lyrics

With the Speed of Love (Memories Become Traces of Tears)

Everything fades, love fades,
The pain of betrayal
Crippling fear and the bitterness of loss,
The tug and pull of lust

Nothing is permanent all things fade with time
How cruel is time
To make us forget joy
How kind she is to ease our pain

I’m as quiet as a cup
That’s about to overflow
What’s a kiss worth if it’s stolen
Count 5 seconds let the fear in

What do you fear, all things fade with time
How cruel is time
To make us forget joy
How kind she is to ease our pain

My shadow looks like the age-rings on tree
There’s an invisible line that separates you from me

Oh I’m so tired
Won’t you pick me and lay me down
And help me forget,
Help me forget about time……
