lyrics

peeping through the hole in my soul
at the happiness and the loneliness
fading dreams get out of control
and we talk too much and we tried for words

and when reason ends
there's no reason to die for words

so don't follow me, don't call on me
it takes too much to hold on
you run like quicksand through my head
so walk away, don't talk to me
I put my faith in you but
it came right after me instead

that is the reason
that's why our time is over
this is the deadline for my memories
that is the reason
why we can't see each other
the view is fading with our eyes too blind for tears

good times were too good to be true
and the times we've had were the times we've had
we tried, to find the game to be cruel
and try we did and cry we did, yeah
and when I cried baby, I cried rivers over you

so stay with me, don't fade on me
I thought I need this vision
there's a body on the floor that looks like me -
no words to say, no faith to praise
no hope, no good intentions
I've been sitting like a toy staring restlessly
oh that's why

that is the reason
that's why our time is over
this is the deadline for my memories
that is the reason
why we can't see each other
the view is fading with our eyes too blind for tears

that is the reason
that's why our time is over
this is the deadline for my memories
that is the reason
why we couldn't see each other
the view is fading with our eyes too blind for tears
