Sobering Days (lyrics)

Time ticking away
Winning the race it won from the start
And creeps under your skin
Denying the youth you hold in your heart

You’ve got more dreams left to realize
More things that you wanna try
So many roads yet to take
These are there days, the sobering days

Lines earned on your face
Fanning the fire, beating the drums
And all that you feel…
That used to inspire, now holds the gun

Promises yet to keep
Pull hard at your gravity
Driving you crazy, you say
These are there days, the sobering days

Trust there’s a light in your heart
The way out be gentle, forgive, and take care
Soon this will pass and the skies will clear out the darkness that holds you down
Till there’s nothing left to hold you down
Nothing left to hold you down
Nothing…

You’ve got more dreams left to realize
More things that you wanna try
So many roads yet to take
These are the days, the sobering days
