TITLE. LYRICS

Concert version 1

Twenty four hours

So this is permanence, love's shattered pride
What once was innocence, turned on its side
Grey cloud hangs over me, marks every move
Deep in the memory of what once was love

Oh how I realised how I wanted time
Put into perspective, knew I had to find
Just for one moment, I thought I heard him call
Looked into the day in hand, there's no-one there at all

Excessive flash-points, beyond all reach
Solitary demands for all I'd like to keep
Let's take a ride out, see what we can find
A valueless collection of hopes and past desires

Oh how I realised how I hated time
Put into perspective, thoughts I had to find
Just for one moment, I heard somebody call
Looked into the day in hand, there's no-one there at all

Now that I've realised how it's all gone wrong
Got to find some therapy, this
treatment takes too long
Deep in the heart of where sympathy held sway
Got to find my destiny before it slides away
