Lately, lately we haven't been at our best
And maybe, maybe we had it coming for a long time

Everybody hopes that life is like a dancer's pirouette
With grace we've dodged each conflict and decision that we met

Everybody tells themselves that they must be justified
They do what they do because they're trying to get by

Maybe, maybe we all are selfish
But maybe, maybe it isn't over yet

Everybody hopes that love is like a prairie fire
That sweeps across the field consuming it all
Everybody hopes that love will never fade or flicker
That it's pure as the air we breathe

We've made mistakes that we can't change
But there's still time to start again
There's still time to start again
There's still time to start again

    General CommentWhen the music stops and Adam starts saying "there's still time to start again," I get goosebumps =)

    It's still so crazy to me how he changed his voice to baritone for the albums after Like The Exorcist... and Who Will Survive... If you listen, you can still tell it's him. He has such an amazing voice.

    hell mongoose-- Who Will Survive and What Will Be Left of Them is another good CD of their to listen to all the way through. There's an AMAZING final track on that CD and all the songs flow together so nicely.

    Genius! =)
