Troubled Times

from Promised Land

When you think you've found something worth holding onto
We're reaching for attention hoping she would notice you
Collecting bottles and throwing away cans
Like she was returnable one day would refill your hands
How she loved you, all you imagined fit so well into your plans

Maybe one day soon it will all come out
How you dream about each other sometimes
With the memory of how you once gave up
But you made it through the troubled times

Pining away every hour in your room
Rolling with emotion, waiting 'til it's opportune
Sitting there watching time fly past you
Why do tomorrow what you could never do
How she loved you, all you imagined, all this shit she put you through

Maybe one day soon it will all come out
How you dream about each other sometimes
With the memory of how you once gave up
But you made it through the troubled times

And it takes a lot of nerve to ask how she is doing
Start with a weak foundation, you will end in ruins
The way the days and hours pass you'll never understand
Falling like rain through your hands

Maybe one day soon it will all come out
How you dream about each other sometimes
With the memory of how you once gave up
But you made it through the troubled times

Maybe one day soon it will all come out
How you dream about each other sometimes
With the memory of how you once gave up
But you made it through the troubled times
