Lyrics/Vocals by T.J. Phoenix
You know it’s true
we keep asking
what is it
that keeps us going
why do we
get up each time
every day
we recite the story
the story of time
Time is all we have
Time is all
we will ever be
I wish I
could make you see
as we drift
on the tides
the waves roll in and out
we sigh
once again
searching for the note
the sound of song
the smallest of refrains
for time
drives us on again
it’s all we have
it’s all there is
to keep us alive
and so
we keep getting up
once again
so that maybe
maybe just believe
there’s still a world
where we can be
hand in hand
our lives in harmony
I don’t think
it’s that much to ask.
