Until the shadow falls on me

I used to think I had the words

To shape the world in which we live

I’m not that person anymore

I haven’t got that much to give

I used to think I’d know it all

Some time when everything was right

Now I don’t care how much I know

I’m glad if I can make it through the night

 

I’m out of time

Run out of time

But until the shadow falls on me

The day I meet my destiny

I’m fine

 

I watch the world wash past my face

See cataracts of sorrow race

And idly stand to add my share

To find that I have nothing there

The emptiness inside we fill

With extra sensory overkill

Till all we have is not our own

And someone else’s dreams will fill our home

 

I’m out of time

Run out of time

But until the shadow falls on me

The day I meet my destiny

I’m fine
