LyricsEdit

They didn't warn me,

When I was running wild,

The dragons breathing fire In the backyard at night,

We live in circles,


And it's so hard to breathe,


Maybe the same old fears,


What have we here?


Don't bring me down,

With you.


Now I'm just chasing time with a thousand dreams I'm holding heavy

And as we cross the line these fading beats have all been severed

Don't tell me our youth is running out It's only just begun...


If I asked you for good news

Would you smile and turn away?

It's like a bad dream

That is too afraid to wake

There are many among us


And we're changing all the time


Maybe the same old fears


What have we here?


Don't bring me down


With you.


Now I'm just chasing time with a thousand dreams I'm holding heavy

And as we cross the line these fading beats have all been severed

Don't tell me our youth is running out It's only just begun.


These fading beats…


These fading beats…


Now I'm just chasing time with a thousand dreams I'm holding heavy

And as we cross the line these fading beats have all been severed

Don't tell me our youth is running out It's only just begun


These fading beats…


A thousand dreams…


These fading beats…


A thousand dreams…


It's only just begun
