I'd like to say
I make good use of my time while you've been away
And it's true, I've been at my piano everyday
Thinking of you


(ahhhh)

They talk around
I hear them whsiper
It's the funniest thing
They think you're gone forever
I know the truth it's just
Getting hard to believe it


And they all tell me it's over
Even the stars are alligned
And I

I follow the sign so clearly
And still I fall in
Quicksands pulling me down
I follow the sign so clearly
And still they catch me
The quicksands pulling me down

I'm not the same
I can't sleep nights
And now I'm calling your name when I do
And yet without you they say I
Get on better, and better, and better

When they all tell me it's over
I'll damn the gods until the stars are alligned
And I

I follow the sign so clearly
And still I fall in
Quicksands pulling me down
I follow the sign so clearly
And still they catch me
The quicksands pulling me down


(ahhhh, ohhh)

Well look at my life and look at my face
Can't you see my heart bleeding down my sleeve
So you're holding my hand and holding my heart
But I just want to feel a breath inside me so I can breathe
Somewhere in the distance I get to spark a grace
And hold onto to something that makes me feel like I'm alive
It's never too soon, it's never too late so I start screaming out
I see your face I see your hand reaching out and I yell at you and I say


I follow the sign so clearly
And still I fall in
Quicksands pulling me down
I follow the sign so clearly
And still they catch me
The quicksands pulling me down


I follow the sign so clearly
And still I fall in
Quicksands pulling me down
I know you can feel me rising
And I'm on fire
Keep on pulling me out

(Ahhhh)

Look at my life and look at my face
And look where I've come to get to this place with you
Being here to sit and lay at your feet and rest in your arms
And listen to your heart beat


(Ohhhhh, Ohhhhh, Ohhhhh)
