Waiting for the clocks to spin around in circles, winding themselves up
In ways you've never seen them left before your eyes
If the ticking stopped, then we could see the moments once along the way
And maybe get the chance to gaze up at the sky

If only we could learn just how to breathe
And know just how to feel
Surreal, but still ideal enough for me
A future you can't steal

When you wake up from your disenchanted dream of what could be
I hope you realize what's living in the sea
But if we just pretend somehow ? just to give ourselves some time ? free

Listening to life in motion, creaking with the weight of our white lives
The ones we tell ourselves, to finally believe
Holding onto your emotions, all you think you know
But in your eyes, you struggle to recall a time you weren't deceived

If only we could learn just how to breathe
And know just how to feel
Surreal, but still ideal enough for me
A future you can't steal

And when you wake up from your disenchanted dreams of what could be
I hope you realize what's living in the sea
But if we just pretend somehow ? just to give ourselves some time ? free
