Every moment can’t remain and every life won’t stay the same
With time comes a layer of rust and our bones will turn to dust
Everyone will fall away and every season is built on change
With time the paint will peel and all sense will lose its feel
Every cloth will start to fray and every night will become day
With time a mold will form and what’s cold can become warm
Every love can’t always stay and the dead will soon decay
With time we’ll all be gone but how you lived can live on

    General CommentThis song is beautiful and heart-breaking at the same time. It is so simple and elegant. I love the spoken word...then the build...the the powerful screaming vocals. Really hits home. Bravo.
