Concert version 2

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, tried so hard to find
Just for one moment, thought I'd found my way
Looked beyond the day in hand, I saw it slip away

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 wasted time
Looked beyond the day in hand to see what, what I find
Just for one moment, I thought I had my way
Now the reason's ceased for life, I saw it fade away

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 gets too late
