Lyrics:

It was when the ground was wet,
The concrete in puzzle pieces.
Initialed trees with hollow bark
And forgotten feelings.
The orange glow of summer sun
Soaked my body.
The holes in my shoes
Reminded me of the days when we'd dream
Of a bigger moment than this,
Of the who and the what and the when,
I've been missing you ever since then.

They say that we're young,
But I've been growing older.
And I've realized one thing
So I'll give you full disclosure.
Some days are leading to nothing,
But sometimes nothing's better than something.

Ooh my hands they are shaking behind
The shield that I've held up so high.
Ooh the colors are starting to blend,
The spinning is starting again.

The crowded streets scream.
They're vying for attention
In a sea of green.
The world stuck in apprehension.
"Let's live for the moment"
Is what they advise
But the moment is gone
By the time they realize.

Ooh my hands they are shaking behind
The shield that I've held up so high.
Ooh the colors are starting to blend,
The spinning is starting again.

Is this the best I'll be?
Won't you promise me
That I won't lose my way.
That you'll be here to stay.
If this is the best it gets,
I only have one request:
That I'll be good enough.
Will that be good enough?

Ooh my hands they are shaking behind
The shield that I've held up so high.
Ooh the colors are starting to blend,
The motion is blurred in my head.
And I'm trying, but I'm dying to feel the rain on my skin.
I've forgiven, not forgotten, and now it is going to begin.
The spinning is starting again.
