And behind us the hellhounds are hot on our heels with a bite that's much worse than their bark.
When the face in the mirror grins back while you cry/ drop the blade and look up at the stars.
When my joints scream with pain/ from kneeling in vain/ With my last breath I'll reach for your heart.
Though my eyes may be swollen/ weeping for moments stolen/ Think it's time to start stealing them back.
You can take/ a grim view/ but just like a tattoo/ blood and pain can leave a beautiful mark.
Broken chains, broken spells/ bats do fly out of hell/ Blackness flees from the smallest of sparks.
Hear the peal of the bell/ There's a boat out of hell/ All it takes is your will to embark.
Lightening strikes/ thunder peals/ rain drops fall/ and it feels/ like we're outside, and Noah just sealed the ark.
Breathless, I run back across the bridge/ ignited by my own choices/ You call out to me about love's second chance/ or am I just hearing voices?
Judgment thundered, mercy fled/ was it something that I said?/ The sun turned black, the moon turned red/ I turned into the driveway.
These days life is so demanding/ expectations never stop/ once, I tried to steal a moment/ but somebody called the cops
We all need time like mother's milk/ but minutes weave a spider's silk/ Bound as I struggle to be free/ In someone else's urgency
We all need time like mother's milk/ but minutes come like spider silk/ Bound as I struggle to be free/ By someone else's urgency
Frustration/ aggravation/ alienation/ ruination/ libation/ agitation/ damnation/ change the station
Round and round and round we go/ Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo/ What God joins, we tear asunder/ Spinning circles pull us under.
Hey you kids! Get off of my lawn/ When I come back you'd better be gone
It used to be that buying time meant slowing down a little/ Now they sell it to me by the minute on my phone/ I've heard tell that stolen fruit tastes just a little sweeter/ Think I'll steal a moment and go off somewhere alone.
It used to be that buying time meant slowing down a little/ Now they sell it to me by the minute on my phone/
Bad news scrolls across the screen/Politicians make me scream/The sun is hot/My eggs are cold/The mirror says I’m getting old/ Gunshots fired/ another headline/ no time to read it/ I got a deadline/ join the block party/ on the freeway/ Can't a guy get a little leeway?
Bad news scrolls across the screen/Politicians make me scream/The sun is hot/My eggs are cold/The mirror says I'm getting old.
Bad new scrolls across the screen/Politicians make me scream/Sun is hot/Coffee's cold
Time lapse/You know those movies?/Squeeze a day into a minute, now ain't that groovy?
Counting my steps/Counting my breaths/Counting my heartbeats/Countdown to death/Pushing the limits/Push myself faster/Got to slow down/I'm a natural disaster.
Speed up the treadmill/here we go/where it stops/only God knows/keep in step/pick up the pace/gotta win the rat race.
Is there any room behind those piercing baby blues/where we can get away from all this racket?
Are there any secret places/we can go to find where grace is/all this frantic status chasing/has me on the ledge
Heartbeat races/Feels like thunder/Can't explain this spell I'm under/No one's lookin'/Let's slip away/Light a candle/curse the day.
Can you hear me/Are you listening/Sweat upon my brow is glistening/I just want for you to see me/Though you wouldn't want to be me.
Out of breath/Out of gas/Tail lights ahead/Gotta pass/Out of reasons/Out of rhymes/Deadline coming/Out of time.
Ready, set, go/everybody run/I think I heard the starting gun/Pushin' myself at a break-neck pace/chase that prize/win this race.
Every day we're livin' is a gift we're given
Every day we're given/makes this life worth livin'
Take my hand, walk with me/while the clock keeps ticking
For you I've been waiting/no more hesitating
Let the storm clouds scatter, I have found what matters
They say "Time is money," so let's spend it wisely
Let's race toward tomorrow, like each day is borrowed
Every heartbeat reminds me/there's a lifetime behind me/And my view of tomorrow's obscured by the smoke/from all of the bridges I've burned.
Every heartbeat reminds me/that a lifetime's behind me./Time to focus instead on the one that's ahead/and turn my perspective around.
Every heartbeat reminds me/there's a strong wind behind me/and I've learned that tomorrow is out of my reach/but I can take hold of today.
Every heartbeat reminds me/how fast time gets behind me/but I'd trade my tomorrows for just one more chance/to sit on the front porch with you.
Every heartbeat reminds me/how these fires have refined me/I'll be stronger tomorrow because today's sorrow/has taught me to treasure these times.
Every heartbeat reminds me/to stop looking behind me/I will reach toward tomorrow with a hope that's not borrowed/I'm drawing a line in this sand.
Every heartbeat reminds me/how my childhood defines me/but whether tomorrow holds joy or brings sorrow/comes down to the choices I make.
Every heartbeat reminds me/that one day you will find me/looking down from above on the ones that I love/but today they are here by my side.
Every heartbeat reminds me/like a drumbeat behind me/that life's cadence is steady, and I'm finally ready/to get back in step and walk on.
Every heartbeat reminds me/of the One sent to guide me/through all the tomorrows He allows me to borrow/all he asks for is all my todays.
Of the minutes behind me/But since time can't be borrowed, I'll purchase tomorrow/I'm not looking back anymore
Every heartbeat reminds me
Smile while you still have teeth :)
No more empty tomorrows, cause life is short.
Let each heartbeat remind me, that life is short.
Opportunity's endless, but life is short.
Be the change that I long for, cause life is short.
Love like there's no tomorrow
Love like there's no tomorrow
Make the most of these moments
Sing me a love song/but please don't take too long/
