Can we open the pages
to remember a time
when the images focused
and the planets were aligned?

All the stars up above us
let us travel through time.
They erase all the distance
separating you and I

Now this glass will get me through the night
As the star blows over, I know I'll be alright

It's no surprise that the feeling has changed
and the years have slipped away
through the hands of time
Open your eyes cause' that promise we made
that our life would never fade
will never die

In the light of the morning,
in the dark of the night
We were balancing moments
on the thin edge of a knife

Can we dig up forgiveness
where we buried the lies?
Can we fill all the poison
from the hardest of goodbyes

It's no surprise that the feeling has changed
and the years have slipped away
through the hands of time
Open your eyes cause' that promise we made
that our life would never fade
will never die

Never die

There was a time when we felt light years away
Somehow we never let go or our pictures fade
There was a night when we let go of our fears
Somehow we never disappeared

It's no surprise that the feeling has changed
and the years have slipped away
through the hands of time
Open your eyes cause' that promise we made
that our life would never fade
will never die

It's no surprise that we all have changed
and the years have slipped away
through the hands of time
Open your eyes cause' that promise we made
that our life would never fade
will never die

Never die

    General CommentTo me it feels as if he's remembering an old relationship, one of that was close to ending many times, but they kept it going on the promises they made. Now he realizes just how many times it could have ended, and now admits that it was all a mistake, even if he did feel the way he did.

    "Can we dig up forgiveness, where we buried the lies? Can we fill all the VOIDS from the hardest of goodbyes."

    -The lyrics are wrong, he says "Can we fill all the VOIDS from the hardest goodbyes" not poison. This is my favorite line from the song, and really holds a lot of emotion. For a moment he seems to want to try one more time and let everything that went wrong before die, and maybe they could start over.
