​On A Tuesday

This song is by Pain Of Salvation and appears on the album In The Passing Light Of Day (2017).

I was born in this building
It was the first Tuesday I had ever seen
And if I live to see tomorrow
It will be my Tuesday number 2119

How life has its way
Of turning your best suit the wrong way
As if to smile and say
"I feast on irony, my friend
I am come-what-may
And it might just be, my friend
This is your unlucky day
Will you change?
What would you give to stay?"

Will I change?
I honestly can't say
I have no promises to trade
For the Lord of come-what-may
To provide me with another day
Every promise that I make
Is a promise I might break

The things we humans say to survive
The promises we make
The lies we tell, the vows we take
The battles we all win to survive
The prices we will pay
Though we all know
We will lose one day

Life is a ride, they say
But there are tickets I will never pay
I'm afraid there'll be no vow today
For any God of come-what-may

You let me live, you let me die
For what I am right here and now
For nothing more than all I am today
I close my eyes, I do not pray

Promises, they tempt me to
Will I change?
I won't be that fool
Maybe for a day, a week, maybe two
I'm a dreamer physicist
A man-child escapist
The face of death won't make me an evangelist
I close my hands, not in prayer, not in prayer
Into fists

I lost the will

The things we humans say to survive
The promises we make
The lies we tell, the vows we take
The battles we all win to survive
The prices we will pay
Though we will lose either way

I lost the will
I lost the way
I haven't lost the faith
It's just lost in me

I lost the will
I lost the way
I haven't lost the faith
It's just lost in me

I lost the will
I lost the way
I haven't lost the faith
It's just lost in me

I lost the will

The things that we must say
To pretend this passing light of day
Is not the end, is not the end

The things that we all say to be saved
The things that we will trade
Just give away for one more day
We'll smile and tell sweet lies
To chase away the shadows that play
Cast by the passing light of day
