The Center Of Time

This song is by Henning Ohlenbusch and appears on the album Looks Like I'm Tall (2006).

Somewhere near the center of time,
People are standing still.
It took them years to get this far,
To climb the expanding hill.
And the closer they'd get, the slower they'd move,
Until they didn't move at all.
Frozen now in a state of grace,
Just in the nick of time.

Somewhere near the center of time,
In a murky swirling mass,
People are struggling to find their place,
To make the moment last.
And a statue appears out of the mist
Of two lovers sharing a kiss.
As they will until the end the end of time,
But the time will never end.

And you can try to stop them,
And you can try to shun them,
And you can try to join them,
And become one of them.

Somewhere near the center of time,
Someone has changed her mind.
To take the turn is a terrible task,
Takes all the courage she can find.
To acknowledge the time
Is to acknowledge your death,
That one day you'll breathe your last breath.
She chose to live her life in time.
Yeah, she chose it just in time.

And you can try to stop them,
And you can try to shun them,
And you can try to join them,
And become one of them.
