lyrics

when we were young I didn't know
the things we have don't stay that long
my father is gone, my mother too
(no one knows what'll happen to you)

when we were old I didn't think
the things we did could help or bring
new light to the dark
(or was it really too hard?)

the balance it can not shift
no matter what you give
the balance it can not shift
no matter what you give

now maybe there's a simple way
to keep the past close but far away
and maybe there's a better way
to live your life without its weight

when we were gone I didn't try
or even bother to ask why
sometimes we come to life
but mostly it just passes by

the balance it can not shift
no matter what you give
the balance it can not shift
no matter what you give
