about

This songs is about lost opportunity that haunts you... and knowing when to step away. If at first you don't succeed, sometimes you have to cut losses...

Steve heard so many instrumentation parts that he was trying to express that let to Mike playing a low breathing keyboard and swelling the volume by hand as he played. The false start in the beginning of the song was captured from the session, and Glenn cleverly created the sound of a halting tape reel during the mastering process. A straight forward rocker with a great deal of hidden creativity from all involved...

lyrics

I didn’t take it – My chances are slipping away
They’re floating like clouds on a very sunny day

I should’ve faced it – In case it should come round again
You just never know cause it happens now and then…

So many questions with answers that I never knew
They weigh on my mind but I always make it through

I wouldn’t say it – Just let it run wild in my head
I’ve heard it before but the words have all been said…

It’s time to be leaving – Because time keeps on slipping away
It doesn’t have to be – It doesn’t have to be that way…

I didn’t chase it - but still it keeps coming around
Tied to a boulder that always drags me down

And I can’t break it – Though God knows the way that I’ve tried
I’m running away but there’s no place left to hide.

It’s time to be leaving – Because time keeps on slipping away
It shouldn’t have to be – It shouldn’t have to be that way…
