Longest Days Lyrics

Seems like
Once upon a time ago
I was where
I was supposed to be
My vision was true
And my heart was too
There was no end
To what I could dream
I walked like a hero
Into the setting sun
Everyone called out my name
Death to me was just a mystery
I was too busy raising up Cain

But nothing lasts forever
Your best efforts
Don't always pay
Sometimes you get sick
And don't get better
That's when life is short
Even in it's longest days

So you pretend not to notice
That everything has changed
The way that you look
And the friends you once had
So you keep on acting the same
But deep down in your soul
You know you, you got no flame
And who knows
Then which way to go
Life is short even
In it's longest days

All I got here
Is a rear view mirror
Reflections of where I've been
So you tell yourself
I'll be back up on top some day
But you know there's nothing
Waiting up there for you anyway

Nothing lasts forever
And your best efforts
Don't always pay
Sometimes you get sick
And you don't get better
That's when life is short
Even in it's longest days

Life is short
Even in it's longest days
