Before We Disappear

Album: Higher Truth (2015)
  • Time ain't nothing if it ain't fast
    Taking everything that you ever had
    And giving nothing in return
    But a cold bed in a quiet earth

    But there's a door in every cell
    A pearl inside of every shell

    How hard can it be
    To share your love with me?
    How hard can it be
    To rise with me each morning
    How long when it feels like
    We'll live forever I fear
    That time will hide the years

    Life ain't nothing if it ain't hard
    It'll show you who you truly are
    Knock you down when you get too tall
    Till you spun around in a free fall

    But somewhere out there past the storm
    Lies the shelter of your heart

    So how hard can it be
    To share your love with me?
    How hard can it be
    To rise with me each morning
    How long when it feels like
    We live for ever i fear
    Like we were never here
    So hold on tightly my dear

    I'm not one to waste my time
    Searching for something lightning
    Somewhere out there lies the stone
    Lies the shelter
    Of your heart

    So how hard can it be (how hard)
    To share your love with me?
    How hard can it be
    To rise with me each morning
    How long it feels like
    We will live forever
    But I fear
    That time can hide the years
    Like we were never here
    So hold on tightly my dear

    Before we disappear
