about

when the world moves faster than you

lyrics

There's a gravity
Makes me move myself around
And I'm unable to speed it up or slow it down
And I always seem to fall behind, but somehow stay on top
Or else I'm lost into the aging, continuous, counter-rhythm clock

Oh - do I look as tired as I feel
And is this - is this life for real
Why do I act as if I'm made of steel
And do the cuts that run the deepest ever heal

Me I got a new design
A way to make things work
To be more of a woman and less of a jerk
And I always try to keep my wrongs from right
Or else I'm bound to live a life full of loneliness and never mending fights

Oh - do I look as tired as I feel
And is this - is this life for real
Why do I act as if I'm made of steel
And do the cuts that run the deepest ever heal

I made it pretty far now
Down a dark and twisty road
And the bulk of my trouble
Comes from doing what I'm told
And I always try to take my own advice
Or else I'm bound to lose my instinct
And fall victim to the dealer and his dice

Oh - do I look as tired as I feel
And is this - is this life for real
Why do I act as if I'm made of steel
And do the cuts that run the deepest ever heal
But do I look as happy as I feel
Is this - is this life for real
The world it was designed with such appeal
And the remarkable ability to heal
