Every man accounted for, but lost in something tangibly unclear
I thought about the things we'd lost and won
Like a record store full of rhymes and candy when Sheena's ready for guns and rock n' roll
I confess I was falling asleep with a whirlwind at my door

Always to the east our eyes are looking at the dawn
Formally requesting, but the answers never come

Oh, a hundred years could pass
What is forever?
Living proof of boy and girl
We've got each other

I told' em all once and they said I was right
But you never get strong if you win it without a fight
Oh, spit it out on the ground, we'll reach the other side
Well, she packed up her life to head down to the city
When the ticket man asked she just smiled 'I ain't comin' back!'
Hey driftwood, will you lead me to the sea?

Always to the east our eyes are looking at the dawn
Formally requesting but the answers never come

Oh, a hundred years could pass
What is forever?
Time is non-existent for today as long as we're together
Oh, and every moment comes just a little faster
Living proof of boy and girl
We've got each other

In a moment here we all may die
Know one now is quite aware just why
Summer nights that we vowed to remember turned to nightmare
Father Time has not appointed us for ever
Listen to summer nights that we vowed to remember turn to nightmare
Father Time has not appointed us forever

One last time and then I cannot defy you
Onward, can we find our way back home?
It's time and still I cannot defy you
Onward, can we find our way back home?

    My InterpretationThis is one of my favorite songs by Children 18:3, however, I don't exactly know what it means!

    In my interpretation:
    'I thought about the things we'd lost and won' He is looking back at his life, thinking about things past.
    'I confess I was falling asleep with a whirlwind at my door' He realized he could have done more than he did, he was asleep when a whirlwind of happenings was just at his door (or something like so).

    'Always to the east our eyes are looking at the dawn, Formally requesting, but the answers never come' She says we live asking questions that may have no answer (yet).
    'Oh, a hundred years could pass, What is forever?' I think it is obvious what she states, what lasts forever in this life?

    'In a moment here we all may die'
    'Father Time has not appointed us forever' WE WILL NOT LIVE FOREVER.

    If you have a better interpretation of this song pease post it so I can see!
