"The Course Of Human Life" as written by and Arthur Carl Enders Joseph Ryan Marro....
It caught us by surprise
It always waits until the timing is right
Till we're sure enough we can be safe
Well here's a surprise for my fate
You know I'm gonna give up
And you know who I date

And we've come so far on useless space
Out of everyone everywhere,
We can say we've found our own way

So you like to say surprise
I know you always wait
Till you find a way to buy some time
But plans always kept you away
But now you're finally here
And I was just gonna go on my own
I didn't even catch your name
Take a seat, make yourself at home

We've come so far on useless space
Out of everyone everywhere,
We can say we've found our own way

    General CommentThis is one of the coolest ones from The Room's Too Cold. How can no one have commented on it?

    I think it's just about the way things work in our lives, how it's just about 'finding your own way' and the way it hits you just when you least expect it.

    "i love the instrumental at the beginning of this song. it's perfect."

    the only thing better is listening to the track 'Baby Blue' and the transition between the two songs

    General Commenti feel like this song is about a relationship and how it has gradually formed, but one person is always keeping a distance either because they're afraid or because they just have other things going on. Then the other person who is persistent and keeps at trying to be with the other person finally breaks through and they finally are together or finally come to a realization of what they want "out of everyone, everywhere; we can say we've found our own way." ............one of their best songs.
