Song Description

A smooth guitar intro highlighting the artist's unique playing style of being both very percussive and melodic. The percussion that you hear is actually played on the guitar at the same time as the chords and melodies. The protaganist in this song has a longing for a lost love, and blames his loss on time itself. There's a sense that he still hopes for their souls to reunite after this life.

Story Behind the Song

The concept of time as a snake eating its own tail was in my head, and how the cyclical nature of that metaphor can lead to thoughts of being able to control time. And if there was one moment that this character can do over would be that fateful night his lover left, and he didn't show up on time to prevent it.


Seems like yesterday
When I was just a boy
How quickly things turn into memories
How quickly time goes by
If I can only grasp
The Second in your photograph
A perpetual smile on your face
We only live for today

And I only see your love,
Never another frown to come
If I only see your love,
Then time might not be so bad afterall.

Believe me when I say,
"I'm trying my best to prevail,"
But time is always in my way
Just like a driving nail

So I keep marching on
Side by side with each rising sun
And I keep holding on
To the dream of happiness to come

And its just a matter of time
When sand turns to stone
And diamonds are made from coal
And our bodies release our souls
If I could I would stop the clocks
Turn back time to where I once forgot
To see you standing there waiting for me,
But this time I arrive on time.

Suddenly it's tomorrow
And I'm looking back on today
I see the mouth of the snake
Eating the tail of yesterday
And I wonder what would happen
If I let myself be swallowed
Or if I tried to run away
Even though I know there's no escape
