I wonder why
we are the way we are
yes I wonder why
we are the way we are
and why
we only love each other from afar

this is how we are fighting
this is how we are fighting
time
time

you spend your days
watching the door
yeah you spend your whole life waiting
but you don’t know what for
you have everything you need right here
still you want more

oh this is how we are fighting
this is how we are fighting
time
time

well I didn’t come here
looking for a soul
and I’m tired of watching dust
collecting on a bowl
I’m a spirit trying to be human
I’m just a spirit trying to be human

but I’m thinking this is how we are fighting
this is how we are fighting
time
time

you hold on to yourself
you’re afraid that you might
get left behind

and so you hide your eyes
you’re afraid that the light
will make you blind

but it’s time
it’s time to shine

yes it’s time to believe in what you know
time to believe in what you know
time to believe in what you know
and you don’t need strength to be strong
time to believe in what you know
no you don’t need strength to be strong
time to believe in what you know
time to believe in what you know
time to believe in what you know
time to believe in what you know

time to believe before you go
