  • The countless eyes dotted in the night sky
    I speak the language, several hundred words
    Cloudless day, thunderous night
    Among companions carry my name

    The life we lead came gradually
    Who keeps the time?
    A bitter lime, do us fine
    To kill the taste

    Turn deaf ears on all that we don't wanna hear
    Cause for travel has come again
    At this early hour, I tell your wife a story
    She looks outside, doubles over laughing

    The souls you love, the place you live
    Those country houses
    A change of heart tore us apart
    Oh, what a ride

    Every chance you have
    All the love and light
    All the joy and grace
    Don't be upset, don't you think it out
    You know what thinking does
    to love's shine and love's light

    All together world
    I'm hanging on
    It feels right, yeah

    I saw a strange thing
    Reminds me of faces
    Upon a stormy sky tonight

    All the younger kids, gone away to sleep
    In the days to come, I'll do the same
    At this early hour, I'll tell your wife a story
    She looks outside, doubles over laughing

    But the life we lead came gradually
    Who keeps the time?
    And a bitter lime, will do us fine
    To kill the taste Writer/s: JAMES HAMILTON LEITHAUSER, MATTHEW FREDERICK BARRICK, PAUL C MAROON, PETER M BAUER, WALTER R MARTIN
