Story Behind The Song

I wrote this while going through my own period of self-doubt. A family member was also an influence in my writing the lyrics. They were experiencing their own stuff.

In the passing of your time
You have slipped so far away
Only to come back
To find yourself again
You cannot play these games
Forever with your soul
Your days are growing shorter
Your nights are getting cold

All the tears you cry in anger
Will never change what is to come
And, if you choose to live by the memories you had
Then it's life your running from

As the moon shines in the evening
So the sun shall warm the day
Listen closely to the dark hours
But, let the light show you the way
There's a silence that is deafening
When it comes to feeling fear
As the world falls all around you
Ever time success is near.

Is it frightful in the night-time
Will tomorrow bring you through
Do you hold on to the false hopes
That all along have comforted you


When the final moment arises and you've nothing left to say
You better make sure that your living years will never fade away
You better make sure that your living years were never wasted away.

Listen closely now
Listen hard
Listen hard
