I'll make you a promise today
That this family I'll never betray
Life sometimes fades away

Night is upon us
And I hope that this one never ends
The face of a woman
Whom I loved before
I was a man
I am making some time
And I'm honest in pain
We can live 'til the end
You know you're on my mind
And I promise that I'll see you some day
So for now I'll just pray

Can't believe it's over

Life just gets in the way (2x)

Your eyes were upon us
There are no words for how much that meant
This trace of my mother
And not enough days that we spent
It was my selfish pride
And you taught us
There was no one to blame in the end
Bitter feelings reside
And it caught us
Before that day we set everything straight

Can't believe it's over

Life just gets in the way (2x)

(chorus:)
I remember the words that you said
Hearing them as I sat by your bed
Now life just gets in the way

Feeling the same everyday without you
Can't seem to find my way
Cold sweats in the night wake me from sleep
Thinking you're allright

Life just gets in the way (2x)

(chorus)

I'll make you a promise today
That this family I'll never betray
Life sometimes fades away (2x)

    General CommentThis is a song about Dave DeRoo's (The bassist) mother. She passed away some time before the album was made and this song is probably a song about never letting her memory go and looking to make good on a bad situation
