The Passing Light Of Day

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

Though life has worn us down
Through sun and rain
Your eyes are still the same
Deep blue against all grey

"Love, don't be afraid"
They seem to say
"I'll be here for you all the way
My lover, my best friend"

Do you remember us
That first January?
You had just turned nineteen
And I was to be twenty

We fed on politics and poetry
Two children fueled by unbroken dreams

You're watching me slowly slip away
Like the passing light of day
Watching the colors turn to grey
Like the passing light of day
The passing light of day

Better burn out, they say
Than fade away
Some candles last an hour
And others one full day

But I wanna be like the sun
That steady flame that burns on
And on, and still...

We're watching this slowly slip away
Like the passing light of day
We're watching the colors turning grey
In the passing light

A lifetime since we met that January
Two young kids feeding on politics and poetry
Running on dreams

(Ending theme)
Empires have fallen
(Ending theme)
Nations have been born
(Ending theme)
The heroes of our childhood
(Ending theme)
Dead, forgotten, or gone
(Ending theme)

But we still stand

All those times that I went away
All those times that I couldn't stay
I wish that I could give them back
Wish that I could give them back

All those times when I failed on you
All those times that I turned on you
I wish that I could take them back
Just wish that I could take them back

Cause all those times are still here today
All those times they still hurt today
All those moments return today
All those times of "Another day"

You're watching me slowly slip away
Like the passing light of day
Watching all colors turning grey
Like the passing light of day

I need something new
If I could start anew
Would it be the same?
I need something new
To feel whole again
(If I only knew)
I will see this through
I need something new
Take me home again
(If I only knew)

All those people who worried us
All those things that were hurting us
None of that can reach me now
None of that can reach me now

All the darkness we thought about
All those things that we fought about
None of that can touch me now
None of that can touch me now

'Cause all that matters is here today
All the thoughts that I think today
Every word that we say today
Every second alive today

We're all burning out, fading away
Like the passing light of day
We are watching the colors turning grey
In the passing light of day
We may wish we could run, just walk away
From this passing light of day
But at some point we needed to stop and say
It's ok
It's ok

"My love, don't be afraid"
I hear you say
"I'll be here for you all the way"
And I just wish that I could smile and say
"Baby, hey, I'm in too much pain to feel afraid
My lover, my best friend"

Lover, best friend

I'm watching it slowly slip away
Like the passing light of day
Watching the colors turning grey
In the passing light of day
And although I wish that I could stay
It somehow strangely feels okay
It is what it is, I'll find my way
Through this passing light...
