Hard To Stop As Time - Lyrics

You cast a quiet shadow falling over me
Yet I try to hold you grasping at sunbeams
The image drifts away, tunnels in my mind
Holding on so tightly, hard to stop as time
You're as hard to stop as time
(Hmmmm)

How I wish to keep you firmly at my side
God's great moon above you, playing with the tides
But still the world it turns, pulling you away
Leaving me a specter wishing you could stay
Oh, I'm wishing you could stay
(Hmmmm)

There once was a man, such a fool as I
Set his heart to stop the sun up in the sky
Fixed his mind upon it, studying with time
Saw you, gave up, but not before the man went blind
(oh) Oh not before the man went blind, yeah
Ohhhh ohhhh
And I can't hold on to you
Unless you hold on too
(hmm)

There I try to cage you, risk to lose my mind
Spend life to control you, heartbeat never mine
Nothing I can do but trust and watch your signs
Falling slowly for you, hard to stop as time
Hm, It's as hard to stop as time
Falling slowly for hard to stop as time
