I’d Like To Think

I’d like to think this is neverending,
that this is more than light I’m bending
That I am more than breath and fingerprints
The hourglass is cracked and frozen,
The sands of paradise were stolen
Now we count on rusted fingertips.

I’d like to think this could last forever,
any battle, any weather,
I’d believed but I know better now.

Impractical things we say,
improbable moves we make,
Our hearts they won’t break,
but they will surely take a beating.

I’d like to think this is everlasting,
more than shadows that I’m casting,
If I blink I could be missing out.
The second hand is creeping slowly, the minute hand it cuts right through me
out of time, I’m out of memories.

The love that we make tonight,
the loves that we leave behind
The love, if you lose it,
then you can depend on me my friend.
Impractical things we say,
improbable moves we make,
Our hearts they won’t break,
but they will surely take a beating.

When you're here, you're not here
You're like the new moon,
which is no moon at all,
you are no moon at all.

Impractical things we say,
improbable moves we make,
Our hearts they won’t break,
but they will surely take a beating.
The love that we make tonight,
the loves that we leave behind
My love, if you think you're looking at the end,
then look again
And if you think you’re looking at the end,
then look again
And if you think you’re looking at the end,
then look again...

I’d like to think this is neverending
That this is more than time I'm spending
If I did I'd be pretending.
