Lyrics

i could never take it
i was never one to be tough
someone says we'll make it
i never thought that i could

follow up the paces
every time your misery clears
a spectacle of mercy
running down the hope that appears

listen up i mean it
theres something here between us to hear
think i wouldn't notice
something else is fighting my fear

if i had one more try i could fly with her
hide away the years
if i had one more life i could die with her
a whisper in her ear

everything is rising
like i never hoped that it would
somewhere down inside me
i could never find what was good

memories are tough here
heartache is rougher than time
someone left a promise
i'm already aching to try

who would ever want it
who would ever even dare
hope remains hopeless
the joke is that it's always there

if i had one more try i could fly with her
hide away the years
if i had one more life i could die with her
a whisper in her ear
