It feels that the first day we tried to wash it off
I don't know where she is, these visions never rest.
Your cut's where it don't bleed
Still crying for a way out
You reap but you don't seed
It's hard to put the blame on someone else.

Walk slowly for a moment, you don't have to tell me why.
August lasts forever.
Maybe we could leave our lives
If only for the moment, you don't have to tell me why
August lasts forever.

The day and I collide
As time takes it's time.
I'm trying to forget
Forget to hold on
This feeling through my head
I would have picked a name for her by now

Walk slowly for the moment.
You don't have to tell me why
August lasts forever, maybe we could leave the lies
If only for the moment, you don't have to tell me why
August lasts forever.

Someone's down in space today
You won't have to change your name
Everyhting the way it was
Embrace and go your way
Fingertips and tags of light
You'll never take away
That night
Everything's the way it was
When you become the page

For the moment

For the moment, as the autumn rain begins.
August lasts forever.
Let this summer season end.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful and amazing.

    I think it is about wanting to move on from a relationship that you just can't seem to forget about.

    General CommentThis song isn't about moving on from a relationship - its about having a miscarriage and losing a child.
