about

This is another track that I intended to use for a new album, but I was very pleased with the way it turned out, so didn't want to "sit on it".

lyrics

We’re waiting for something to happen
We’re waiting for something to change
We look for a sign in the heavens
But everything stays the same

They told us that we weren’t forgotten
And our time would be coming soon
But promises ending with nothing
Is all we’re looking forward to
So now we’re through
Go, let the wheels turn ‘round

This is the time
If this is the place you’re happy to be
I will be there
Watching it all go down
If you’re the one who’s running to me
I will be there

Maybe a little bit crazy
More than a little bit strange
This is the tag that you’ll carry
If you’re not gonna play the game

They told us that we weren’t forgotten
And our time would be coming soon
But promises ending with nothing
Is all we’re looking forward to
So now we’re through
Go, let the wheels turn ‘round

This is the time
If this is the place you’re happy to be
I will be there
Watching it all go down
If you’re the one who’s running to me
I will be there

Oh, keep it all in
You just need to sit in silence
Only open up if you agree
This is where it begins
Tip-toe around the sirens
That wait for you to fall
When you can’t hold back at all
And it’s time for you to call the tune

This is the time
If this is the place you’re happy to be
I will be there
Watching it all go down
And if you’re the one who’s running to me
I will be there
