Sudden Life

Floating in the clouds, I'm giving up the fight

A voice is calling out, I'm walking into the light

 

We used to race a thousand miles a day so fast

Feet they barely even touched the ground

We used to fly to places out beyond our own little world

The fury and the sound

 

I saw it flicker like a television set

Bright flashes of a warning sign

Flipping channels in a world gone static

Eroding away line by the fading line

 

Under water for years we found, till we started to swim than drown

The current takes us, now we're walking into the light

 

Are you dying all your life? (Walking into the light)

(Walking into the light)

Broken, beat and tired out (Walking into the light)

You want to live but don't know how (Walking into the light)

Diagnosis: sudden life (Walking into the light)

(Walking into the light)

Can no one revive me now?

Feels like I'm walking into the light

 

Woke up floating on a wave of golden sound

Tunnel vision and a great beyond

Heart beating like a rhythm slowing down

And it's gone, an echo of a song

 

Flat line and a closing bell

Whisper a warm farewell

The flames are beckoning

As we're walking into the light

 

Are you dying all your life? (Walking into the light)

(Walking into the light)

Broken, beat and tired out (Walking into the light)

You want to love but don't know how (Walking into the light)

Diagnosis: sudden life (Walking into the light)

(Walking into the light)

Can no one revive me now?

Feels like I'm walking into the light

 

Don't suppose that you know the way?

Don't suppose that you care?

I see lights up ahead and hear choirs of angels ring in my ears

But you know that, had you a choice, you would go back and do it again

We all have unfinished business to tend

 

So no I won't go gentle

Into the good night

You can keep your candle

I'm walking away from the light

Yeah I'm walking away from the light

I'm walking away from the light

I'm walking away from the light

I'm walking away from the light

 

Diagnosis: sudden life (Walking away from the light)

(Walking away from the light)

I woke up my heart racing, I'm (Walking away from the light)

At a loss explaining why (Walking away from the light)

Are you dying all your life? (Walking away from the light)

(Walking away from the lightt)

Then put your darkest days behind

Let life flash right before your eyes (Walking away from the light)

And for very the first time,

It feels like I'm walking away from the light
