Every second is a forest to me
That only leaves a trace
I get lost in the bushes and reeds
Before I get to save it at all
At all
Every motion gold
Every moment old

Under your palms
Wrapped up in thought
You are always tired or fast asleep
Drifting in and out of song
Every fiction that I hold
Keeps me in the dark
But I am ten feet tall
I don’t worry at all

You get caught in the love you know
Never want to leave
From what you need to grow
Way too caught up
This cruel unbelievable world
I won’t get it go

(Every motion gold
Every moment old)

And when I feel the blood pushing out
The loneliness and doubt
The fever-stricken noise
Keeping this apart from what I know about
The time I’m living for
Touched by the spreading dawn
Feeling like I’ve been reborn
But I won’t leave it alone
I will show you eternal love
