The Lines

I was standing there by your side

You were talking of what you´ve seen and what you have done

How these travels have the power to change ones mind

But the same thing will let you down

When we carry these words inside one by one

And I ignore that your hand reach out for mine

How we are running, but still standing on the starting line

The lines, always behind

We´re racing but our shadow holds us down

The lines, always behind

We cannot see the glory for the hole in our side

I´m not looking to find

The reason why we live, I´m just trying to get by

And to steal a little distance to make me shine

And no one needs to know

That the shadows of my broken heart will never let me go

And when we fall we let bleed, we let it go to far

How we are running with our chains on the starting line

Our shadow holds us down

The lines, always behind

We cannot see the glory for the hole in our side

But tonight, all washed away

The shadow´s gone, I´m older and you are blind

Tonight, all washed away

The shadow´s gone tonight

The lines, all washed away
