Speed Of Sound

  • Yesterdays, how quick they change
    All lost and long gone now
    It's hard to remember anything moving at the speed of sound
    Moving with the speed of sound

    And yet I'm still holdin' tight to this dream of distant light
    in that somehow I'll survive
    But this night has been a long one
    Waiting on a sun that just don't come

    Can I forgive what I cannot forget
    And live a lie?
    I could give it one more try

    Why deny this drive inside, just looking for some peace
    Every time I get me some it gets the best of me

    I'm not much left, you see

    And yet I'm still holdin' tight to this dream of distant light
    And that, somehow I'll survive
    But this night has been a long one
    Waiting on a word that never comes

    A whisper in the dark
    Is that you or just my thoughts
    I'm wide awake and reaching out

    It's gone so quiet now
    Could it be I'm farther out?
