Hanging from complacence
Seeking a renascent heart
I shall wander far from everyone
My wife, my kid, my home

The warden of time, a prisoner of choice
To those empty canals from a middle aged voice
Regret has burrowed down to the most selfish of bones
And I've scorned my beloved to no fault of their own

A world away yet still close to fear
A new skin to touch to help me disappear

We drive down to the end where the lovers meet
Rain on cobblestone, under lights like fire
Between where the songs fade and grief hides the laughter

Time is a burden to the future we seek
All motives are lost in decisions we make
The past is a widow and she lets us pretend
Fate is a consolation when we know it's the end
I'm so sorry
