In The Wake

lyrics

I've been down before
But not like this
Though I know it's nothing more
Then what it's always been

A fleeting
Moment in time
Just passing by
As the seconds die

And when it goes
No shape is shown
And when it's done
It's fucking done

No Holding out, no holding on
No waiting round' for that time to come

But don't let it go without asking
You'll never know if you were right or wrong
And if you hope that you're passed it
Then it wasn't there all along

And now I'm up
Like I've never been before
Though I know the time will come
When I'm left wanting more

Cause it'll go
In a matter of time
Like it did before
Just passing by

And when it goes
No shape is shown
And when it's done
It's fucking done

No Holding out, no holding on
No waiting round' for that time to come

I never noticed it passing
Until it was already gone
And in the wake of it's absence
I learned to carry on

One by one they slipped away
Seconds into minutes into days
As they fade and wash away
I question all the choices that I made
But the answers that I seek
Are never that easy to reach

So I won't hold out
I won't hold on

I found my balance but still I know
I could fall unless I take it slow
So I'll take my time with me
And use it wisely as I go
