Pain of Salvation The Passing Light of Day Lyrics

sponsored links
Though life has worned us down
Through sun and rain
You eyes are still the same
Deep blue against all gray
"Love, don't be afraid"
They seem to say
"I'll be here for you all the way
My lover
My best friend"

Do you remember us
That first January
You had just turned nineteen
And I was to be twenty
We fed on politics and poetry
Two children fueled by unbroken
dreams

You're watching me slowly slip away
Like the passing light of day
Watching the colors turn to grey
Like the passing light of day
The passing light of day

Better burn out, they say
Than fade away
Some candles last an hour
And others one full day

But I, I wanna be like the sun
That steady flame that burns on
and on
And still...

You're watching me slowly slip away
Like the passing light of day
We're watching the colors
turning grey
In the passing light

A lifetime since we met
that January
Two young kids feeding on politics
and poetry
Running on dreams

(Ending theme...)
Empires have fallen
Nations have been born
Heroes of our childhood
Dead, forgotten or gone
But we still stand
All those times that I went away
All those times that I couldn't stay
I wish that I could give them back
Wish that I could give them back

All those times when I failed on you
All those times that I turned on you
I wish that I could take them back
Just wish that I could take them back

'cause all those times are still here today
All those times they still hurt today
All those moments return today
All those times of "Another day"

You're watching me slowly slip away
Like the passing light of day
Watching the colors turning grey
Like the passing light of day

I need something new
If I could star anew
Would it be the same?
I need something new
To feel whole again
(if I only knew)
I will see this through
I need something new
Take me home again
(if I only knew)

All those people who worried us
All those things that were hurting us
None of that can reach me now
None of that can reach me now
All the darkness we fought about
All those things that we fought about
None of that can touch me now
None of that can touch me now

'cause all that matters is here today
All the thoughts that I think today
Every word that we say today
Every second alive today

We're all burning out, fading away
Like the passing light of day
We're all watching the colors turning
grey
In the passing light of day
We may wish we could run
Just walk away
From this passing light of day
But at some point we need to stop and say
It's ok
It's ok

"My love, don't be afraid"
I hear you say
"I'll be here for you all the way"
And I just wish that I could smile and say
"Baby, hey
I'm in too much pain
To feel afraid
My lover,
My best friend
Lover, best friend"

I'm watching it slowly slip away
Like the passing light day
Watching the colors turning grey
In the passing light of day
And although I wish
that I could stay
It somehow strangely feels ok
It is what is
I'll find my way

Through this passing light...
