Lyrics

Matter of Time

Written By: Vikash Mishra

Here and now I have you with me
Here and now, life is grand
One step forward, one step back
Dancing in between the cracks

in the dark when i cannot sleep
the quiet voice starts getting louder
right now, everything's fine
but it could be just a matter of time

i know that i am insecure
and more than a little paranoid
looking for the silver lining
of a cloud that isn't here
one step forward, one step back
we dance in between the cracks
you are laughing and i am glad to have you here
to have you here

forever is a long time
even taken day by day
but i know despite ourselves we may only hold on for so long

one step forward, one step back
dancing slow between the cracks
you're still smiling
and i'm still glad
we're still happy
never sad

one step forward, one step back
still dancing along the cracks
for the moment, everything's fine
but it could be just a matter of--
one step forward, one step back
still dancing between the cracks
for the moment, everything's fine
but it could be just a matter of time, just a matter of time

Whispers

Written By: Vikash Mishra

in the silence only touch remains, and i become afraid of words--whispers in a line, pulling to goodbye

all you never thought to hide from me, now i see plainly
and i love you anyway, though i grieve

a candle flickers in the night, a silent source of burning light; i feel you breathing next to me, and an omen of reality

you never promised you would stay, though i believed the other way
in spite of everything you said to me, i thought i saw plainly

and i love you anyway, and i will not hurt you--i carry you with me still, though we stand apart--i will not hurt you

a candle flickers in the night--a fiery point of burning light--and i feel you dreaming next to me, but i can't forget reality

on this darkening path, i thought i found a way out
on this darkening path, i thought you knew the way out
on this darkening path, i lost myself to you, i lost myself to you
stumbling in the dark, i wonder how i hurt you

a candle flickers in the night, a fiery point of burning light.
i still feel you breathing next to me--i can't take this clarity
a candle burns out in the night, an ember now of burning light
i still feel you dreaming next to me--and the ghosts here, the ghosts of memory

Wake

Written By: Vikash Mishra

I've never been one for speaking--
the words tumble and fall, tumble and fall
breaking on the waves of this runaway train of thought
while all the fear that lived in here keeps trying to move, trying to move back in
like the shock that can shadow sleep

if i'd just make it through this
everything would be fine
not looking past this moment
trying not to look behind

there's so much i could say to you
but you pretend to be deaf, pretend to be blind to avoid the places we'd be going

i'm not trapped, i'm not ashamed
if i'm a little bit afraid
it's cause these imperfect words can't quite say it

if i make it through this
everything could be fine
not looking past this moment
trying not to look behind

'cause all the fear that lived in here will keep trying to move, trying to move back in til i've made you understand

i don't want to burn any bridges--i have regrets, we all have regrets
i just wish you'd let me lay some to rest

if i'd just make it through this, everything could be fine
then this moment passes, and i'm left looking behind
i will make it through this
everything will be fine
when this moment passes
i won't be looking behind
