Sleep quiet, lock the doors and stay the night.
Bomb shells and broken hearts fall far from sight.
Lights flashing far above me as I lay.
I never thought my life would end this way.

So take me away from here, the time is here.
A life all spent with you is closing in.
It's all I can see when I'm lost, oh.

Put out the fire and pretend to dream.
This city's sleepless but it's far from me.

So take me away from here, the time is here.
A life all spent with you is closing in.
Sorry, lord, I've lived my life away from you.
Soon I'll wake up standing there with you.
It's all I can see when I'm lost, oh.

    General Commentit´s not "the time is hear", but "the time is near"

    i really don´t understand what this song means...
    first, i think, the song is about a person, and then suddenly he sings "sorry, lord"...
    could someone explain me that? :)
