We Used to Be (Demo)
I can't tell if you care where I am anymore
I can't tell if you care ... anymore
Isn't everyone nearer? We're always missing-you-apart.
We used to be closer than aliens and mars
Tied at the heart of the thing we were myths made larger than life
We used to be closer than two forms entwined
No matter how far, a love strong and blind
How easily your distant shape
To a loving heart had lied
And said you were here
Well "used" could be yesterday, or tomorrow yet
But if you can't listen to me (we can't listen), we've nothing to bet
When we gamble our futures on this two-pair flush in hearts
I hear you're not much into gambling,
You're more into daring-do and leaping through today to find unknown
But love, was there never a time when constant could seem round?
We'd let all their static hands fall trembling on their throtles
While we change inside, from death not hide
Find a path twixt the flames and the snow --You know ...
If out on your journeying, you hope by distance to be freed,
You'll soon find escapists form a most hopeless of creeds,
'Cause freedom's no place,
No co-ordinates in space,
It's people behind you,
And things deep inside you
... just like home
You want to soar
And maybe "we" can't
And I hope you will fly someday,
On whoever's wings
But we used to say we would jump, hand in hand
(Hand in hand)
And see what it feels like to
Maybe fly (and)
Maybe fall (but)
Surely to live
We used to be falling, but could we jump now?
We seem to have perched on the edge, the world holds its breath.
As Henry once said only those who
live, who love,
cast their eyes above,
Can earn the right to their death.
If you'd put your hand now in mine, we'd jump till we fly
'Cause everyone ends someday, but I'm gonna die
And only in flight, my love, do we
