Once Surrounded



Version of the song Length Containing on which release

Album Version 5:31 Looking Skyward [CD]

You've gone from walking on air
To all the nights you spent wrapped up in despair,
You'd have to question what you got in return

You watch as the years go slipping by
No amount of drugs could give you such a high
The longest lessons done
And what did you learn?

Once surrounded but now they're gone
Sing your part in your final song
Once you counted but that's the thanks you get
Lock the door when you go to bed

What does it take to do it right
To keep the memories when it's always such a fight
You have to walk the path
As the tide is coming in

When do you start to see the light
When it's so dark that a candle would seem bright
You've got your freedom back
You don't know how to begin

Once surrounded but now they're gone
Sing your part in your final song
Once you counted but that's the thanks you get
Lock the door when you go to bed

And why should you walk away with nothing?
Why should you fade away to nothing

Once surrounded but now they're gone
Sing your part in your final song
Once you counted but that's the thanks you get
Lock the door when you go to bed

Just stay young...
