Time Is The Anchor

This song is by Chris Pureka and appears on the album How I Learned To See In The Dark (2010).

Run if you want to*
Yeah, run if you want to.
Yeah, run if you want to, time is the anchor, change is the constant, love is the trigger.
The cards have been dealt, the call from the belfry,
The raking of leaves, it only reminds me
I remember you asked, could I picture you older,
No, I can't see the laugh lines receding.
The grey doesn't suit you, the green light in your eyes,
It only reminds me of springtime

Oh and already, the time it had changed us, we question the kindness, test every trust, and we hang from the rafters and spit out such cruel things
Oh just like, 'You just know me, you don't know me at all'
'Yeah, you just don't know me, you don't know me at all.'
If the light's turning red, keep your hand on the door, because you know that it might be a lesson in letting go, it might be a lesson in losing the best things, it might be a lesson in never, never again'
Oh and already, the time it has changed me.

I fear I won't even cry when it's over.
It'll just be some shadow that sneaks out at sunset, only to wind up drunk on your doorstep.
You just know me, you don't know me at all.
Yeah, you just don't know me, you don't know me at all.
If the lights turning red, keep your hand on the door, because you know that it might be a lesson in letting go, it might be a lesson in losing the best things, it might be a lesson in never, never again
Run if you want to, Yeah, run if you want to

Run if you want to.
Yeah, run if you want to.
Yeah, run if you want to, time is the anchor, change is the constant, love is the trigger.
The cards have been dealt, the call from the belfry,
The raking of leaves, it only reminds me'
I remember you asked, could I picture you older,
No, I can't see the laugh lines receding.
The grey doesn't suit you, the green light in your eyes,
It only reminds me of springtime'
