We tried to stay young
by chasing the sun
You blink for too long
the swans sing a song

And all that I've lost
And all that I've won
Don't mean nothing more
when you open
your eyes and they're gone

After all we've been told
We’re still flesh and bone
And life's worth much more
Than silver and gold

And all that I've lost
And all that I've won
Don't mean nothing more
when you open
your eyes and they're gone

And how can it be
that we'll never see
The first day of the spring
And the last autumn leaves
So lost in my mind
I tried to stay strong
If wounds heal in time
Then tell me why it's so hard to move on
Hard to move on
I'll never move on

I curse the mistakes
That we’ll never make
The pictures of trips
That we’ll never take
And all of these thoughts
They keep me awake
Hang on to your heros
Before it's too late
Cause there’ll come a time when you
Open your eyes and they're gone
Someday they're gone
Some day they’ll be gone

And I'll still be here
Chasing the sun
