"Faster Days" as written by and Menck/chastain/borchardt/duffy....
Slow down girl
It's a funny old world
We've got everything but we can't have it
It's true you know we're passing through all alone

It wasn't so long ago
That we were afraid
Afraid that life would keep us waiting
Afraid that we would keep on taking
Back seat rides through our home town lies
Where every trip's a dead end street

And baby here we are
How did we get this far?
Before we closed our eyes and prayed for faster days

You try to escape
The person you are
Though we change our scene and keep on trying
We can't ever take back the years
Of love we gave, love we made
And all the love that brought us here

And baby here we are
How did we get this far?
Before we closed our eyes and prayed for faster days

And when everything's given, forgiven, forgotten
Forget that we lost the trail
If there's love that we've started
Don't leave it half-hearted
Like unsolicited mail
Have we finished our past?
Did we finish our present?
Don't wash it away like it's dirt
If we hide from the truth we'll get hurt
Don't lock it all away

I know we were young
With so much to learn
We thought we understood the contradictions of love
The innocent generations lost in sand
One day we'd understand
Though we may run we cannot hide

Cause baby here we are
How did we get this far?
Before we closed our eyes and prayed for faster days
Closed our eyes and prayed for faster days
We Closed our eyes and prayed for faster days
Closed our eyes and prayed for faster days
