Lyrics

It's so typical, I’m still living each day as January first
So elliptical, rounding the curve and still so very unversed
I try to lose the past

So much trying and so much fumbling on a such monumental scale
So much time spent wasted, mumbling out a cautionary tale
Nothing seems to last

So I close my eyes and I’m five again
Staring at my future history
Seeing all the places and the people I will know
And every precious gift they bring to me

So confusing, looking for clues to uncover any reason or rhyme
It's all in the choosing, all in the listening, all in the rhythm of time
We're all just keeping time
