lose each other
We're going to lose each other, so long

I hope we can handle the yearning and learning
Cause we can't keep these wheels from tuning

It felt right that tender respite
Before the warm interlude drifted from sight
And now we lose each other, now we lose each other
We're going to lose each other for so long
So long

Cause at the moment I'm boarding my plane
I don't know when I'll see you again
And our feelings may just fade away
I've been avoiding those questions, questions

I've been avoiding those questions, questions
I've been avoiding those questions, questions,
Questions, questions
