Sustain

 

I keep my company with the lonely ones

Burning out in red with the timely suns

I reveled in the rain, marveled at the water

I'll never be the same ever since I called to her

 

Reaching out to give my life a name

I feel electrified in my foolish games

I ran into the smoke, trying how far I could go

Don't fail you'll never know, won't feel the magic sick and slow

 

Time won't subside

We want too widely to grow wise

 

Keep my vision straight

There are fiercer pains

There are nobler dreams

Oh can you find the means

To wake up, give it up

To love long

To keep feeling when you're not performing for anyone

To keep on humming you're heart out when the song is long done

 

Illuminate the veils and the barriers

Don't wanna hope in vain in these golden years

When they'll fight until they fall, I complied so I could stand at all

When it knocks me to my knees, I'll fold my hands a pray for peace

Is it resplendent or replete, no force can steal the spark from me

 

Time grandly marches on

We hope too deeply to accept the dawn

 

Keep my vision straight

There are fiercer pains

There are nobler dreams

Oh can you find the means

To wake up, give it up

To love long

To keep feeling when you're not performing for anyone

To keep on humming you're heart out when the song is long done

 

Give it up

My faith is rising, the rain is falling up

Give it up

Life is a blessing, will you confess it up

 

Time blindly marches on

So near resigning to be swept along

 

Keep my vision straight

There are fiercer pains

There are nobler dreams

Oh can you find the means

To wake up, give it up

To love long

To keep feeling when you're not performing for anyone

To keep on humming you're heart out when the song is long done
