If all the luck in this life has all run
If all my faith is undone, I had none
To track them down and take them back where they belong
Could that explain why I’m here, Is that the reason why I came
And why I feel this way, I feel, I feel, I feel, I came apart here

Stole a look away from you eyes
Stole a look and finally paid your price
Tethered fresh, trampled thoughts, look for me
Look at this face, everywhere there’s new mistakes
And underneath it all, takes its toll, grudgingly
But with you in here, everything seems ok

If every moment could have you in it, I know where all my faith had gone
If any moment should take you away, I know I’ll always have this one

If every moment could have you in it, I know where all my faith had gone
If any moment should take you away, I know I’ll always have this one
This one, this one, this one

Of any moment, ever stolen, don’t take this one
As my heart runs empty now I realize
What I want would never surface otherwise
I hope your heart runs empty and you realize
Hold on to this hope, hold on to this hope
Hold on to all my hope, and my faith
Cause I don’t wanna leave, I don’t leave from your life
Because I wanna see, that nothing is faded, that nothing could change it,
That nothing is faded, that nothing could change it
Of any moment

    General CommentThis song is beautiful.
    I'm not exactly sure what it means, but the lyrics are amazing nonetheless.

    Today I was thinking about them doing a live show, too.
    And I wondered how they would, because they'd have to get every different musician they have together, and I just wonder if it would work.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful, it makes me cry. To me, its so hopeful and hopeless at the same time. It makes a certain thing in my life not seem so hard. I'll still have those moments.

    General CommentWhen performed live, Daniel Victor performs all of the songs himself, once in a while the original singer might perform if they are around.

    General Commentagain this seems to have a marriage of spirtuality and lost love which comes together beautifully to weave a tale throughout the album, and make beautiful music i really like the way this is sang it makes it even more sad and painful then it already is

    General Commenti think this song is about two people who cant be together - maybe an affair. he tries to hold on but she doesnt want to, so he waits til her "heart runs empty" for the other guy so that she'll realise what they have.

    i love the line: "If any moment should take you away, I know I’ll always have this one". it's like one happy moment can make all the pain worthwhile. i can relate to that.
