It¹s the years first snow on the outside, and I¹m holding
you on the inside... and nice try, but between us, it¹s an hour¹s
drive. You know I have trouble with distance, you grow legends.. I just
grow... distant. With the bus in the shop, it¹s quite a long walk.
New Year¹s Eve was quite a storm, the time was racing. Eaten up
in a frenzy by that stupid job of yours. And I never met so many bigots,
all in just one night, but if this is LIfe, than it¹s not worth
Living. please don¹t be like this. Just don¹t choose this.
The atmosphere it gathers, for one last push. It shoves the twenty in
the gutter, just out of reach. ANd I stretch and I pull but when you¹re
neck down deep down in it, you just end up freezing. Please don¹t
be like this, just don¹t choose this. chorus We are the chosen ones,
things academics could not comprehend, or so they say. We have the force
of muses, we carry their obsession, and we keep watch... we carry them
through this storm. So why am I so hung up on people who waste their
time? Crying over things that don¹t care to be cried for? The storm
is rising, I feel it in my teeth, you lied to him, could you lie to me?
This doubt is in my teeth. But, you know that 20 as well as I, if you
could swallow your pride, it maybe just might just save your Life. But
vision is dirty, and passion is dirty, and Living is dirty, and you want
to keep so clean. You know I could set you free, no wonder you don¹t
want to touch me. They know I could set you free, no matter, you don¹t
want to touch me. chorus And I carried you every day.
