lyrics

I’ve been all night tossing and searching for solutions
amenable to both to keep above retribution
we sure gave them a helluva show
but the lights came up, now it’s time to roll

we used to laugh long at the foolish souls
kept their heads in the sand,
kept on digging their holes
but time happens, and nobody stays the same

now we’ve no one but ourselves to blame
for letting in the cold and not feeding the flame
and waiting for a break that never came

instead of living in denial, what we never could be
let’s agree on the lesson and set each other free
to wander through the forest, stay clear of the road,
learn to fend for ourselves when the night wind blows

so you stay in Denver, and I’ll head on home
wherever that is, I’ve always made up my own
oh oh is all I can say

now we’ve no one but ourselves to face
a chance to move ahead, instead of running in place
just look into the mirror and state your case,

we went where no one had ever been before,
danced on the sky, floated on the floor,
it could have been a bust, but it was so much more

so I’ll be gone by morning,
when you wake up,
open up the doors and pour yourself a cup
yeah, time happens, it's happening to us
oh time happens, just look what it did to us, to us
