about

Repeating the mistakes of the past.

lyrics

we faced off in the snow
eyes locked together
we faced off in the snow
locked in a stare
we faced off in the snow
eyes locked together
we faced off in the snow
eyes locked together…

we’re still half students,
we’re still surviving
and living with hand-me-downs
we have a gift for knowing
how to enjoy and not to drown

is it in our bones perhaps
our hearts they were
in the right place
they grew too big
right from the start
we both run the race

we have come here
we were drawn together
though our pasts both fell apart
we are grownup children
of a modern day failed art

we repeat the past
magnified through the looking glass
we are the reason
we failed
we’re proud of being crass

it is in our hearts
to reach out
for a love
that sped up
right from the start
we both run the race

we have come here
we were drawn together
we held each other up for courage
we are grownup children

of a modern day failed marriages…
of a modern day failed marriages…

we face each other
our eyes are locked together

I come from the land of fear and snow
waving our thoughts to and fro’
I’ve got a glass
You’ve got a drink
Let’s get together and sink
Into ourselves

We are not the past
We are looking ahead
Not behind us
Too the future instead
What will become of
Our lives

It’s to hard to say
We don’t know What we have today
Is all we’ve got to go on

we have come here
we were drawn together
we held each other up for courage
we are grownup children
of a modern day failed marriages…

is it in our bones perhaps
our hearts they were
in the right place
they grew too big right from the start
we both run the race
we both run the race

we stand here face to face
eyes locked together
face to face
