lyrics

(1)
I float on by in the slipstream, breathless /
And what's occurring in't something I'll get with /
I seem to flounder, the progress is slow /
A leaf in the wind blown from trees then it snows /

Crunched underfoot, too often for my taste /
We earn stripes, pain hardens your mind-frame /
Toughen up, redefine sane and cope with it /
Even if your hearts blood soaked, fuck the broken bits /

Adjust and cloak the rips /
Contain the pain amongst the notes I've written solely for myself to notice, switch /
And change my focus quick /
See inside to know I'm different, I spose that's it to gain respects my only wish /

Coz I'm not meetin' my approval, keep the standards high /
And you should stand aside, you've a lesser chance than I /
My only plans to write, find love and sample life /
Before the shifting sands of time put out my candles light /

(2)
Coz I can feel time flying by, and what the hell have I achieved? /
A whole lot of nothing, still thinking where'd I'd like to be /
At least I didn't quit when that thought was circling /
The trap door I swerved to change course, was it lurking then? /

Huh, absolutely. What a path to choose, we /
Rue what could have been, when, in fact, that's the beauty/
The secret to the words I've written down /
The lessons learnt change you, some fade while others stick around /

And some'll hurt more than others did /
5 years not so much, but 8 months, well, that's the cut that drips /
That tender spot sore, you ignore though you shouldn't /
There's not a day that passes by when you wish it wouldn't /

Was that a glimpse of summat or the drink I'm supping /
In my system, playing tricks, emphasising something /
That should be left alone, coz that time has passed /
And the wick has long since burnt down despite the wax /

(Chorus)
I see the flame flicker, dancing to a different rhythm /
And some get snuffed out sooner than they should have, isn't that a reason /
For the seeds of doubt planted here /
So while my candle burns, my time's spent tryna mask the fear /
